Are there background checks and drug screens required?
Yes, background checks and drug screens are a requirement of some clinical facilities with which Truckee Meadows Community College has a contract for nursing student clinical experience. If a student declines or if the background check or drug screen is unsatisfactory to the facility, the student will not be permitted to participate in the clinical portion of the program. Current and prospective students are advised that they will be withdrawn from the program if clinical requirements are not able to be met for any reason. TMCC will not be responsible for obtaining background checks or drug screens and will not receive the results of any background investigations.
