The policies in this handbook are regularly reviewed and are subject to change. Students enrolled in nursing courses will be notified of changes when they are made.

11 ADVANCED PLACEMENT and READMISSION IN NURSING COURSES Eligibility Criteria for Advanced Placement or Readmission This policy describes how progression in the Nursing Program either proceeds or ends when a student has applied for advanced placement, readmission, has grades of withdrawal, withdrawal-failure, course failure or needs to defer readmission to an NUR course. This policy also reviews the criteria for dismissal from the Nursing Program. ADVANCED PLACEMENT: Advanced placement in the Nursing Program occurs when a student transfers from another nursing program or is admitted into the LPN to ASN option. Applications for advanced placement admission must be completed in accordance with the policies and procedures established by the Office of Admissions. Placement will be determined by date of acceptance, space availability, GPA and history of prior nursing course grades. Students with passing grades in nursing courses will have first priority after date, GPA and space availability considerations. DEFERRALS: A deferral means to postpone admission to the Nursing Program. Deferrals for Students beginning NUR 101: A deferral option may be used only once for students beginning the Nursing program and entering the NUR 101 course. The student will automatically be offered a spot in the next available class if they maintain academic eligibility. If the student does not accept the next available spot, the student will be removed from the Admissions list and must reapply to the Nursing Program using admission requirements at the time of reentry to the nursing program. Students are no longer being placed on a nursing program waiting list. Deferrals for Advanced Placement students: Students will be placed on the appropriate course waiting list based on the date of the student s application to the nursing program. Admission into the next available class is determined by date of application, space availability, GPA and history of prior nursing course grades. Students with passing grades in nursing courses will have first priority after date, GPA and space availability considerations. NURSING READMISSION POLICIES: Readmission (re-entry) into NUR 101: Re-entry into NUR 101 is available only to students who must withdraw and have a withdrawal grade of W or WP. Students who withdraw in good standing from NUR 101 will be offered a spot in the next NUR 101 class if they maintain academic eligibility. A student may use the withdrawal in good standing option only once. If a student does not accept the next available spot, the student must reapply to the Nursing Program using admission requirements at the time of reentry to the nursing program. Readmission (re-entry) into the nursing program for students in NUR 102,NUR 201, NUR 204 and NUR 205: Readmission or re-entry into the nursing program is for students who were enrolled a UMA nursing course and withdrew from the course (either with a W or a WF ) or did not successfully complete the course. Readmission to the Nursing Program is not an automatic process. Admission into the next available class is determined by date of reapplication (re-entry) to UMA, space availability, GPA and history of prior nursing course grades. Students with passing grades in nursing courses will have first priority after date, GPA and space availability considerations. 4

12 Once students have been accepted for readmission, it is the student s responsibility to discuss with their Nursing Advisor prior to beginning or within the first few weeks of the course into which they are being readmitted the following: reasons for leaving the program any remedial actions taken to promote success Nursing Program s requirements and expectations WITHDRAWAL GRADES IN NUR COURSES: A grade of W (Withdrawal) is given to a student who withdraws from an NUR course in good standing. Students who withdraw from the Nursing Program with a grade of W (Withdrawal in good standing) are eligible to apply for readmission. Please Note: Students have one opportunity to withdraw in good standing from NUR 101. Procedure for readmission after withdrawing in good standing from all NUR courses: A student who has withdrawn in good standing from a NUR course must submit a UMA re-entry application to the UMA admissions office. The student will receive a letter from the Nursing Education office explaining this policy after the time of withdrawal. A grade of WF (Withdrawal-Failure) in NUR 101: A grade of WF is considered a course failure. If a student has a WF in NUR 101, the student is dismissed from the Nursing Education Program. That student would need to reapply using current admission requirements. A grade of WF for Students in NUR 102, NUR 201, NUR 204 and NUR 205: Students with a one time WF may reapply to the nursing program to be considered for readmission in the course the student needs to repeat. Students must submit a UMA re-entry application to the UMA admissions office. The student will receive a letter from the Nursing Education office explaining this policy after the time of withdrawal. Admission into the next available class is determined by date of reapplication (re-entry) to UMA, space availability and GPA. FAILING GRADES IN NUR COURSES: Students in NUR 101: If a student has a failing grade in NUR 101, the student is dismissed from the Nursing Education Program. That student would need to reapply using current admission requirements. Students in NUR 102, NUR 201, NUR 204 and NUR 205: One Failing Grade: Students with a one-time failing grade may reapply to the nursing program to be considered for readmission in the course the student needs to repeat. Students must submit a UMA re-entry application to the UMA admissions office. The student will receive a letter from the Nursing Education office explaining this policy after the end of the course. Admission into the next available class is determined by date of reapplication (re-entry) to UMA, space availability and GPA. 5

