Certain criminal convictions may prevent licensure as a nurse or certification as a nurse aide in Virginia.  Criminal convictions may also prohibit employment in certain health care settings.

Students convicted on any felony do not qualify for the nursing program at DCC.  Students convicted of any misdemeanor involving moral turpitude/barrier crimes do not qualify for the nursing program at DCC.  Any clinical facility has the right to refuse a student clinical placement in their facility based on prior criminal, drug or employment history.  It is strongly advised that any such student contact the program head for clarification.  The clinical facilities will not allow students to complete clinical hours and students will not be able to meet the Virginia Board of Nursing requirements of direct clinical hours, nor meet the credit requirement for graduation.  Students must produce a satisfactory criminal background check to the standards of ALL clinical agencies used by the college for experiential/clinical learning upon enrolling in the nursing program.  Any charges or costs to secure the evaluation will be the responsibility of the student.

Any student entering the program who has committed illegal offenses other than minor traffic violations should discuss these matters with the program head for clarification.
