The RCMP has added additional safe-guards for the vulnerable sector enhanced screening process. Some of you may be asked to arrange a fingerprinting screen when you receive your initial response to the police clearance. If you are in this situation, please bring your most recent last police clearance and the documentation showing that you are going through this fingerprinting process to show your clinical instructor on the first day of your clinical course. This fingerprinting process may take an additional several weeks. For first year students: If you are selected for fingerprinting following your police clearance and do not have previous police clearance, please bring the documentation showing that you are going through this fingerprinting process to show your clinical instructor on the first day of your clinical course.
The hospitals (Windsor Regional Hospital and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital) are accepting previous police clearances in the interim as long as documentation is shown that the student is going through the fingerprinting process. Individual community agencies will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the Faculty of Nursing.
