Retention Criteria

Criteria for retention are:
  1. All cognates must be completed before junior (intermediate) year.
  2. A "C" grade or better in each nursing course completed.
  3. A "C" grade or better in each cognate course.

Students in nursing must achieve a grade of C or better in all required nursing courses. One course in nursing may be repeated once. A student who receives two grades of less than C in required courses in nursing will be dismissed from the program.

If a student's performance in the practicum is considered to be unsatisfactory at any time during the practicum, the student will be notified with a written warning notice.

The faculty reserves the right to require withdrawal or dismissal from the Nursing Program of a student who gives evidence, academically or personally, of inability to carry out professional responsibilities in nursing. Any student dismissed from the program may appeal to the appropriate committee. For further information or clarification contact the Dean of the School of Nursing.
