Progression Standards - After Program Entry
Failure to meet progression standards results in suspension from the program. After admission, students:
- Must maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA on program curriculum courses in order to progress.
- Must earn a minimum of "C" or higher in each required program curriculum course. Based on availability of space, students may retake program curriculum courses completed with less than a "C" one time only.
- Must successfully complete all components of a course(theory, clinical, drug calculation proficiency, and pharmacology proficiency tests) in order to pass the course. Students who fail to complete a component will receive a grade of "F" for the course regardless of the time in the semester and are not eligible to receive a "W" or "WA" through the withdrawal process.
- Must complete all course requirements within three years of the starting date of the first nursing course(NUR106/NUR201).
- Are limited to two attempts at successful completion of any nursing program curriculum course. A grade of "F" or a withdrawal ("W" or "WA") in a nursing program curriculum course will count as one attempt to complete the program and result in suspension from the program.
- Students must maintain current CPR (Health Care Provider) and annual tuberculin skin test (PPD) to remain in the program. Online CPR (Health Care Provider) certification/recertification will not be accepted.
