Criminal Background Check

A criminal background check will be required as part of the nursing program admission process. If a student steps out of the program and needs to re-enter an additional criminal background check will be required. When students complete the nursing program they are eligible to apply to take the national nursing licensure exam. At the time of application the Michigan Department of Licensing will require a criminal background check with fingerprinting. If a student is deemed not eligible to sit for the national licensure exam Montcalm Community College will not be responsible.
