Background Study Requirement
Minnesota State Law requires that any person who provides services that involve direct contact with patients and residents in a healthcare facility licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health have a background study conducted by the state. An individual who is disqualified from having direct patient contact as a result of the background study will not be permitted to participate in clinical rotations. Failure to participate in a clinical rotation required by the academic program could result in ineligibility to qualify for a degree in that program. You are responsible for maintaining a copy of your background check clearance and providing it to your clinical site if requested. A background study fee may be assessed to your student account.
