DEPARTMENT OF NURSING READMISSION POLICY
The full Faculty of the Department of Nursing makes readmission decisions. The Department reserves the right to refuse readmission to the nursing program. A student may be readmitted, at the department's discretion, after having failed a course. However, a student who fails a course is at serious risk for not being readmitted and losing his/her previous position in the nursing department. Readmission is on a competitive basis. If a student fails either component (didactic or clinical) in a nursing course and is readmitted, both courses must be repeated successfully. If a student fails both clinical and didactic in the same nursing course he/she may be considered for readmission if these are the first course failures within the nursing major.
If a student is readmitted and fails the course he/she is repeating or any other course within the nursing major, the student will not be considered for readmission again.
Those applying for readmission to the nursing program must re-apply to the nursing department and meet the current application deadline. Students who have been dismissed from the Nursing major will have conditions and requirements of readmission spelled out in a contract described in their letter of re-admission. The time frame to fulfill any conditions will also be included in this letter.
Failure to Provide Safe Care: Students will not be considered for readmission to the major if they were dismissed for failing to provide safe care.
Academic Dishonesty: A student who is dismissed from the program for academic dishonesty will not be considered for readmission to the major.
