Once a candidate is accepted into the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools and the candidate confirms their attendance to the School, they will require an annual Criminal Background Check.
The State of New Jersey Professional Responsibility and Reporting Enhancement Act (N.J.S.A. 18A:6-7.1 et. seq.) requires all health care professionals to have a criminal history record background check. Therefore, in order to complete your educational program at JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools, the performance of a completed criminal background check is required prior to a student's first clinical course, and annually thereafter, and/or before moving into the School Residence. The Schools engage the services of a consumer-reporting agency to conduct this background check. Authorization to conduct this background check and results deemed favorable by JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools and/or clinical facilities are conditions for continued enrollment.
Please note the fee for the criminal background check will be billed on the appropriate semester invoice. The fee will cover charges for annual background checks. A release form will be collected from all new clinical students.
