NURSING DEPARTMENT

CRITERIA FOR RETENTION IN THE NURSING PROGRAM

       

 

EFFECTIVE FALL 2012

Criteria for retention in the Nursing Program mandates that students:

  1. Earn a minimum of a “C” grade in every required Nursing and co-requisite course. Students who achieve a C- grade in a required nursing course may apply to repeat the course one time only in the semester immediately following, subject to space availability. The minimum grade fro Clinical courses that are repeated is a "B." The online "Intent to Return to Nursing Course" must be completed and include a plan for success that demonstrates significant changes in how they will approach the course when repeated. Only one required nursing course may be repeated. A grade of less that a "C" in a second nursing course will cause the student to be dismissed from the program.

  2. Students who enter Nursing 18 MUST complete the Nursing Program within four years from the date of entry into this course. Any student who has not attended required nursing courses for two or more consecutive semesters cannot be readmitted into the Nursing Program unless qualifying examinations have been passed in the required nursing courses previously successfully completed. Qualifying examinations may be taken only once.
