Important Points
  • Students entering the nursing program may only have two opportunities to successfully complete Anatomy and Physiology I and/or II with a “C” grade or better. Students who have taken Anatomy and Physiology I or II more than twice will not be permitted to enter or continue in the nursing program.
  • Prior to entrance into NUR 1510, students are required to present certification of completion of a course in Basic Life Support that includes infant, child, and adult CPR and AED. Students must present proof of required criminal background checks and receive health center clearance to participate in clinical experiences.
  • BIO 2510: Anatomy and Physiology I must be completed with a minimum grade of “C” prior to taking NUR 1520. Students in NUR 1510 may not progress to NUR 1520 with a grade lower than a “C.” Students receiving a grade lower than a “C” in either BIO 2510 or NUR 1510 will be administratively dropped from the nursing program and will be required to reapply for admission.
  • BIO 2520: Anatomy and Physiology II must be completed with a minimum grade of “C” prior to taking NUR 2510. Students in NUR 1520 may not progress to NUR 2510 with a grade lower than a “C.” Students receiving a grade lower than a “C” in either BIO 2520 or NUR 1520 will be administratively dropped from the nursing program and will be required to reapply for admission.
  • A minimum grade of C is required in each nursing core course. A student will be permitted to repeat one nursing core course (NUR 1510, NUR 1520, NUR 2510, and NUR 2520) one time. Should the student be unsuccessful in repeating any nursing core course, he/she would be ineligible to continue in the nursing program. Students who are unsuccessful in more than one nursing core course and have already repeated one core course will not be eligible to repeat a second nursing core course. Withdrawal from a core nursing course after the first 30 calendar days will be considered a failure of the course for reapplication purposes. In case of illness or other extreme circumstances, the faculty may consider a one-time exception. A student wishing to be considered for a waiver to the two course limit should obtain letters of support from two faculty members, at least one of which must be from a nursing faculty member and submit them to the nursing program committee for consideration.
