Associate of Science in Nursing
Progression and Graduation Requirements
In order to progress in the clinical nursing sequence, students must earn at least a "C" (2.0) grade in BIO 240 and all required nursing courses, show satisfactory achievement of clinical objectives, score 90% or better by the third attempt on the Drug Dosage Calculation exam given each semester and maintain an overall GPA of at least 2.0.
Students who withdraw failing (WF) or fail one nursing course are permitted to re-enroll in the course. Students who are granted an administrative withdrawal (AW), and are passing at the time of the withdrawal, are not considered to have failed and are permitted to re-enroll in the course(s). Students who fail one nursing course twice, or two nursing courses, and desire to re-enroll, must request an appearance before the Course Re-Enrollment Committee. Students may appear before the Course Re-enrollment Committee one time.
The Course Re-Enrollment Committee is made up of all members of the nursing faculty and the UVI Counselor and is charged with making the decision to approve or deny re-enrollment. This Committee meets semi-annually, prior to the spring and fall advisement periods (typically in March and October). Following the meeting, the Re-Enrollment Committee carefully considers the information presented and makes a decision to allow or deny re-enrollment. The Committee’s decision will be shared with the student by the Program Chair, or designee. Students who are approved must comply with current policies, procedures, and progression requirements. Students who are not approved for re-enrollment are dismissed from the Program and are not eligible for re-admission.
A total of 73 semester credits is required for completion of the Associate of Science in Nursing degree (ASN). In addition, students must pass the English Proficiency Examination.
