Nursing Program Progression

Program Progression

Students progress through the program by earning a grade of "C" or better in all upper division nursing support and nursing courses. In combined theory and field experience courses, a passing grade of "C" or better in each component must be received in order to pass the course. In the case of unethical, illegal or unprofessional behavior, or violations found in the Unsafe Nursing Practice Policy, the Admission and Retention Promotion Committee will investigate, impose any sanctions, and determine retention in the program. Such violations may also be subject to disciplinary actions under the University Conduct Code and/or relevant Nurse Practice Act.

Graduation is dependent on attaining all hours required by the degree and the University, all minimum proficiencies required by the University, and a graduation/retention grade point average of 2.0 or better. Any elective hours must be completed by graduation.

Grades for lecture and field experience requirements are consistent with the University policies and follow a standard scale of: A (90-100), B (80-89), C (70-79), D (60-69), and F (0-59). Course graded materials and activities include, but are not limited to, scholarly papers, presentations, reports, exams, class participation, field experience performance, and evaluations.

Grievance mechanisms for academic appeals usually begin with the instructor, and subsequently may involve the program chair, college dean, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and finally, the University President. Grievances for other concerns may be referred to the University's student grievance committee for resolution.

The Nursing Student Handbook contains additional information specific to nursing students admitted to the program. Any student with a disability whose condition prohibits achievement of any admission, promotion, or retention requirement may petition for waiver.
