Nursing Program: Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) and Sexual Offender Record Information (SORI)
As a prerequisite for a clinical placement in the nursing program, all students must undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) and a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check. These checks are required due to potential unsupervised contact with children, the disabled, or the elderly during a clinical experience. Students found to have certain criminal convictions or pending criminal actions will be presumed ineligible for clinical placement. The College is authorized by the Commonwealth’s Criminal History Systems Board, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 167-178B, to access CORI records. The College shall refer to regulations issued by the Commonwealth’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services, 101 Code of Massachusetts Regulations 15.00-15.16, as guidance when assessing student CORI records. Sex Offender checks shall be performed pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 178C-178P.
For additional information regarding the College's CORI/SORI check process, please contact the Dean of Enrollment Management and Advising Services.
