Latex Environment Statement

Due to the broad range of equipment, manikins, materials and supplies used in the College’s practice and simulation laboratories and within a vast number of hospitals and other types of clinical facilities serving as sites for student clinical education, the Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA), Dental Hygiene, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nursing, Paramedic/EMS, Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) and Radiography (RADI) programs are NOT latex-free environments. Students with latex allergies considering any of these health programs should direct questions to their physician to ensure it is safe for them to participate prior to applying to the program.

Positive Drug Screen Statement

Students with a positive drug screen will be deemed ineligible to participate in clinical education. Furthermore, as clinical education is a critical requirement of Nursing, Allied Health and Emergency Medical Services programs, the student will be dismissed from their current program of study. For students who would like to be considered for re-admission, they should refer to their program’s policy of re-admission and direct questions to the program director.
