Admission Considerations
CCC endorses the concepts of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all, regardless of color, race, religion, gender, age, national origin, physical handicap, place of birth, marital status, or liability for military service.

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO), the primary accreditating body for our clinical agencies, has mandated Criminal History Background Checks for all individuals engaged in patient care. If the criminal background check prohibits clinical placement, the student will be unable to attend the program.

Students must be able to perform the duties and functions of a nurse.

Upon Acceptance to the Nursing Program and Prior to Enrollment students must provide proof of malpractice insurance, health insurance, certification in Basic Life Support through the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross, a completed negative Criminal History Background Check, and a complete health and immunization record and a negative urine drug test.
