The Dean 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. The dismissal may be a result of a probationary period (see SAP) or may be independent of probation.
A 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. The student will be afforded due process.
