academic advisor can provide guidance, you are ultimately responsible for
selecting courses that meet a programís graduation requirements.
The clinical agencies that host
the WITC ADN students for clinical courses
have significantly increased their demands for background check scrutiny
over the past several years. We
want to ensure students understand prior to the start of the program
there are no clinical agencies that will accept the student based on the
background check history, the student must be excused from the ADN
program, regardless of the studentís academic standing.
This is explained in further detail in the
background check disclosure.
All ADN students are required to
complete a Wisconsin Caregiver Background Check and a National Criminal
Background Check through CastleBranch (Ashland,
Superior). In addition, if you are a New Richmond or Superior student,
you are also required to complete a
Minnesota Caregiver Background Check. The steps and documentation
to complete these background checks will be covered in depth during program
Your instructor will indicate a due date and to whom the paperwork should be sent.
After background checks are completed, students are expected to
self-report any changes.
