Registered Nursing (Associate in Science)

Licensure

Upon completion of any of the Associate degree nursing options, graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurse practice (NCLEX-RN). Final determination of the applicant’s ability to sit for the licensing examination and to become licensed to practice in Florida is made by the Board of Nursing. Miami Dade College cannot assure licensure.

Required Disclosures

Individuals who have been convicted of a felony are not eligible for licensure as a Registered Nurse until their civil rights have been restored. Any applicant who has an arrest record must fully disclose all information at the time of application for licensure to:

Florida Board of Nursing
4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin C02
Tallahassee, FL 32399-3252

 

All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent https://ibrinc.com/mdc/select and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
