Please note: Due to COVID-19, background checks are taking longer to process than normal. As a measure to control COVID-19's spread many courthouses have been closed, which delays access to information needed to complete some checks resulting in longer processing times.

We at ShiftMed appreciate your patience during this time and will update you throughout your background check processing.

For all Michigan Healthcare Professionals (CNA, LPN, RN) joining the ShiftMed team, see below for steps to complete your background check.

Background Check Steps:

  1. Once your TB Test, Annual Physical, Identification, and Professional License credentials are all verified by ShiftMed’s credentialing team, you will then be invited to complete your Background Check.

  2. You will receive an email invitation from ShiftMed with the required form to complete.

    1. See below for a picture of the email. You can search your inbox for the subject line: Signature requested on "Michigan Background Check Consent".

  3. You must complete this form in order to continue your Background Check process.

  4. Once this form has been completed, ShiftMed will process and verify your Background Check in the LARA website.

  5. If you have previously been fingerprinted, ShiftMed will then check LARA for your eligibility status and a positive result to satisfy your background check.

  6. If you have not previously been fingerprinted, ShiftMed will then reach out to you to schedule your fingerprinting appointment. You must connect with ShiftMed to schedule this appointment. Once ShiftMed is able to schedule this fingerprint, each healthcare professional will need to arrive at their appointment. Once the appointment is complete, ShiftMed will have access to the results in the next couple of business days.
