- Students admitted to a health science program are required to complete a clinical practicum. A major part of the program involves learning experiences in the clinical setting.
Our clinical facilities require criminal background checks and drug screens on students who will participate in these learning experiences. The students will incur the cost of the criminal background checks and drug screen. Information obtained from the criminal background check and drug screen could jeopardize the student’s ability to participate in clinical experiences and would result in the inability of the student to complete the program.
The College reserves the right to change any restrictions or program requirements at any time. Johnston Community College will make every effort to lessen the inconvenience any change creates for students.
