Sumner College Catalog

Material Circumstance that May Adversely Impact an Applicant’s Ability to Complete a Distance Education Program The Practical Nursing and Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs are delivered in a blended format that includes both distance education courses and residential courses that are taught on-campus in the state that Sumner College is physically located. Students must be able to attend courses at the physical location to progress through the program. Students should research whether the programs offered at Sumner College meet their state’s profession requirements. A student’s physical location is determined at the time of application based on information provided by the student. Licensure and Certification

“The teachers are there supporting you, they are interested in your success and that makes a huge difference in motivation ” ~Kristen W. Sumner Graduate

Graduates of the Practical Nursing program may apply to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN), and graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing may apply to sit for the National Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). State Authorization Sumner College has not determined if any of the programs fulfill the educational requirements for specific professional licensure or certification required for employment in the field outside the states of Oregon. It is recommended that students who are located in or plan to relocate to a state apart from the physical campus offering the program research any certification or employment requirements for their intended state. Additional Program Requirements It is a policy of Sumner College to ensure that enrolling students are aware of the potential effect and consequence of past criminal behaviors. Prospective students may be denied admission based on their criminal background. A criminal background may affect the student’s ability to obtain licensure. Please click the link below to review the requirements for licensure for the state of Oregon: How a Criminal History Can Affect The Licensure Process Sumner College is required to perform a background check on all nursing students prior to a student being assigned to a clinical site. The results of that background check will be made available to the clinical site. Pending or prior criminal charges may result in the student being unable to be assigned to a clinical facility. Students with prior criminal charges may not be granted a license even if he/she passes the NCLEX or AAMA exam. If you have a prior conviction, please talk to the admissions department about your background prior to enrolling in any program. Clinical facilities require the school to follow drug screening requirements, which may include random testing, prior to being assigned to a clinical facility. Results are on a pass/fail basis. Students who fail the drug screening may be dismissed from the college. Failure to complete or participate in any required Drug agency screening will result in the nursing student being withdrawn from the program. In the event a student fails, they may appeal if he/she feels it was a false positive. All students are responsible for meeting the requirements set forth in the college catalog. Right to Rescind Policy A disciplinary matter or criminal conviction, whether occurring prior to the time of application, while the application is under review, or after the admission decision has been made, may affect the College’s decisions regarding admission, or enrollment. Sumner College reserves the right to rescind admission or enrollment if a circumstance or event arises. Additionally, is an application misrepresents any information during the admissions or enrollment process acceptance may be rescinded at the College’s discretion. The Oregon State Board of Nursing may deny nursing licensure to persons with criminal arrest or conviction histories.
