Criminal History Records Checks
(Commonly known as background checks)

In 2006, House Bill 1318 and Senate Bill 769 were passed requiring criminal history records checks. Criminal history records checks will be required of all new RN and LPN applicants and all CNA applicants after January 2, 2007. In addition, a selected population of RN, LPN and CNA renewal will be required to complete a CHRC to renew an existing license or certification.
