CNA

Application Procedure

We are no longer taking applications for the CNA and PCT programs.

 

Each Program requires a criminal background check and drug screening

An extensive criminal background check (CBC), including, but not limited to, a seven-year county of residence and nationwide criminal history check, national sexual predator screening, Social Security check, and Medicare/Medicaid fraud screening is required by all clinical affiliates. All TCC Nursing students participating are required to complete these background checks and a drug screening test by the Nursing Division deadline. Any positive findings may be subject to review by the clinical affiliates and could prevent the student from progressing in the program due to inability to complete clinical requirements.
