Progression in the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing
A student’s progression through the nursing program requires achieving appropriate grades in courses and retaining approval by the nursing faculty that the student is qualified in all relevant respects to practice nursing safely and competently. Students may not be admitted to or progress in the nursing major if they are on academic probation with the university.
Students must earn a grade of C or better in PRACTICUM 1 (NURS 301), FOUNDATIONAL NURSING THEORY (NURS 304), INTRODUCTION TO PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE (NURS 314), and HEALTH ASSESSMENT, PATHOPHYSIOLOGY AND Pharmacology in Nursing I (NURS 324) to progress to PRACTICUM 2 (NURS 334), HEALTH MANAGEMENT I (NURS 344), NURSING CARE OF COMMUNITIES AND POPULATIONS (NURS 404), and HEALTH ASSESSMENT, PATHOPHYSIOLOGY AND PHARMACOLOGY IN NURSING II (NURS 424).
Students must earn a grade of C or better in PRACTICUM 2 (NURS 334), HEALTH MANAGEMENT I (NURS 344), NURSING CARE OF COMMUNITIES AND POPULATIONS (NURS 404), and HEALTH ASSESSMENT, PATHOPHYSIOLOGY AND PHARMACOLOGY IN NURSING II (NURS 424) to progress to PRACTICUM 3 (NURS 434), NURSING CARE OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES PHARMACOLOGY IN NURSING II (NURS 444), and HEALTH MANAGEMENT II (NURS 454).
Students must earn a grade of C or better in PRACTICUM 3 (NURS 434), NURSING CARE OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES PHARMACOLOGY IN NURSING II (NURS 444), and HEALTH MANAGEMENT II (NURS 454) to progress to EVIDENCE-BASED NURSING CAPSTONE (NURS 464), PRACTICUM 4 (NURS 474), and SUSTAINABLE NURSING LEADERSHIP (NURS 484).
Progression is contingent upon satisfactory completion of prescribed prerequisites. A grade of “incomplete” in any prerequisite course will make the student ineligible for enrollment in succeeding courses until the “incomplete” is converted to a satisfactory passing grade.
Any student earning a grade of C- or below in a required nursing course on two separate occasions, whether as a second grade of C- or below upon repeating a required nursing course, or a grade of C- or below in two different required nursing courses, will be dismissed from the nursing major.
