To: All Health Sciences Students (Current and New Admissions)
Re: Drug Screening NOTICE!
Effective January 1, 2013 all students (currently enrolled and new admissions) will be required to provide documentation of a negative 10- panel drug screen.
Health care providers are entrusted with the health, safety, and welfare of patients/ clients. The safety and welfare of patients/clients cared for by our students is of primary concern in all Health Sciences programs and the clinical agencies that provide essential clinical experiences for the students. Clinical rotations are an essential component of Health Sciences programs and the College must meet the contractual obligations contained in affiliation agreements.
DO NOT take any action at this time. If you are a currently enrolled student, your program will provide information during the fall related to the drug screening. Results from any company or government entity other than those designated by Health Sciences will not be accepted. If you are a new student, you will receive information with your admission packet.
Any student (currently enrolled and new admissions) with a positive drug screen will be withdrawn from the program.
