Criminal background reports are processed through the American Databank/Complio system.
Any past criminal convictions, regardless of year, must be disclosed during the application process. Convictions are reviewed on an individual basis and must be vetted by the college for admission.
Note that admission is contingent upon the University of Colorado College of Nursing being able to place students in clinical rotations at healthcare agencies. If criminal history or a pending criminal charge prohibits the possibility of clinical placements, admission will be rescinded/denied.
Prospective students who have criminal convictions (or pending criminal activity) are encouraged to contact an Admissions representative prior to submitting an application.
Application for nursing licensure requires all criminal convictions be reported in the application process. The State Board of Nursing approves licensure for individuals with a criminal charge on an individual basis.
