Nursing is a profession which provides health care
to individuals of all ages. Nursing encompasses
many activities including health promotion, health
maintenance, health care during illness and injury
and rehabilitation. Nurses apply knowledge from the
biological, physical, behavioral and nursing sciences
to care for clients in varied settings. The purpose of
the San Diego City College Nursing program is to

Directed Clinical Practice Requirement
Students accepted into this program will be required to successfully complete Directed Clinical Practice/clinically-based courses held in health care facilities.These facilities require background checks and urine drug screening as a condition of placement.
Refusal to submit to a background check, or failure to meet clearance criteria established by the healthcare facility, may prevent placement in the Directed Clinical Practice/clinically-based course and thus, it may not be possible to successfully progress in or complete the program.
Health care facilities also require adherence to strict standards of conduct. Facilities may refuse educational access to any person who does not adhere to the facility’s standards of safety, health and ethical behavior. This may be cause for removal from the program.
