Unless otherwise specified, students in the Compressed Time Frame BScN program will adhere to the Academic Policies set out in the section entitled ACADEMIC POLICIES: Basic Nursing/Registered Nurse Programs.
Students may proceed to the next term of their program if the following conditions are met:
Clinical Course Failures
1. Satisfactory clinical performance
2. Passing grade of at least 65% in each Nursing course
Satisfactory performance in all Domains of Practice must be achieved in order to complete a rotation successfully. In the event of a failed rotation, all competencies within the five Domains of Practice must be met satisfactorily by the end of the course in order to progress.
If a student fails a clinical course, the case will be reviewed on an individual basis by the clinical instructor, course/year coordinator and undergraduate program Chair. The student will be informed in writing of the decision regarding his/her progress and any conditions or requirements pertaining to that decision.
Students are allowed a total of two course (2.0 FCE) failures throughout the program. The failures can be one clinical and one non-clinical course, or two non-clinical courses. In the event that a student fails a clinical course, the student may be required to repeat the co-requisite theory course.
When a student is repeating a full term, no course failures will be allowed. In order to progress, failed nursing courses must be repeated successfully.
The final grade for most nursing theory courses is based upon individual assignments, group projects, and written examinations. Final examination papers will not be returned to students. Clinical Courses (e.g., Nursing 1102W
, 4410X) will receive a grade of pass/fail.
