The Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing reserves the right to deny a professional license to any applicant who has been convicted of a felony or any offense related to the use and sale of alcohol or controlled substances in Pennsylvania or any other state. Other felony convictions, and certain misdemeanor offenses, may be considered impaired moral character. The determination of whether such conduct constitutes poor moral character is a discretionary matter for the Board of Nursing. Students should contact the Board with questions pertaining to this policy.
Students are required to submit the following before entering the clinical setting and each year: a $20 money order for malpractice insurance, cleared criminal record check and cleared child abuse check for Pennsylvania and State of residence, history and physical examination, up-to-date CPR, immunization records, and tuberculin testing. Compliance with these requirements are mandatory prior to admission to the nursing program. All compliance paperwork should be submitted together in one packet. The complete packet is due no later than August 1st (Fall semester) and December 1st (Spring semester). Any student who has not submitted all requested clinical requirements will be withdrawn from the clinical course before classes begin.
