Unsatisfactory Progress

If a student has not achieved the required grade in any supportive course, or if a student has not achieved the required minimum grade or above in a nursing course, the following process must be initiated by the student.

  1. Withdraw from the nursing course if the student has failed to meet prerequisites for that
  2. Meet with advisor to discuss plan to remedy the course failure.
  3. Re-take the required course. (Please remember that only one physical science course and/or one nursing course may be repeated before the student must withdraw from the major). Note: in accordance with TCNJ policy, courses may be repeated only
  4. When the required grade is achieved, the student must make an appointment to discuss his or her progress in the major with his or her advisor and/or the Chairperson of the nursing Students will be required to satisfactorily pass a skills proficiency test before they are permitted to repeat a 300 or 400 level course that has a clinical component.

When a course is retaken, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the Office of Records and Registration to request that the original grade be removed from the calculation of the student’s Grade Point Average and the more recent grade included.

Note: This must be initiated by the student; it is not done automatically.
