Bachelor of Nursing (BSN) :: Background Check Requirement
Required Background Check
Background checks are required to protect and promote the welfare of the people of Texas by ensuring each person holding a nursing license is competent to practice safely. To achieve this, the Texas Board of Nursing (TBON) requires that newly admitted nursing students complete fingerprinting and a criminal background check to gain clearance prior to enrollment.
An individual enrolled or planning to enroll in Texas A&M University-Commerce Department of Nursing who has reason to believe he or she may be ineligible for the RN License may petition the Texas Board of Nursing for a declaratory order as to the person’s eligibility. Neither the University nor its faculty can answer this question for a person. The Texas Board of Nursing Declaratory Order Petition form can be found here. TBON may be reached at: 333 Guadalupe #3-460, Austin, TX 78701, (512) 305-7400.
