The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program prepares students for beginning practice as a registered nurse in a variety of settings. Students are prepared for graduate studies in nursing. The emphasis of the program is on the use of knowledge and skills to plan and implement nursing care. Students should refer to the Graduate Catalog for additional information about graduate studies.
Students must meet the same admission requirements as all other applicants to the University. Academic advising for all students declaring Pre-nursing or nursing majors must be done by a member of the nursing faculty.
Pre-nursing students are advised individually in group sessions. The times and dates of advisement sessions are found on the School of Nursing Web site www.utc.edu/Nursing. All students should regularly check the School of Nursing Web site.
Enrollment in the nursing major is limited. Admission to the University does not ensure acceptance into the nursing major.
Eligibility Requirements for Participation in the Nursing Program
Nursing is a practice discipline, with cognitive, sensory, affective, and psychomotor performance requirements. The faculty of the School of Nursing has identified the skills and professional behaviors that are essential to pursue a course of study to be eligible to write the National Council Licensure Examination-R.N. and practice as a professional nurse. In order to progress in the nursing curriculum, a student must possess a functional level of capability to perform the duties required of a professional nurse. The essential eligibility requirements for participation in the nursing program are identified as Core Performance Standards.
These standards are adapted from the Southern Council on Collegiate Education for Nursing and are congruent with the skills presented in the document entitled Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing revised (1998), a publication of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. If these standards cannot be achieved by the student, either unassisted or with dependable use of assistive devices, the faculty reserves the right to exclude the student from clinical areas. Potential students are provided copies of the Core Performance Standards upon request. A copy of the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (2008) is available for review in the school’s Office of the Director.
The nursing program includes clinical components, practica and internships. Prior to and during contact with clients in clinical assignments, practicum experiences and internships, students
