All applicants admitted to the Faculty of Nursing are required to provide a current Police Information Check (also referred to as a Security Clearance or Criminal Record Check) which must include a Vulnerable Sector Search.
In order to be considered “current”, the Police Information Check must be completed during the three months prior to admission.
June 1 – August 31 for Fall Admission
October 1 – December 31 for Winter Admission
If the Check results in a “not clear” determination or if a criminal record conviction is confirmed, admission to the Faculty may be retracted. An internal University appeal process is available to applicants who are refused admission for this reason.
Students may be required to produce a current PIC prior to the practicum experience to adhere to the student practicum agreements with our practice partners.
Subsequent to admission and at any time during the program, a student may be required to produce a current Police Information Check, the results of which could require their withdrawal from the program, in the sole discretion of the University. Students are obligated to inform the Faculty immediately of any change in status of their criminal record.
If you are charged or convicted of a criminal offense at any time during your enrollment in the program, you are required to inform the Faculty of Nursing Undergraduate Program Office immediately.
Students who are concerned about the presence of a criminal record should contact the Parole Board of Canada for information on receiving a Canadian Pardon/Record Suspension.
