Question about criminal backround check

Posted

I was wondering, the backround check that the BON uses to determine if they will let you sit for the NCLEX, is it a fingerprint backround check or the non-fingerprint variety?

Id like to order a backround check of myself to see whats on their and the state police asked me if I wanted the fingerprint kind done vs the non-fingerprint kind.

Thanks!

Far as I know fingerprints are required with the application to test, at least in my state.

You would have to contact your BON for the answer, but i think it's pretty safe to assume they will require fingerprints

IMHO - if you have to wonder what's on your background check - you have cause to be worried.

In Pennsylvania no fingerprint background check. It should also tell you when you go to pay for the NCLEX and if you need an ATT there is information, in detail as to what they need.

Maybe stick with messaging boards as it is a little easier to keep your aliases straight. I'm not too sure you're ready for the big leagues- deceiving the BON.
