ADVISEMENT NOTES FOR PRE-NURSING STUDENTS
Augusta State University pre-nursing students are those who have declared Nursing as their major and are working on required core courses before seeking admission to the nursing program. The students will be advised by faculty in the Department of Nursing. The students must complete prerequisites for NURS 1101 (English 1101 or Honors; Math 1111 or higher; COMS 1010 or 1020; and Psych 2103 Human Growth and Development) prior to full admission into the nursing program. It is also to the student’s advantage to have completed English 1102.
Anatomy and Physiology I and Anatomy and Physiology II prior to enrollment into the nursing sequence. A minimum grade of "C" is required in English Composition (ENGL 1101 and 1102), Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II (BIOL 2111 and BIOL 2112), College Algebra (MATH 1111), Human Development (PYSC 2103), and Microbiology (BIOL 3110).
FOR NURSING STUDENTS
Students Admitted into the Nursing Program
Students, who are admitted into the nursing program while enrolled in co-requisite core courses that require a minimum grade of “C”, must satisfy the minimum course grade requirement. Students who fail to meet this requirement or who withdraw from the co-requisite course will automatically be withdrawn from the ASU nursing program.
Achievement of a grade of “C” or better in each nursing course is necessary to remain in good standing in the nursing program. A student who earns less than a “C” in a nursing course at ASU will be dismissed from the program. Such a student may apply to the Department of Nursing for readmission to the program. The Department of Nursing will consider each request on a case by case basis.
All nursing students are permitted two attempts to successfully complete the nursing curriculum (program); attempts include nursing coursework transferred into the University from other nursing programs. Thus a student who transfers in a grade lower than “C” in a nursing course and then makes a grade below “C” in a nursing course at ASU will be dismissed from the program and will not be considered for readmission.
In order to complete the nursing program, majors are required to pass the Regents Testing Program and to maintain a minimum adjusted GPA of 2.00 or higher (Institutional GPA).
Nursing students will have additional requirements related to health insurance, liability insurance, CPR certification, physical examination, immunizations and TB skin test. Information regarding these additional requirements will be provided to students after acceptance. Students will be assessed additional fees for liability insurance and required tests.
