Progression Policy

All clinical nursing (NUR) students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better in order to remain the nursing program. Students who pass a nursing course, but whose overall (cumulative) GPA falls below 2.0 or does not complete the non-nursing prerequisite course may not advance to the next semester. Non-nursing course grades are computed into the cumulative GPA every semester.

The clinical laboratory is an integral part of the clinical nursing sequence. Clinical nursing students must also PASS the clinical laboratory component of the course (P) and attain a cumulative grade of “C” (73-76) on course departmental examinations.

Students must pass both clinical and classroom components. Failure to pass in either area constitutes a failure in the course. Students who earn an “NC” grade (excluding Nursing 112) may be eligible to repeat the course the following semester depending upon the availability of seats and the students’ cumulative GPA.
