Standards of Conduct and Accountability

The nursing student shall comply with legal, moral, and legislative standards that determine unacceptable behavior of the nurse and that may be cause for denial of a license to practice as a registered nurse, in accordance with the Alabama law regulating practice of registered and nursing as provided below.

The Alabama Board of Nursing may deny a license and/or temporary permit by examination or endorsement based on Alabama rule 610-X-8-.02. Examples of grounds for denial of a license include: .(1)Engaging in fraud, misrepresentation, deception, or concealment of a material fact in applying for or securing licensure or taking any examination required for licensure;(2) Failure to produce evidence of good moral character such as having a criminal history or pattern of illegal conduct or disregard for the law;(3)Any other reasons authorized by law.

Failure to comply with any of the Alabama Board of Nursing rules while in the nursing program constitutes grounds for dismissal from the program.

Completion of the nursing program does not guarantee licensure based on the Alabama Board of Nursing's regulations governing review of candidates for eligibility for initial and continuing licensure.
