Department of Nursing Remediation Process
Remediation may be considered when a nursing student:
The purpose of remediation is to identify, remediate, and counsel those individuals who exhibit characteristics associated with difficulties in their Nursing Program as early as possible.
Description of the Process:
Any nursing student who fails to meet the programmatic expectations and requirements is in jeopardy of not completing the Nursing Program. In the event of a referral, an “Action Plan” for remediation to determine the student's readiness to remain in the Nursing program will be developed by a committee consisting of the student’s clinical or classroom faculty (as appropriate), Department Chair, and assigned academic advisor.
Referral forms will be completed by the referring instructor and will be submitted to the Chairperson. The referring instructor will notify the student of the referral and then the student may contact the Chairperson for further instruction or information.
This committee will meet and develop a personalized plan to address and remediate those areas identified as weaknesses exhibited by the student during clinical and/or classroom activities. A formal plan will be developed and the student will be required to attend the second meeting (held approximately within a week of the initial meeting) to read, review, and sign the plan to demonstrate that he/she understands the plan and agrees to follow it.
A referral may delay the student’s progression through the Program. Plans are individualized for each student and may include, but will not be limited to, the following examples:
-referral to the Student Learning Center
-auditing classes in whole or in part
-repeating the classroom and clinical courses where the weaknesses were identified in a subsequent semester after the remediation plan is met successfully.
Any other activities deemed necessary to the remediation efforts of the individual student based on recommendation of the student’s committee
Failure to follow and successfully complete the prescribed remediation plan developed for the referred student will result in the student’s inability to continue in the Nursing Program at SUNY Brockport.
Remediation is a system of support for the candidate, and is not a disciplinary action. The sole purpose of this program and committee is to help struggling candidates with remediation efforts designed at assisting them to become better equipped to be successful nurses. Referrals may be made for any significant areas of weaknesses to include professional competencies and behaviors. The faculty seeks to ensure that each student successfully completes our program, and is ready to enter the profession having assimilated all knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential for the future nurse.
Based on the professional judgment of Department of Nursing faculty, there are rare occasions when a nursing student is dismissed from the nursing program without remediation. See the Nursing Student Handbook for further clarification. These situations occur for reasons such as the following examples:
The decision for remediation is always made collaboratively with careful examination of the individual situation and circumstances. It requires and is given the utmost care, thought and professional consideration. It involves input from the nursing student, nursing faculty, and Department Chairperson. It is always made in the best interest of the student and the potential patients of the student. It adheres strictly to Departmental Program standards.
