Attention to ECG Telemetry Students
Please be aware that students accepted to the program at Grossmont College are required to undergo a background check and a urine drug screening test before starting the program or being placed at a clinical site. We expect the cost of these procedures may be  $70 - $120. The student will be responsible for paying these fees.

It should be noted that failure to pass either or both of these procedures may interfere with clinical placement and / or acceptance of the student into his / her program.  It is the responsibility of the student to contact the Program Coordinator prior to applying to discuss individual circumstances.

Background Check/Drug Screen

The day of your urine drug test, DO NOT drink more than 8 oz. of any liquid. If you drink an excessive amount of liquid prior to conducting your urine drug screen, the results will be diluted and/or altered and therefore incomplete. If your drug screen results come back dilute, you will not be able to be placed in clinical settings therefore, you will be ineligible to enter the EKG program.

Program Cost
