Admission to any School of Nursing academic program or other clinical or research postdoctoral fellowships is conditional upon review and acceptance of prospective students' or fellows' criminal background investigation. The University reserves the right to rescind or revoke an offer of admission or appointment to any educational or training program to any individual, or dismiss a student whose criminal background investigation reveals a history of criminal conduct that:

  • the University reasonably determines increases the risk of harm to patients or individuals on University or third party premises where a student may be engaged in clinical experiences required by the educational or training program;
  • was not accurately disclosed in response to a direct question regarding criminal history on any application for admission or appointment in connection with the program; and/or
  • is inconsistent with the high standard of ethical conduct required of all members of the academic community or is otherwise unbefitting a member of the academic community.
