A fingerprint background check is required for all applicants for NCLEX.

Students enrolling in an Allied Health program should be aware that clinical facilities require criminal background checks and drug screening of those involved in client care. In some instances, such checks also will be needed to take licensure exams. Based on this, Kaskaskia College will require background checks and drug screening upon entry into the program. Students will not be allowed to participate in clinicals when their background check makes them ineligible for the work to be performed. The cost of such screening will be included in program fees.

NOTE: The program requirements presented here are effective Spring 2013. Previous versions of the KC Catalog are available in their entirety at our catalog archive.
