Background Check and Drug Screen Notification

Clinical facilities utilized by the Gateway Nursing Program require students to have clear background checks and drug screens and can deny student participation in clinical/observation rotations at their facilities. Since clinical participation is required to meet the nursing course outcomes, if a facility denies a student admittance to clinical, the student will not be able to progress in the nursing program. Gateway does not accept responsibility for any student being ineligible for clinical participation based on background checks or drug screens and continued enrollment in the ADN program.

Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN) Criminal Conviction Notification

Note: KBN may deny a nursing graduate admission to the NCLEX-RN Exam if an individual has been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony which involves acts that bear directly on the qualifications of the graduate to practice nursing. Applicants are encouraged to visit the KBN website for more information.
