Withdrawal From Nursing Courses Policy

Any student who withdraws from a nursing course after the tenth (10th) week of a 16-week semester or after the fourth (4th) week of a 6-week semester with a failing average will be considered to be a withdrawal/failure status.

Any student who withdraws from a nursing course before the tenth week of a 16-week semester or fourth week of a 6-week semester, regardless of their academic standing, will be considered a withdrawal status.

The withdrawal/failure enables the student to be readmitted one time only (barring no previous failure from a nursing course). Readmission will depend on the student's academic and clinical performance, professional behavior, and ability to benefit from repeating the course.

Dismissal Policy

Students may be dismissed from the School for failure to comply with the requirements and regulations as stated in The Student Handbook. Prior to final action, students may represent themselves at a meeting with the Director and Faculty.

Readmission Policy

  • Students who fail a course may be readmitted one time only. Readmission will depend on the student's academic and clinical performance, professional behavior, and ability to benefit from repeating the course.
  • Students who withdraw, passing or failing, from the program may be readmitted one time only depending on the student's academic and clinical performance, professional behavior, and ability to benefit from repeating the course.

The readmission procedure includes:

  • Personal interview
  • Completion of suggested program to assist students with achieving course objectives and thus benefit from returning to the School
  • CBC, PPD, urinalysis
  • Criminal background check
  • Drug screening

Please note:

  • Readmission is contigent upon the availability of space.

Leave of Absence/Withdrawal

Students in good academic standing sometimes find that they must interrupt their studies because of personal reasons. A leave of absence may be granted upon written notification to the Director of the School. The appropriate form must be completed.

Students wishing to withdraw from the program are required to communicate their decision in writing to the Director of the School prior to withdrawal. An exit interview will be scheduled with the student to discuss unfinished business with the Registrar and the Financial Aid Officer.

Family Educational and Privacy Act

In compliance with Public Law 93-380, Section 438, the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) protects the student's rights by setting strict limits on disclosure of the student's educational records without the consent of the student. Grades or any other protected information will not be disclosed without the written consent of the student.
