See the rubric at the end of this document
Conditionally Accepted Nursing Students Applicants who accept a seat in the nursing program will be considered “conditionally accepted”. Full acceptance into the nursing program is contingent upon the successful completion of the clinical clearance process and completion of college-specific processes, such as registration.
Conditionally accepted students are required to attend all meetings or other events scheduled prior to the start of classes. Additionally, conditionally accepted students must enroll in program classes prior to the first day of the semester. Failure to attend these meetings or enroll in program courses without prior approval from the Director of Nursing will result in removal from the nursing program.
In order for nursing students to complete the required clinical hours while in the program, conditionally accepted students are required to complete the clinical clearance process prior to enrollment in nursing courses. The clinical clearance process includes a criminal background check, drug screen, physical examination, and completion of the onboarding process as required by our clinical partners. The admission status will be revoked for conditionally accepted students who fail to successfully complete these items by the established due date. Please note that additional screening may be required after graduation by examination boards, state licensing boards, and employing agencies. Pending the outcome, a graduate may be disqualified from examination eligibility, state licensure, and/or employment.
The following requirements are verified by the Nursing department after students have been conditionally accepted. NOTE: Failure to complete the items below by the established due date without prior approval of the Director of Nursing will result in removal from the nursing program.
NOTE: At times clinical agencies may change the above requirements, mandate expiration dates, OR require additional immunizations. Students are expected to meet and maintain compliance with all the requirements of clinical agencies throughout the duration of their enrollment even if they are not listed above.
The Davidson-Davie Community College PNE enrollment process is not to be regarded as a contract between DDCC and students. DDCC reserves the right to change any provisions or requirements with adequate notice and minimum disruption to students.
