7 Promotion Regulations
  1. The standing of every student will be assessed at the end of each academic semester, and a grade report will be issued by the University Registrar to the individual student.

  2. A student is required to achieve a grade of at least 65% or a grade of PAS as appropriate in each of the required nursing courses.

  3. A student failing to achieve the requirements outlined above is permitted to repeat the given nursing course only once.

  4. A student who chooses to repeat a nursing course that was previously passed, must successfully complete that course in order to proceed with the planned course sequence.

  5. All prior clinical courses must be successfully completed in order to progress to each clinical course in the program sequence.

  6. After the course has begun, a student is not permitted to drop a clinical course without the written permission of the Dean/Director or delegate.

  7. A student in the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program Accelerated Option who fails a course is required to withdraw from the Option. This student may be permitted, with special permission from the Dean/Directors, to resume studies within the 4-Year Option of the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program and is subject to all its academic standards and requirements. Accordingly, a failed course in the Accelerated Option carries over to the 4-Year Option of the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program as a first failure in the relevant course(s).

  8. A second failure in a given nursing course will result in required withdrawal from the program.

  9. Failure in excess of two nursing courses during the program will result in required withdrawal from the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program.

  10. A student who is required to withdraw from the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program due to academic failure, as outlined in the clause above, may appeal for readmission to the School of original admission after a lapse of two semesters as outlined under Readmission Regulations for the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program. Students are advised that a subsequent failure will result in a second required withdrawal from the program.

  11. A student who is required to withdraw from the program a second time will not be eligible for future admission/readmission to the program.

  12. A student may be required to withdraw from a nursing course with a clinical component or from the program at any time, on the recommendation of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies, if the student is deemed unsafe in a clinical setting, or if the student’s behaviour prohibits achievement of the course or program objectives. This clause could also be applied to a student who displays unethical or unprofessional behavior in classroom, lab or clinical settings. A student who is required to withdraw from the program for any of these reasons will not be eligible for future admission/readmission to the program or the Faculty/School of Nursing.

  13. A student who does not complete a nursing course for a period of three consecutive semesters will be considered to have withdrawn from the program.

  14. A student in the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program who would like to take a leave of absence from the program may do so only with the written permission of the Dean or delegate. A leave will be granted for a maximum period of three consecutive semesters. A student on leave who plans to resume studies must notify the Dean/Director or designate in writing one semester prior to registration.

  15. A student in the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program who voluntarily withdraws from the program prior to the conclusion of the first semester of the first year and who would like to return to the program must re-apply in competition as a new applicant.

  16. A student in the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program who voluntarily withdraws from the program, at the conclusion of the first semester of the program, or later, and who would like to return to the program, must appeal for readmission as outlined under Readmission Regulations for the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program.

  17. A student in the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program who is readmitted following a period of absence, either as a result of a leave of absence or a withdrawal from the program, upon the recommendation of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies may be required to undertake remedial work, which can include repeating clinical, laboratory, or classroom courses, or repeating one or more terms of the program. A student will be advised of the remedial program at the time of readmission. All remedial work must be successfully completed before a student will be permitted to proceed in the program.
