BCI Fingerprinting and Background Check Information
Effective Jan. 12, 2013, the BCI process may begin no sooner than six months prior to entry into a health care or nursing program and no later than the first day of program entry. (Program entry is defined as a student’s first day of program classes in which the student begins their program.)
BCI fingerprinting and background check is required before being admitted into the ACCESS track of the nursing program. The first course in the ACCESS Track is NURS 1260 LPN to RN Transitions II. Completing this step can ONLY be done through your Complio account created in step two.
The process for students planning to register for NURS 1260 LPN to RN Transitions II must begin within 6 months of your anticipated NURS 1260 LPN to RN Transitions II start date. Failure to meet all required objectives successfully can delay entry into the nursing program.
If you have previously started a Complio account and/or Castlebranch account OR started a BCI background check, please email NursingCompliance@tri-c.edu BEFORE completing this step.
The cost of the background check and fingerprinting is included in the cost to create a Complio account. If a second BCI background check and/or fingerprinting is required, an additional fee will be incurred.
Please refer to the table below for time frames associated completing all of the American Data Bank - Complio & LPN to RN Mobility Exam requirements.
All items must be marked as APPROVED; items marked as pending or rejected will cause your account to be considered incomplete.
Note: results can take 4-6 weeks to be returned and marked as approved. It is recommended that students begin the BCI and Background Check process at least 4 weeks prior to the established deadlines.
|NURS 1260 Start||Health Requirements and BCI - Completed/Approved Not Pending||LPN to RN Mobility Exam Due Date|

Failure to comply with these dates may result in the need to complete an additional BCI check at your expense and delay admission into the nursing program.
