Returning to Program Following Medical Withdrawal

Students who withdraw from the School of Nursing for medical reasons must submit a verifiable letter from a licensed primary care provider (MD, DO, NP, PA) addressing Essential Qualifications and a personal statement to the Dean of Students in Student Rights & Responsibilities. The request for return and the physician’s statement will be reviewed by the Dean of Students for approval.

Return to the School of Nursing is offered on a space-available basis, and is coordinated by the Associate Director of Advising, Admission, and Student Support. If progression is delayed for more than one (1) semester, the student may be required to enroll in a 1 credit independent study skills refresher course or demonstrate clinical competence prior to being allowed to continue in clinical courses. Additionally, updated health, certification and clearance documents may need to be submitted.
