C-9 - Withdrawal from Nursing Courses

Target Group:  Basic BSN and RN-BSN Mobility Students

Policy Type:  Revision

Policy:

  1. Withdrawals (grade of W) from nursing courses will be issued to students wishing to withdraw from any or all courses in accordance with the University’s withdrawal policies and procedures.
  2. Students withdrawing from nursing course work must complete this work prior to progression in the program.
  3. Students who withdraw from the nursing major in the first semester must seek readmission to the program.  Readmission is subject to competitive review.
  4. Students withdrawing from required nursing course work will be considered out-of-sequence students.  Students who have failed to register for each sequential semester once accepted into the program will be seen as having interrupted their academic progress and out of sequence.  The date of graduation for out of sequence students is not guaranteed.
  5. Withdrawal from a didactic course requires an automatic withdrawal from the corresponding co-requisite courses. If a student withdraws from a didactic course that requires an automatic withdrawal from a co-requisite practicum, this withdrawal from the two courses will be counted as one withdrawal.
  6. More than three academic withdrawals in a semester is considered lack of progress toward the degree. A pattern of withdrawals may influence a request for consideration of reinstatement to the nursing program.
  7. Withdrawal from nursing program courses constitutes a disruption in progression and requires that a student seek reinstatement to the program. Students must submit a formal written request to the Admission, Progression, and Graduation (APG) Committee at least one semester in advance of wishing to return.
