Requirements for Clinical
MCC relies on various clinical placement agencies to provide clinical experiences for our students. These sites have several requirements so once a student is accepted to the Registered Nurse program, they are required to have a drug screen and background check. This information is included in the acceptance packet. In addition, the student will be required to submit the following:
- Evidence of measles, mumps, rubella, and TDAP immunizations
