It should be clearly understood by all students that the Dean of Nursing of the College of Nursing has the authority to dismiss and/or to refuse readmission to any student at any time if circumstances of a legal, moral, health, social or academic nature are considered to justify such action. Dismissal may be a result of a probationary period (see SAP) or may be independent of probation.
Any faculty member may recommend to the Dean of Nursing the dismissal of a student if it is inadvisable for the student to continue in the College. A recommendation for dismissal may be based upon observed problems in mental or physical health, conduct, attendance, quality of clinical performance and/or failure to meet academic requirements. The Dean of Nursing may make an immediate decision or take the recommendation to the Faculty Organization for further discussion.
