QCC - Retaking A&P question

  1. 0
    Hi, I am currently working on my pre requisites for the nursing program at queensborough but my only problem is my grade for A&P 1. I definitely did not do as well as I should've (let's just say, below passing) and was wondering if I was able to retake the class in order to do better. Every other class I had taken either has an A or B but it's anatomy that really got to me last semester :/
    When I applied for fall 2012 classes, I signed myself up for a&p 1 again but I keep hearing that you are not able to retake the class if you failed? Can anyone help?

    Your query is easily answered by QCC's student handbook and or website for the nursing department.

    Criteria for Application

    • Applicants must be a matriculated student at QCC and attend nursing advisement sessions as posted on nursing website.
    • Complete the Pre Clinical sequence with a minimum grade point average of 3.0.
      EN 101 English Composition I 3
      SS-510 Psychology 3
      SS-310 Sociology 3
      BI-301 Anatomy and Physiology 4
      Pre-Clinical Credits 13
      • Only the first grade attained in the pre clinical sequence will be calculated.
      • As of fall 2007, Anatomy and Physiology (BI-301 and BI-302) whether taken at QCC or transferred in from another institution will not be accepted for consideration if taken more than six (6) years ago. Microbiology BI-311 must have been taken within the last five (5) years. Students must achieve a C or better in all Biological Science courses (BI-301, 302 and 311)
      • BI-301 and BI-302 (Anatomy and Physiology I and II) must be taken at the
      • same institution.

    Unless one is mistaken the above means you can repeat a course as many times as you like,but only the first grade will count towards the GPA required (3.0) for entry into the clinical phase/offical nursing program.

    As usual standard advice applies; seek out and speak with someone in the nursing department to obtain official counsel on how to proceed.

    I am a graduate of QCC, you can't repeat a pre-req class unless it's been 6 or more years since you've taken it.
