Nursing course transfer

  1. 0
    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"?

    Thank you.

    So sorry you are finding yourself in such a pickle. But unfortunately, there are no standard answers to your questions. You will have to contact each school to determine their policy and find out whether you would be eligible. It would be great if you can transfer some of the nursing content since this is not the usual practice.

    Best of luck to you.

    I think the answers to these questions lie in your college registrar's office. What do they tell you? Generally speaking, people who flunk out of one program may have a hard time getting into another one, though. You haven't said what your status is.

    Oh I thought I did, sorry. I'm currently taking the two classes. I have an 83% in fundamentals, and physical assessment I have a 75%. I have until march 6 to withdraw from any classes with a W from the school. The thing is I can reapply to the college if I withdraw, but I won't be able to reapply to the nursing program. I checked other schools e.g. Texas women's university, Texas a&m, etc.. They all ask for a letter from my program's dean for a proof of "good standing" and that I am eligible to reapply. I was excited to come to this school because I had friends that graduated from here. I was accepted to other programs but I chose this school
