Following the receipt of an unsatisfactory grade of C -or below (graded courses) or a U (a non graded course) for any Nursing course, the student will receive a letter via mail notifying her/him of this unsatisfactory grade with a reminder that one more unsatisfactory grade of C-/U or below in any Nursing course will result in a dismissal from the Program. The only appeal to dismissal for unsatisfactory grades as defined is if one of the unsatisfactory grades meets the grounds for a grade appeal. In that case students should follow the grade appeal process as noted in the Policies and Procedures section of this catalog.
Application for Licensure Students seeking an RN license must apply to the Board of Registered Nursing for such a license. It is the student’s responsibility to keep current on the laws pertaining to the practice of registered nursing, as these laws are subject to change. Students should submit the Application for Licensure by Examination at least four to six months before their graduation date. All requests for transcript forms must be signed after the completion/ graduation date. All first time applicants are required to submit fingerprints with the application.
The Board requires applicants to take an examination containing objective multiple-choice questions administered by computer. The number of questions may vary from a minimum of 75 to a maximum of 265. The standard testing time for such examinations is a maximum of six hours.
