2014-15 ADN Curriculum Checklist -- to be used as as guide.  Although your academic advisor can provide guidance, you are ultimately responsible for selecting courses that meet a programís graduation requirements.

Background Checks
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 that if 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 statement of understanding.

All ADN students are required to complete a Wisconsin Caregiver Background Check and a National Criminal Background Check through Certified Background Checks.  In additional to that, if you are a New Richmond or Superior student, you are also required to complete a Minnesota Caregiver Background Check.  Each form will indicate a due date and to whom the paperwork should be sent.
