Students must obtain a Police Information Check with Vulnerable Sector Clearance (PIC) to participate in clinical courses. Please present your original PIC at the Nursing office (H206).
If your PIC is unclear, clinical agencies will review your documents to determine if you can participate in clinical experiences at their site. If your PIC is unclear you must notify the Clinical Placement Coordinator immediately so that the review process can be started.
Clinical placement sites that are a part of Alberta Health Services will honour a student's initial Police Information Check for the duration of your program. Clinical placements with other organizations may require a new PIC, dated within 90 days of the start of your clinical course.
If you have any breaks in your nursing program, for any reason, you will need to submit a new Police Information Check with Vulnerable Sector Clearance prior to restarting the nursing program.
Ensure you familiarize yourself with the requirements and process, including fees, identification to bring, and processing times in order to meet this requirement in an expedient manner. Fees are the responsibility of the student and processing times vary depending on the volume of requests.
Students who are under the age of 18 are not able to obtain a PIC and should wait until they turn 18 to complete this requirement.
MyCRC.ca police information checks are not accepted.
