After you have registered and been approved, Kennesaw State University will send Form A (temporary license request) to the GBN. This will notify them that you are enrolled in our course.

Criminal Background Check/Drug Screening (required for clinical access) must be conducted by vendor, designated by the WellStar College RN Refresher Program. Dismissal from the program may result if you are not capable of meeting clinical agency requirements for criminal background check and/or are found to have a positive drug screen. Those with background issues need to contact us prior to registration for advisement on obtaining required temporary license. Previous criminal conviction may prevent admission into the course.
