Course Block Curriculum System
The University uses a “Block System”. Students study one content area and master it without distractions from other subjects. Progression in the nursing program is dependent on the mastery of each Block.
Level of Achievement
The University has set the standard of achievement for each Block at 90%. To receive a “pass”, or “P”, a student must achieve a score of 90% or higher on each assessment.
The College of Nursing provides additional learning opportunities for students to achieve the required 90% in each block. There are additional opportunities through remediation to achieve a standard of 90% to accommodate different styles and rates of learning. During remediation, students work with faculty to identify areas that need further mastery, develop learning strategies, and re-test or rewrite the educational assignment.
Classroom/ Lab Hours
The Accelerated BSN on-campus learning modality option is a full-time program. Classes are Monday-Friday from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm for all didactic components in each block. Skills lab assignments may need participation after normal class hours.
