(70 Hours)

Admission

Admission to the ASN program is competitive. Meeting minimal admission criteria does not guarantee acceptance. The admission process is completed in two steps. Students wishing to major in nursing at the associate level must either be unconditionally admitted or have completed all developmental coursework. Students not meeting this requirement will need to declare Applied Health Sciences as a major until all developmental course work has been successfully completed. Once requirements are met, then students can declare a major of nursing.

Students are admitted into step one of the ASN Program year-round. The Admissions Committee reviews all records of qualified applicants.

Step One:

For admission to the ASN program, the student must:

  1. Submit application for admission to undergraduate studies with $30 application fee;
  2. Submit Official high school transcript or the equivalent (GED). A high school transcript or GED is not required for students transferring in a minimum 12 semester hours of college credit;
  3. Submit Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended;
  4. Meet all unconditional admission requirements for as listed in the Troy University undergraduate catalog and; have a minimum grade point average GPA of at least 2.75/4.0 scale on all college work attempted at the undergraduate level and a minimum grade point average of at least 2.0/4.0 scale on all college work attempted at Troy University at the undergraduate level. If less than 12 HR of college work has been attempted, you must have a minimum 2.75/4.0 High School GPA or a GED with a score of 500; and
  5. Meet core performance standards required for duties of the nursing profession (copy of standards available upon request).

Step Two:

  1. Apply for admittance into the clinical nursing sequence. The deadline for filing an application and all required admission documentation is May 30 for fall admission and October 30 for spring admission.
  2. The ASN program will admit students to either the day or evening option each semester. Students who are admitted to one option will not be allowed to transfer into a different option.
  3. Admission is based upon a point system comprised of overall GPA and grades in required courses
    1. Student will lose points for courses that were dropped or failed.
    2. Any student that fails a first-semester nursing course after being admitted to the clinical sequence will have to return to the “selection group” and attempt to be reselected based on the points system in order to repeat a course the following semester.

NOTE: If a student is attempting to transfer credit for nursing courses from another accredited school of nursing, a letter from the dean/director of that school must be submitted stating that the student was eligible for continuation in the nursing program. If the student was not eligible for continuation in the program, the student must take all required Troy University ASN nursing courses (i.e., no nursing courses will be transferred).

Progression

  1. Student must maintain an overall Troy University GPA of at least 2.0 on 4.0 scale while enrolled in nursing courses.
  2. Student must earn a grade of C (74%) or better in each required course.
  3. Student will be able to repeat a nursing course only one time to achieve a grade of C or better .
  4. Student may repeat only one ASN Program nursing course (with the exception of NSG 2204  or NSG 2213 ); therefore, a second D or F in any ASN nursing course (with the exception of NSG 2204 , or NSG 2213 ) will result in automatic dismissal from the Program.
  5. Student must make 90% or higher on a dosage and solutions calculation examination in NSG 1151 to progress in the program.
  6. Student must complete the program within four years from the date of initial enrollment in the first clinical nursing course (NSG 1131 ) to remain in the program. Whether a student drops, fails or withdraws from NSG 1131  the student can only re-enroll once more. If a student drops, fails, or withdraws a second time, the student will be dismissed from the ASN program.

Degree

Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the student is awarded the Associate of Science in Nursing degree and may then apply to the Board of Nursing to write the licensing examination to become a registered nurse (RN).
