About this course
The curriculum blends general education courses with nursing courses to provide a sound theoretical and experiential background for nursing practice. Students’ complete faculty led clinical rotations at healthcare affiliates throughout the nursing component of the program. These healthcare affiliates typically require background checks to determine if students have disqualifying criminal convictions, pending criminal charges and/or certain other experience. Students who cannot satisfy such a review cannot be placed clinically and will be unable to complete the program.
Nursing majors must follow the course sequences and should note that a minimum grade of C (with a satisfactory clinical grade) in each nursing course is required in order to progress from one nursing course to another. Students must adhere to the nursing program attendance requirements or it may result in dismissal from the program. Students may be allowed to repeat one nursing course by petitioning full faculty and dependent on full faculty vote and available space within course. Completion of all Nursing courses with a grade of C or better and a minimum GPA of 2.00 is required to graduate.
