NURS 6099 Comprehensive Examination

Candidates for any of the master’s track option in the College of Nursing must satisfactorily pass a comprehensive examination. The comprehensive examination tests the breadth of a student's knowledge within the scope of the track within the MSN curriculum. The examination includes a written portion and, at the discretion of the examination committee, it may also include an oral component. The course is graded on a "Pass/No Credit" option. A grade of "Pass" is required to graduate from the track within the college of nursing. A graduate student must be admitted to candidacy for a degree before he/she will be allowed to take the comprehensive examination. Early in their degree program students should review the requirements for taking the examination. Students whose performance on the comprehensive examination is unsatisfactory may reschedule an examination at the next regular administration, or, at the discretion of the dean, at an earlier time. Unless departmental requirements are more limiting, students who attempt the comprehensive examination two times and are not successful will be dropped from the graduate program. Course fee.
