BACKGROUND CHECK AND DRUG SCREEN

ALL Respiratory Therapy students will be required to complete a background check and urine drug screen. THIS IS A HOSPITAL/HEALTH CARE AGENCY REQUIREMENT.
Students will be given the information to obtain these requirements upon admission to the program. The Background Check is completed through American Data Bank (ADB)---> http://sdnsebackground.com/ . DO NOT COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT UNTIL YOU RECEIVE AND INVITATION TO START THE PROGRAM.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INCOMING STUDENTS
DO NOT DRINK MOR THAN 8 OUNCES OF LIQUIDS WITHIN 8 HOURS OF YOUR URINE DRUG SCREEN.

The day of your urine drug test, DO NOT drink more than 8oz. of any liquid. If you drink an excessive amount of liquid prior to conducting your urine drug screen, the results will be diluted and / or altered and therefore incomplete. If your drug screen results come back dilute, you will not be able to be placed in clinical settings therefore, you will be ineligible to enter the Respiratory Therapy Program.

Important:
Any prior conviction of a misdemeanor or felony may influence eligibility for licensure as a Respiratory Therapist. A flagged background check or drug screen may also prohibit entrance and / or participation in the Respiratory Therapy Program. Applicants with prior convictions are required to contact the Dean of Allied Health and  Nursing for confidential advisement and planning prior to applying to the program and visit the California Board of Respiratory Therapist website for general information.

If you feel that you might not be eligible for licensure due to a prior arrest or conviction, please contact the Grossmont College Allied Health and Nursing Department to speak with the Dean. To make an appointment with the Dean, please call (619) 644-7149 to discuss your option.
