I have read and understand the Nursing Program’s “Essential Functions or Abilities” listed above. I believe I am capable of meeting the “Essential Functions of the Nursing Program” at Frederick Community College.

Frederick Community College prohibits discrimination against any person on the basis of age, ancestry, citizenship status, color, creed, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, genetic information, marital status, mental or physical disability, national origin, race, religious affiliation, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status in its activities, admissions, educational programs, and employment. The College subscribes to full access to all college facilities as outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and as amended.

Denial of Nursing Licensure and Clinical Site Placement Acknowledgment
Please be advised:  In accordance with the policies of many of our clinical facilities as well as in compliance with the recommendations of the National Council, State Boards of Nursing and the Maryland Board of Nursing, Frederick Community College’s Nursing Program requires all nursing students to have a criminal background check and drug screening.  This background check and drug screening will be completed prior to full admittance to the program and may be repeated during the program as deemed necessary.

All students must be successfully cleared via this background check and drug screening to be admitted to the clinical facilities.  If a student is not successfully cleared, the student may not enter the clinical setting and, therefore, will be unable to meet the Nursing Program’s requirements.

If, during the program, a student tests positive for an illegal or un-prescribed drug, the student will be immediately terminated from the program.

Program applicants are advised that the Maryland Board of Nursing as well as other State Boards of Nursing may deny licensure to any individual they deem to be unsuitable for the practice of nursing.  Examples include, but are not limited to, falsifying application information, habitual intoxication and/or narcotic addiction, convictions or “nolo contendere” pleas for felonies or crimes of moral turpitude, whether or not appears of other proceedings are pending or in progress (Maryland Nurse Practice Act).

If you have any questions regarding this matter, make an appointment with Vanessa Lovato, Director of Nursing Education at vlovato@frederick.edu or 301.846.2607, or call the Maryland Board of Nursing at 410.585.1900.

Have you ever been arrested for, charged with or convicted of a:
 
Misdemeanor?

Felony?

 
I attest that all of the above information is correct and factual.  I understand that falsification of any student record, including address, will be grounds for dismissal from the nursing program.
