Joyce University of Nursing and Health Sciences believes that the enrollment of qualified students contributes to the overall success of the education process. Background screens, drug screens, and reference checks serve as important parts of the admissions process. At Joyce, background screens, drug screens, and reference checks are conducted on every student applicant.
This process is conducted to verify the accuracy of the information provided by the applicant.
The following verifications may be conducted:
- Social Security Number Verification
- Criminal Convictions (applicable federal, state and/or county/local records)
- Sexual Offender and Predator Registry
- Applicable State Medicaid Exclusion List
- GSA List of Parties Excluded from Federal Programs
- OIG List of Excluded Individuals
An applicant who fails to pass a background screen, drug screen, and/or reference check may not be admitted to the Institution, at the Institution’s discretion
An applicant may not be admitted if the criminal history report indicates a conviction of either a felony classification or misdemeanor within the past seven (7) years unless there are mitigating circumstances
Admission to the Institution or any of its programs does not guarantee that an individual will be eligible for employment or licensure. Employers and licensing agencies may have more restrictive requirements, and it is the student’s responsibility to review licensing and employment eligibility standards
