Health Professions: HIM - Background Check

Criminal Background Check chart

All Health Professions students are personally responsible as required for completing the required background checks or screenings. Students are required to bear the costs of such tests. Admission to the program will be evaluated should there be positive criminal or sex offender results. Tidewater Community College does not assume any responsibility for obtaining or evaluating the results of a criminal background check, drug screen or other check, maintaining the records of results or for delivering them to clinical sites. Students who refuse to undergo a criminal background check or drug screen or other required check will not be placed at certain clinical facilities and consequently may not be able to complete program requirements and graduate. Tidewater Community College will make reasonable efforts to place all enrolled students in the required clinical training. Please see HIM Program Director prior to completing criminal background check.

Students are also reminded that licensing boards for certain health care occupations and professions may deny, suspend or revoke a license or may deny the individual the opportunity to sit for an examination if an applicant has a criminal history or is convicted or pleads guilty or nolo contendere to a felony or other serious crime. Successful completion of a health professions program of study at Tidewater Community College does not guarantee licensure, the opportunity to sit for a licensure examination, certification or employment in the relevant health care occupation.
