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 (Appendix B) and a personal statement to the Dean of Students in the Office of Students 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, the Clinical. If progression is delayed for more than one (1) semester, the student may be required to enroll in a 1 credit skills refresher course IS Nursing Clinical Skills Refresher to update knowledge and skills, as well as to make an appropriate transition into the current curricular structure. Additionally, updated health, certification and clearance documents may need to be submitted.
