Traditional Track: Required Courses
Students also must complete all BLUEprint requirements. However, if an entering student needs the 101-level of language, the student will take SP 101 followed by GB 270, which will also count toward a Cultural Literacy Course.
Note: A student may need to take one or more summer courses if they do not enter ready to take the 102-level language or needing any other prerequisite courses.
Students must earn a grade of “C-” or higher in all nursing and nursing support courses required for the nursing major. For all clinical courses, the clinical component is pass/fail. A failure in the clinical practicum will result in failure of the course, regardless of classroom performance. (See the Nursing Handbook for additional information on program requirements.)
Students must maintain satisfactory progress through and completion of courses in each semester, including first year and sophomore level, in accordance with the Traditional Track Degree Plan and must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 to progress through the Nursing Program.
