Probationary Status

Students who earn a “C-” or below in a nursing course, withdraw in failing status (withdrawal in failing status is considered a failure in the School of Nursing), or receives a Performance Progression Alert (PPA) for a major violation or 3 minor violations are subject to RAP review and may be placed on probation in the School of Nursing. Students may repeat a failed nursing course, or enroll in other subsequent nursing courses, only after a review by the RAP committee.

If, while on academic probation, a student earns a “C-” or below in any nursing course, or withdraws in failing status, that student will be dismissed from the School of Nursing. If, while on professional conduct-related probation, a student receives a Performance Progression Alert (PPA) for a major violation or receives an additional 3 Performance Progression Alert (PPA) for minor violations, the student will be dismissed from the School of Nursing.

Each situation is individually evaluated, and permission to continue and/or repeat is not automatically granted. Generally, students will remain on probation for one calendar year from the date of the RAP review.
