Academic Standards for Progression
The following requirements must be met in order to progress in the nursing program:
1. Maintain a cumulative grade point average of C (2.0) or higher.
2. Achieve a grade of C or higher in each nursing course before proceeding to the next nursing course.
3. Receive a P (pass) grade on the laboratory or clinical component of each nursing course that has either laboratory or clinical experience. A grade of F (fail) in any laboratory or clinical component will result in an F for the course.
4. Only one nursing course may be repeated one time during progression through the nursing program.
5. Maintain current CPR certification, TB (or x-ray) testing, evidence of Hepatitis B vaccination, health insurance, and malpractice insurance while enrolled in the nursing program.
6. Adhere to all policies of the University, Department of Nursing, and clinical agencies.
Because of the nature of nursing, the nursing faculty reserves the right
to counsel, suspend or dismiss those students who, in their judgment,
do not satisfy the requirements of scholarship, health and personal suitability
for nursing and national licensure.
