3. The student must assume responsibility for his/her own health in the event of illness,
accident, or exposure to communicable disease. Evidence of health insurance is
required prior to clinical practicum.
4. All nursing students are required to meet the requirements of the facilities utilized for
clinical experience which may include laboratory screenings, drug screens, and
immunizations. All students are required to have a repeat tuberculin skin test at the
end of the first year. Health and other forms will be provided as needed. Required
items must be submitted before students are permitted entry into the clinical facilities.
5. All nursing students will be expected to pay a Testing Fee each semester which
includes skills kit, testing, nursing resources and NCLEX review course.

scissors, and watch with sweep second hand.
7. Nursing students are required to join the Darton State College GANS Chapter to
enhance professional development.
8. All nursing students will be required to pay for a criminal background check, and drug
screening, on admission to the program. This information will be available to all
clinical facilities. * If the student has a conviction in the criminal background check,
the student may not be permitted into a particular practice setting. Students should
note that prior felony charges/convictions are typically not allowed clearance into
most healthcare settings. Since clinical is required to complete the course
requirements successfully, caution should be taken in circumstances in which the
student has a prior criminal charge/conviction.
9. If drug abuse is suspected, the student will be required to be tested at the student’s
expense. Darton State College reserves the right to request random drug testing of
any nursing student at any time during the nursing program, at the expense of the
student. A mandatory drug screen is required, at the expense of the student, prior to
admission to the program and will also be required randomly throughout the course
of the program.
Additional Graduation Requirements
In addition to the College graduation requirements, the student must have a minimum
grade of "C" in each nursing course.