13 Two Failing Grades (WF or failing grade): If a student receives two grades of WF, two course failures, or a combination of the two, (in the same or two different NUR courses) the student will be dismissed from the Nursing Education Program. Once dismissed, students are not considered eligible for readmission to the Nursing Education Program. Students who wish to reapply to the Nursing Education Program may appeal the decision to the Nursing Education Program office. Students must submit a written appeal to the Nursing Education Program office. Information to be included in this appeal letter needs to include the following: Possible Reasons for course failure Steps to be taken to ensure future success Revised:

16 Students are required to contact their advisor for registration, add-drop changes, or to initiate the process for withdrawal from a course or the program. You must be sure to take the appropriate courses in the sequence outlined above. Your Faculty Advisor is vital for correct course selection, which will ensure your academic experience at UMA is both successful and timely. To contact your advisor, refer to your student information page in MaineStreet or the UMA Faculty and Staff directory located in this handbook for faculty office numbers and phone extensions. All appointments for advising are made directly with the faculty member advisor. Revised 1/2013 9

17 ATTENDANCE POLICIES FOR ALL NURSING COURSES 1. ATTENDANCE is expected at all classes and required at both the UMA college laboratory and clinical experiences. Clinical absences must be reported by the student to the instructor and the clinical agency prior to the start of clinical. All absences will be reviewed by the course faculty. No makeup is provided for missed class. The academic requirements in the nursing curriculum are demanding and students are cautioned to examine their work schedules and extracurricular plans with this in mind. 2. LABORATORY/CLINICAL ATTENDANCE: Attendance is mandatory for all scheduled clinical and laboratory experiences. The nursing faculty understands that absences may occur due to extenuating circumstances. If a student is to be absent, the instructor and the clinical unit must be notified before the start of the clinical or laboratory experience. The student is responsible for attaining the objectives of the course. Recognizing that missed clinical or laboratory time contributes to limited clinical practice opportunities, all missed clinical hours are required to be made up according to course schedules. (revised 3/2012). 10

18 BEHAVIORAL IMPAIRMENT Nursing requires that the practitioner maintain cognitive and affective clarity for the provision of safe client care. It is essential that judgment, memory, knowledge, and problem-solving capability not be compromised so that the best interests of the clients, students, university and clinical agency can be served. With the above belief in mind the following policy has been adopted by the UMA s Nursing Education Program for students: If, in the professional judgment of the instructor, a student s behavior, appearance, and/or performance indicate impairment the student will be removed immediately from any clinical responsibilities and told she/he has been placed on probation. The decision for probation could be made anytime during clinical hours, that is, from arrival at the agency to the post conference meeting. The student will not attend clinical until after the probationary process is completed. A referral to the University of Maine at Augusta Behavioral Intervention Team may be initiated if necessary. Revised 5/17/

19 BLACKBOARD USE POLICY Blackboard is an online software tool for faculty and students to communicate about the course. Announcements, course materials, grades, and online discussions are some of the ways Blackboard is utilized. Students are responsible for checking Blackboard and for the information posted there. 12

20 CIVILITY STATEMENT The mission and philosophy of the UMA Nursing Program are fully aligned with the promotion of a healthy and civil environment, where both faculty and students can engage in co-creating a learning community. Civility in nursing education is essential to creating a sustainable community of scholarly caring. Civility consists of treating each other with mutual respect and kindness. As members of the nursing program community of learners, we are all committed to supporting a caring environment, including caring for self. A goal for the nursing program is that all members of the community understand and commit to an environment that fosters approachable interaction. However, in order for learning to flourish, communications between members must always be courteous and considerate. So that all members of the community share a common meaning of civility the following describes a definition of incivility followed by guidelines for acceptable civil behaviors. Uncivil behaviors are disrespectful and devalue the person targeted. Behaviors and language that cause emotional harm and violates the dignity of an individual or group constitutes incivility. Some examples of uncivil behaviors include but are not limited to the use of demeaning language, yelling, gossiping, intimidation, instigating, inflammatory written communication, rudeness, ostracizing, non-supporting or any other disrespectful action. The intentionality of harm may be less apparent in lower intensity incivility, which is offensive behavior, with overt or covert intent to harm the recipient and with disregard of established workplace standards for mutually respectful behavior. The following are guiding principles to create and sustain an environment of civility. Members of the community: support and maintain a safe and caring environment in which all members can engage in respectful and caring dialogue. This includes social media. foster an environment of kindness, courtesy, and inclusiveness through our words, tone and demeanor. are responsible and accountable for his/her own actions and words. consciously appreciate and honor the diversity of everyone in the learning community. maintain a stance of approachability and value all dialogue that is constructive and conducive to learning. subscribe to the generally acceptable use of netiquette. * *Rules of etiquette that applies when communicating over computer networks, especially the internet. Revised 5 /28/13 13

