NOTICE for all current and future healthcare students: For all allied health and nursing students who seek to begin MCCCD healthcare programs on or after September 1, 2011, new background check standards will be in effect.
Additionally, students who have been admitted to an MCCCD healthcare program or who are currently enrolled in one as of September 1, 2011 will be required to sign an MCCCD Criminal Background Check Disclosure Acknowledgement form. These changes are necessary due to the fact that six of eleven of MCCCD's largest clinical experience hospital partners have established stringent background check standards that preclude MCCCD from assigning students to those sites who cannot meet those standards.
In order for MCCCD students to be able to continue to complete clinical experiences at local hospitals, students must meet these new standards.
