4.1 Regulations Applicable to the Baccalaureate Nursing Program
To enter second year of the Baccalaureate Nursing Program, a GPA of 2.0 or better is required; to enter third and fourth years, and to be eligible for graduation, a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better is required. Refer to Academic Probation - Baccalaureate Nursing Program, for further information.
Until the final disposition of a disciplinary appeal, students in the four year undergraduate program will not be permitted to attend clinical practice or the nursing skills laboratory. At the discretion of the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs, Faculty of Nursing, students may be granted permission to attend the lecture component only of a nursing course(s) while awaiting a final disposition of an appeal currently in progress.
Failures in Nursing Courses
Students will be permitted to repeat a non-clinical nursing course only once
following a failure. Withdrawal from the program will be required following a
second failure in the same nursing course.
A student who fails a clinical course will be permitted to repeat the course once. A subsequent failure in any clinical course (including the one being repeated) will normally require the student to withdraw from the program.
Students who fail a Nursing course twice, or who fail two Nursing clinical courses, and are required to withdraw are ineligible for re-admission to the Faculty of Nursing. Students who fail the same Nursing course twice, prior to applying to the Faculty of Nursing, are ineligible for admission to the Faculty of Nursing.
Criminal Record Search/Child Abuse Registry Check
All students applying for admission in September 2004 and later are required to provide a self-declaration of a criminal record or Child Abuse Registry listing following application, and successful applicants are required to provide to the Faculty of Nursing an official Criminal Record Search and Child Abuse Registry check prior to registration. See Section 3.2. After admission and at any time prior to completing the program, students charged with or convicted of a criminal offence or listed on the Child Abuse Registry are required to report this information to the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs. Failure to report a criminal offence may result in dismissal from the program. Criminal offences will be reviewed by the Faculty of Nursing for the implications of the conviction in view of the professional mandate to protect the public. A listing on the Child Abuse Registry or failure to report the listing will result in dismissal.
Students admitted prior to September 2004 are advised that some clinical practice sites require that students complete a Criminal Record Search and/or a Child Abuse Registry check.
