Exclusionary Criteria for Clinical Placement

To ensure the safety of all patients for whom our allied health students provide care, all allied health students over the age of 18 will be required to complete the criminal background check. If a student is found guilty of any felony crime against a person, the student must meet with the appropriate program director to determine the student’s ability to participate in clinical placement. Students who are unable to complete the clinical component of their respective program will be withdrawn from the program.

The following list of felony crimes against persons will prevent clinical placement for any allied health student: ksbn.kansas.gov/self-reporting-legal/

If you have questions about the conviction or disciplinary action requirements, please contact the Kansas State Board of Nursing legal department at: 785-296-4325.
