BSN Program Details
Required for generic students: Forty-six credits in the nursing major are required. Cognate requirements: BIOL 207-208, 211, 333, 334; CHEM 101-102 or 105-106; PSYC 319 and 320. Nursing students are to maintain a minimum of “C+” in all nursing courses and a minimum grade of “C+” in all required science courses.
Nursing students transferring into CMSV must have earned a minimum grade of “B” in all required science courses transferred into the college. If the grade is below a “B” the student has the option to repeat the required science course at CMSV and must achieve a minimum grade of “C+” or achieve a minimum grade of “B” at another institution and be approved by the Chair of the appropriate CMSV science department.
Required science courses may only be repeated once. No more than one science course may be repeated. The total number of withdrawals that a student may have from required science courses is two. Any withdrawal after the first two will be considered a failure. An additional withdrawal or failure in a required science course will result in the student’s dismissal from the nursing program.
Grades earned in any required science course taken more than five years from the date of application must be evaluated by the Chair of the respective science department. The college reserves the right to mandate assessment and appropriate placement in courses considered essential for satisfactory academic progress.

Because of the importance of accountability and personal responsibility in the nursing profession, absences in the classroom and in clinical experience must be related to acute physical illness or family crises. The student must notify the instructor and/or clinical agency of an absence prior to the start of the clinical day. If the student is unable to contact the instructor or the clinical facility, they must leave a message with the Department of Nursing at the Riverdale campus for those enrolled there or the Mid-Manhattan site for those enrolled there.
