Acceptable Academic Status - DNP Program
All DNP and Post-Master's PMHNP Certificate students must achieve a B or better in all DNP /Post- Master's PMHNP Certificate courses.
If a DNP or Post- Master's PMHNP student receives a grade lower than a B in any DNP/Post Master's PMHNP course, the student must repeat the course.
A student whose term QPA falls below 3.0 will receive a letter of warning from the Department Head.
A second grade lower than a B, in the same course or any other course, results in dismissal from the DNP or Post-Master's PMHNP Program.
The following process will be utilized when a student receives a course grade lower than a B:
Faculty/instructor notifies DNP Program Director
DNP Program Director notifies SNHS Department Head
Department Head sends letter to the student to include the grading policy standards and information regarding student progression.
