5 Admission Requirements Casper College Requirements 1. Students may take classes at Casper College as unclassified students, but the faculty recommends that those interested in the nursing program apply as classified students. This allows the student to take full advantage of formal academic advising with a nursing faculty member. 2. To apply as a classified student, the applicant must: a. Submit a completed Casper College application form to Admissions and Student Records Office, declaring a major in nursing. b. Arrange for high school and previous college transcripts or GED certification (if applicable) to be sent to Admissions and Student Records Office. c. See the catalog for specific eligibility requirements.. When the above documents are received, Admissions and Student Records Office will send a notification letter to applicants. Instructions for registration will be included in the notification.. Once you have taken and provided the results of the COMPASS test, you will be assigned a nursing faculty academic advisor. Please check in the Saunders Health Science Center building for the list of assigned advisors. School of Health Science Requirements 5. For admission and progression in a Casper College Health Science Program, a qualified individual is one who, with or without reasonable accommodation or modification, meets the essential eligibility requirements for participation in the program. The Health Science fields are practice disciplines with cognitive, sensory, affective, and psychomotor performance requirements. Based on these requirements, a list of Core Performance Standards has been developed. These standards are part of program courses, and some of the standards are more prevalent than others. These standards will be used to assist faculty, the Program Director, and the School of Health Science Dean in determining whether a student meets the essential eligibility requirements for admission and progression in the program. These standards should also be used to assist students in determining whether accommodations or modifications are necessary for the student to meet program requirements. Students who identify potential difficulties with meeting the Core Performance Standards must communicate their concerns to the Accommodative Services Counselor as well as the Program Director. Determination is made on an individual basis as to whether a student meets the essential eligibility requirements or whether or not the necessary accommodations or modifications can be reasonably made for participation in the Health Science program. 5. All admitted Health Sciences students are expected to participate in simulation activities and consent to video recording to optimize instruction and learning. 6. Readmission into a Casper College Health Science Program or transfer between Casper College Health Science programs is at the discretion of the faculty and dean. The faculty and dean will base readmission or transfer decisions on the adopted general Health Science Core Performance Standards and specific department criteria. 5

It is the policy of the H.E. Stuckenhoff Department of Nursing to minimize the risk of an allergic/anaphylactic reaction to latex, identify those at risk and provide a latex safe environment. Revised: 10/11 TNF, updated 1/1 DON, and /1 Background Check / Drug & Alcohol Policies Students enrolled in any of the health science programs will participate in clinical experiences in a variety of agencies. Prior to participating in the clinical experiences, students will be subject to that agency s requirements for a background check, drug testing and drug abuse prevention policies. Students are then subject to the random drug testing policy of that agency. Following graduation, several of the state and/or national licensing or certification (registry) boards, including the Wyoming State Board of Nursing, may refuse to allow a graduate to sit for the required exam or issue a license or certification to a person who has a prior felony conviction or proven history of drug or alcohol abuse. Applicants to whom this applies should consult the program director for further information. 9/19/1 TNF CPR Certification and TB Testing Students must be obtain the American Heart Association Healthcare Provider Basic Life Support CPR card upon entrance to the Nursing Program. Three copies are to be turned in to the DON prior to the due date set for entrance requirements. This must be kept in compliance for duration of program. If a student restarts the program at any point, the card must be submitted showing duration through the remainder of the program. This may mean the student needs to renew the card at an earlier date than the expiration. Students must show proof of a negative TB test or X-ray report upon acceptance to the Nursing Program, dated per nursing director s instructions. This is to be submitted yearly, or more often if required by the clinical facility. If a student restarts the program at any point, proof of a negative TB 7

