Nursing Program Licensure Procedures

Eligibility for admission to and continued enrollment in the Nursing programs are conditional on an applicant’s eligibility for licensure by the Maryland Board of Nursing. Under Maryland law, the Maryland Board of Nursing may deny a license to any applicant for reasons that include, but are not limited to, an applicant’s conviction or pleading guilty or nolo contendere to a felony or to a crime involving moral turpitude, whether or not any appeal or other proceeding is pending to have the conviction or plea set aside.

If an applicant for admission or an enrolled student has an unexpunged conviction or is convicted at any time prior to admission or enrollment into the Nursing programs or during participation in the Nursing course sequence, the applicant or enrolled student must immediately notify the Nursing Department Chair. Failure to disclose an arrest or conviction may result in ineligibility for admission to or suspension or termination from Nursing programs.
