Vers. 2.5 (electronic), last updated on 7/24//2017 Overview of the Criminal Background Check Process Dear License Applicant: This Criminal Background Check Packet has been sent to you because you have applied for licensure with one of Minnesota’s Health Licensing Boards. Minnesota law and Board policy now require that all applicants must complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check. See Minn. Stat. § 214.075. The Minnesota Health Licensing Boards have cooperatively established a Criminal Background Check Program to help you efficiently complete this requirement. Included in this packet are “ Instructions For Getting Fingerprints Taken ” and a Mailing Checklist . Please direct any questions you have about the background check process to Criminal Background Check Program staff, not the Boards. To complete the background check, you must do the following: 1. Submit your application and pay all fees to the Board. The background check fee is included in this payment. 2. Complete Forms 1–3 . (attached) *** Note: You must sign Form 3 in the presence of the law enforcement employee or CBC staff taking your fingerprints; law enforcement or CBC staff must then complete the bottom portion of Form 3 . *** 3. Have high quality fingerprints taken by either of the following: A law enforcement agency in any state or country; or The Minnesota Criminal Background Check Program *** Note: Fingerprints taken by private companies cannot be accepted for your CBC. Only fingerprints taken at a law enforcement agency are accepted. *** 4. If prints are taken at a law enforcement agency, you will mail a hard copy fingerprint card (FD-258) and Forms 1–3 to the Criminal Background Check Program at the address below. 5. If prints are taken at the Criminal Background Check Program, Forms 1–3 will be collected during fingerprinting. A hard copy fingerprint card is not needed in this instance. Your submissions will be forwarded to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). They will be checked for criminal conviction records and Predatory Offender Registration data. The results will be sent to the Board to evaluate your qualifications for licensure. The Board will contact you if additional information is needed. Important: High Quality Fingerprints Required The background check requires a set of high quality fingerprints. Poor quality prints will be rejected by the FBI, which requires you to start the background check process over again by providing new fingerprints. To avoid the weeks of delay that this causes, please see “ Important Tips to Improve Fingerprint Quality ” (attached). Prior Background Checks Cannot Be Used Again The Board is unable to use any previous background check you may have undergone for work, military, other licensing, or any other purpose. Federal law prohibits sharing fingerprint and criminal history information. You need to be fingerprinted again for the license you are currently seeking.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
