You do not need to disclose information about minor traffic violations. However, you must disclose information if the traffic offense involved illegal drugs or alcohol or if any person was killed or hospitalized as a result of an accident in which you were charged for a traffic violation. You do not need to disclose information regarding any criminal offense record which has been expunged according to applicable law. You must disclose information if charges were dropped or not prosecuted because you were granted any type of pretrial diversion. Failure to disclose this information may result in a revocation of admission.

The Florida Board of Nursing requires the disclosure of conviction records for misdemeanors and/or felonies; therefore, this information is required at the time of admission.

I understand that providing false information regarding my criminal history, failing to disclose requested information regarding my criminal history, or not successfully passing any required criminal history check may result in my inability to progress through the UWF Department of Nursing program.

If at any time during the course of my participation in the RN to BSN program I am either arrested, charged, or convicted, I understand and agree that I must disclose such an event to the Program Coordinator or Department Chair in writing regardless of the nature or the seriousness of the offense for which I am arrested, charged, or convicted no later than 48 hours after such an event. Failure to do so may result in my dismissal from the program.
