9  You will need to be screened for MRSA before you commence on your practice placements  Our clinical contracts also require us to check your status for common communicable diseases e.g. tuberculosis and hepatitis

10  You will be asked to declare any convictions, including traffic offences: clean slate does not apply  We will also ask you to authorise us to obtain a police check  The fact that you have a conviction will not necessarily stop you from enrolling  You will have to make a similar declaration when you apply to sit State Finals  The final decision on registration rests with the Nursing Council
