Criteria to enter into or progress within the nursing major were implemented to ensure patient safety and quality of care. Minimum criteria for admission to the nursing major and continued progression within it include:
Decisions affecting continued progression in the major after admission to it are made at the end of each semester. Students who are not meeting minimum criteria to either be admitted to or progress within the nursing program have the opportunity to submit a written petition to the Department of Nursing.
Completion of this form does not automatically mean you WILL be admitted into the program or allowed to progress. It does, however, allow you the opportunity to express your circumstances to the Department for consideration. Please pay attention to the details on this page. Forms submitted earlier or later than the allowed time frame will not be considered for review by the department.