8 test must be submitted again, which might mean the test must be repeated at that time. X-ray reports or other tests may be required per facility requirements. 9/19/1 TNF; updated DON 7/1 Content Delivery Casper College nursing program is currently a flipped classroom for the majority of our content delivery. The flipped classroom is a model of teaching in which a student s homework is the traditional lecture viewed outside of class. Then class time is spent on inquiry-based learning to facilitate application of content. Written- 5/1-CC Clinical Information In the fourth semester of the nursing program, clinical time is preceptor-based and thus the clinical schedule requires flexibility. Based on agency placement, expenses maybe incurred. Written G, S 0/1 CC Academic Progression Policy To progress in the nursing program, the student must: 1. Take all nursing courses in sequence as listed on the Curriculum Plan. In the event of failure from NRST 1605 or NRST 160, the course will be taken in the subsequent semester. 2. Attain a "C" or better in NRST 1615, NRST 1625, and NRST Achieve a satisfactory clinical rating in all nursing courses.. Maintain core performance standards for nursing. 5. Maintain the college and departmental standards of student conduct. 6. Withdrawal from course(s) without advisor input may delay program admission and/or progression. Revised G,S 10/1 CC,TNF Grading Policy The Casper College Nursing Program adheres to a higher standard than the campus at large. The letter grades are listed below with their equivalent percentages. A = % B = 8-90% C = 75-82% D = 70-7% F = 0-69% Please note we DO NOT round up. We are based on a points system, so a student must earn a certain number of points to earn the desired grade in the course. Written G; 0/11 DON 8

9 Confidentiality Policy Students are expected to maintain client, family and peer confidentiality in every setting. Breach of confidentiality could result in dismissal from the program. Reviewed G, G; /08 EC Clinical Accessibility Policy Casper College Health Science programs utilize a variety of health care agencies in the community for clinical experience for the students. If you have been employed in one or more of the agencies and are not eligible for rehire as an employee, the agency may not permit you to participate in the essential clinical component of the program. Please contact the Human Resources department of the affected agency and request documentation from HR that states the agency s position on your participation in the clinical component of the program. If you receive a negative response from the agency, you are automatically ineligible to apply. A response indicating you will be permitted to attend clinical in the agency will be given to the program director prior to the selection process for admission to the program. If you are unable to fulfill clinical requirements due to a previous employment issue or another issue(s) and have not complied with the above, you could be denied entry in a Health Science program or be dismissed from program. Some programs do not have clinical assignments until the second, third, or fourth semester; students who are denied clinical accessibility at any time prior to or during a program will be dismissed. Reviewed G,S; /10 RC Student Organization Pre-nursing and nursing students are encouraged to participate in the total activities of the college, which includes the Student Nurses Association as preparation for the professional role.

12 Notice of Curriculum Change For planning purposes to enable students who expect to apply to the new curriculum, here is an outline of pre-requisites and courses for the ADN (Associate Degree in Nursing). Further information including the outline of courses toward the BSN will be posted on the Casper College Nursing website. The H.E Stuckenhoff Department of Nursing at Casper College has joined with the other Community College Nursing programs and the University of Wyoming in a statewide consortium to develop a common nursing curriculum for the state of Wyoming. The ReNEW (Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming) curriculum is designed as a baccalaureate curriculum with an Associate Degree benchmark. Under the ReNEW curriculum, persons who enter a nursing program at a community college in Wyoming will be able to complete their ADN (Associate Degree in Nursing), take the national licensure exam (NCLEX-RN) and begin working as a registered nurse. The long term benefit of the ReNEW curriculum is the ability for ADN graduates to move seamlessly toward their baccalaureate degree through online classes in two additional semesters if the BSN prerequisites have been met. It is expected that the final admission to the present curriculum will be Spring 2016 with admissions into the ReNEW curriculum planned for Fall The last application process for the current curriculum will be in the fall of 2015 with the final cohort admitted into the spring semester of Application for the ReNEW curriculum will be in the spring semester 2016 with admission of the first cohort in fall semester When the ReNEW curriculum begins, students who are in the final two cohorts of the current curriculum need to be aware that progression in the program will be affected by failure or withdrawal. Due to the significant changes in the curriculum, it will be necessary for students to apply to re-enter the program if they are unsuccessful in the current curriculum. Additional course work may be required to complete the degree requirements if re-entering into the new curriculum. There will be two potential points of re-entry: re-application to Semester 1 or application for special advanced placement into Semester. Policies regarding re-entry and progression will apply.