21 COURSE MATERIALS For each course you will be provided with an electronic copy of a comprehensive syllabus which provides you with in-depth information about the course, its outcomes, and the content to be covered. You are also likely to receive a number of handouts and other related materials. We STRONGLY recommend that you retain these materials for future reference. More and more nurses are returning to school to work on advanced degrees in nursing and healthrelated fields. The odds are very high that you will be joining them at some time even if you don t think it is likely today! Schools are beginning to use some very innovative approaches in reviewing an individual s academic background to determine how much credit can be transferred. Many of these new approaches require varying amounts of documentation (proof). Syllabi can be worth their weight in gold for this. In addition to their use for receiving credit for prior learning, they can be very useful study aids when preparing for your licensure exam. The Nursing Education Program does not keep syllabi on file other than the ones currently being used. We are unable to reproduce these materials at a later date. Therefore, we encourage you to keep a copy of course materials received throughout the program. Revised 6/19/

22 COURSE PROBATION Purpose: To clearly inform students of their risk for course failure unless corrective action is initiated on their part. Policy: A student who fails to meet the course theory or clinical standards of the Nursing Education Program, as described in the course syllabus, may be placed on course probation with a written plan for remediation. In the case of course probation, the faculty member(s) and student will co-create a remediation plan. If the criteria in the remediation plan are met, the student will be returned to good academic standing. The probationary status extends only for the duration of the course in which the student received the probation and this status will be removed at the completion of the course with the awarding of the final grade. However, the completed probationary form is retained in the student file. Procedure: Probation related to Theory Component: o Student will receive a mailed notice of the failing grade. o Student will meet with their nursing advisor to co-create a remediation plan within two weeks of receipt of the notification. o Student will obtain the signature of their advisor and the faculty will return a signed copy of the remediation plan/form to the student and course manager. Probation related to Clinical Component: o Student will meet with clinical instructor to discuss current clinical performance. The course manager will be informed of the student s performance concerns. o If appropriate, the student may also be required to meet with the course manager and/or Academic Coordinator. o Student and clinical instructor will co-create a remediation plan which will be signed by both the student and clinical instructor with one copy to be given to the student and one copy to be retained by the instructor. o Failure to meet the conditions of the remediation plan will result in clinical failure and therefore course failure. 15

23 COURSE PROBATION FORM Name Date Course Your performance in NUR has been reviewed and it has been determined that you are at risk for unsuccessful completion of this course.

26 GRADING AND EXAMINATION POLICIES FOR ALL NURSING COURSES 1. SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF ALL NUR COURSES: In order to progress through the nursing courses and graduate from the Nursing Program, a student must achieve at least a C (76% or above) for each course. The grade assigned to each nursing course is a combination of two components: theory and clinical. The passing grade for the theory component is a least 76% while the clinical component is assigned a pass/fail grade. In determining theory grades, the following scale is used: A = A- = B+ = B = B- = C+ = C = D+ = D = F = 64 and below 2. PROGRESSION: In addition to earning a minimum grade of a C (not C- ) in all nursing courses, a student also must earn a minimum grade of C (not C- ) in the following courses: BIO 110, BIO 210, BIO 321 and MAT 100 (or higher). All prerequisites to each NUR designated course must be either met prior to the start of that course or taken concurrently. A GPA of 2.0 must be maintained to remain in the Nursing program. 3. CLINICAL GRADING (The following information is found on each Clinical Evaluation Tool Face Sheet) In order to successfully complete the clinical component of NUR XXX, the student must achieve a satisfactory rating on each item in the tool. CRITERIA OF CLINICAL EVALUATION: Satisfactory (S): Meets the requirements of performing each element on the clinical tool according to course texts, syllabus, student handbook, and agency policy. Unsatisfactory (U): Consistently fails to perform each element on the clinical tool according to course texts, syllabus, student handbook, and agency policy. Each clinical incident of placing a client in physical and/or emotional jeopardy by nursing actions or inactions will be reviewed by the course faculty. Such incidents may result in dismissal from clinical for the remainder of the semester and course failure. If a student receives a Pass in the clinical portion but either a D or an F in the theory component, the student will be assigned the grade associated with the final theory average. If a student receives a C or higher in the theory component but receives a Fail in the clinical portion, the student will receive a D for the entire course, or an F if theory grade is an F. 19
