Hi, I'm fairly new to the AN site. I do have a question about my current nursing predicament. I am currently a student at Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, TX. My school's passing rate is 84% (B) for Fundamentals and Physical Assessment (Health Assessment) class, the rest of the courses after (junior-senior level classes) are subjected to the 76% minimum passing rate. My school just changed their policy that if you don't make the minimum passing rate for fundamentals and physical assessment class you are not eligible to reapply to the program (basically, you're out!). I can't even withdraw (W) without being barred from reapplying. Basically, according to my school, if you withdraw (W) from either classes you're not eligible to reapply, and if you waited and scored less than 84% you're out as well since you failed the program. I'm feeling a little bit trapped. My questions:
1. I know some schools
allow course transfers, and most accept a C or B- nursing courses, but they want you to be "in good standing." Since I cannot reapply for my current nursing program, even if I scored an 83.7% ( which is still a B), does that mean I'm not "in good standing" any longer?
2. If I withdraw (W) from my current nursing program and they consider that it is not acceptable and bar me from reapplying, will that be equal to not "in good standing"?
