Note: Students who fail a core prerequisite course in a nursing sequence may not proceed to the next course in the sequence without repeating the failed course. In order to continue in the Nursing major, students must receive minimum grades of “C” in all required nursing courses. Only one failed required nursing course is repeatable only once by students who have received a “D” or less. Students who fail a second required nursing course in the sequence may not repeat that course and may not continue in the major. This policy applies even though a grade appeal is in progress.
Leave of Absence Policy and Reserved Placement in a Clinical Course
A reserved placement in a clinical/field course will be held for the student for only one year from the date of the leave of absence. The School of Nursing cannot guarantee the placement for any longer period of time. It is the responsibility of the student to submit to the undergraduate program director a letter of intent, one semester prior to returning to the program and enrolling in the course (April 1 for a fall course). Students who fail to follow this procedure release the School of Nursing from reserving a clinical/field placement in a course for the student.
