The BSN progression policy applies to courses with an NUR prefix, HCM3100, NUR4000, and BUS3010. To successfully complete these particular courses within the BSN program, a student must be assigned a final course grade of C or better. Any of the aforementioned courses in which a final grade is lower than a C can be repeated once with the last grade replacing the previous grade in the cumulative GPA. Failure to achieve a satisfactory grade of C or better in a course after a second attempt will result in academic suspension and ineligibility to continue in the BSN program.
