The Arkansas State Board of Nursing (ASBN) requires a criminal background check for all graduates applying for licensure. Graduating from a nursing program does not assure ASBN’s approval to take the licensure examination. Eligibility to take the licensure examination is dependent on meeting standards in the ASBN Nurse Practice Act and Rules. You will be required to sign a statement before, beginning the nursing program, that states you have read and understood ACA §17-87-312 and the specific offenses which, if you pleaded guilty, nolo contendere, or found guilty of will, make an individual ineligible to receive or hold a licensure in Arkansas. You can access the information at http://www.arsbn.arkansas.gov/lawsRules/Pages/nursePracticeACT.aspx.

**Some clinical agencies require a background check of students before doing clinical rotation at their facility. If the clinical agency declines a student from attending based upon their background check, the School of Nursing will attempt to make accommodations, however, if unsuccessful, the student will not be allowed to progress in the program.
