ADB Background Check

 

 

 

                     BACKGROUND CHECK AND DRUG SCREEN

ALL nursing students in ALL programs 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 AN INVITATION TO START THE PROGRAM.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INCOMING STUDENTS
 DO NOT DRINK MORE 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 8 oz. 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 nursing program.
 

Important: Any prior conviction of a misdemeanor or felony may influence eligibility for licensure as a Registered Nurse.  A flagged background check or drug screen may also prohibit entrance and/or participation in the nursing program.  Applicants with prior convictions are required to contact the Director of Nursing for confidential advisement and planning prior to applying to the program and visit the California Board of Registered Nursing 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 Nursing Program to speak with the Director of Nursing for confidential advisement and visit the California Board of Registered Nursing website at http:/www.rn.ca.gov/enforcement/convictions.shtml.  To make an appointment with the Director of Nursing, please call (619)644-7301 to discuss your options.
