Nursing (LPN to ADN) Progression Standards


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Nursing LPN to ADN Option, A.A.S.  

 

Failure to meet progression standards will result in suspension from the program.

  • The student will maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in general education courses and nursing courses combined.
  • The student will successfully complete all components of a nursing program course (theory and clinical) to pass the course. Failing the clinical component results in a course grade of “F” regardless of the time in the semester, and the student is ineligible to receive a “W” or “WA”.
  • The student will sequentially complete (without interruption) the nursing program courses over 3 semesters.
  • The general education courses and nursing program courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher. Grades from all institutions are subject to this policy.
  • A grade less than a “C”, a withdrawal (“W”, “WA”, or “WF”), failure to complete a pre- or co-requisite course, or failure to progress in the program will be considered as one semester attempt to complete nursing program courses.
  • The student may attempt each NUR course no more than 2 times. If the student is unsuccessful after the second attempt for a course, the student will not be able to progress in the program and may reapply for admission beginning with the first nursing course (NUR 201 ).
  • The student may apply for readmission to repeat NUR 201  and NUR courses, based on space availability, as long as the nursing program is completed in 4 semesters and the student has not been unsuccessful in the same course twice. Any student unable to complete the program in 4 semesters may apply for admission beginning with the first nursing course (NUR 101 /NUR 106 ).
  • The student will maintain current Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Provider certification through the American Heart Association. Online certification/recertification is not accepted.
  • The student will maintain current documentation of health status according to program requirements.
