Anatomy and Physiology courses must be completed within seven years of application date to the nursing program. Any student with a passing grade for courses over seven (7) year limit will need to repeat the course with a grade of “C” or better.

The policy will be enforced beginning with the May 2015 nursing application period. This allows students two semesters in which to repeat their coursework if older than seven years. Students that need to repeat Anatomy and Physiology must see a college counselor or workforce advisor.

This notice is to update you on laws related to health care licensure and prior criminal history. The following two items will provide you information on legislative changes and the Board of Nursing’s perspective on prior criminal history and disciplinary action that may impact your eligibility to complete clinical experiences in the nursing program and that may impact your eligibility to take the NCLEX licensure examination.

As a student it is your responsibility to remain abreast of regulations and laws that impact licensure. If you have questions regarding whether this law applies to you, please consult an attorney. The college is unable to provide legal advice.
