based on the ratio of 70:30. This means that all unit exams, quizzes, and/or other class assignments will comprise 70% of the student’s final composite grade and the final exam will be counted at 30% of the final composite grade. Progression: The skills laboratory and clinical component of a course is graded on a pass/fail basis. In order to progress to the next course, the student must pass the theory, skills laboratory, and clinical component of the course. If a student passes the theory component with a “C” or better, but fails either the skills laboratory or clinical component of the course, the student will earn a course grade of “D”. Therefore, the student will not advance to the next course. Should a student fail the skills laboratory or clinical component at midterm, but pass the theory component, the midterm grade will be recorded as a “D”. Skills that are identified as testable skills for each course must be passed in two (2) attempts: one initial test and one retest. The retest must occur within two (2) weeks of the original test date in order to progress to the next course or the date assigned on the testable skills checklist prepared by the course facilitator. Assignments/Examinations: Exams: Refer to NUR Course Outline and NUR Course Calendar for dates of the unit exams; changes will be announced in the case of unforeseen circumstances. For web-enhanced courses, please see Blackboard for web-enhanced assignments. Faculty reserve the right to prohibit students from progressing if assignments given in theory and lab are not completed according to the listed completion requirements and due dates and will receive a failing grade at midterm and final if the assignment is not completed. Final exam dates are TBA & when known will be announced in class and posted on Blackboard. The final exam will be cumulative, covering all course material. Required reading will be tested on unit exams as well as the final exam. See course plan for reading assignments. All exams will be administered on campus promptly at the beginning of scheduled class time. If tardy, students will not be permitted to enter the classroom and this will result in a missed exam. A student who chooses to attend class but does not sit for the exam on the same day will receive a zero for the exam and a makeup exam will not be administered.
