Mission of the Division of Health Sciences and Business Technology

The mission of the Division of Health Sciences and Business Technology is consistent with the mission and goals of Louisiana State University Eunice. The Division is committed to preparing students to contribute to a dynamic global society and culturally diverse work force while emphasizing critical thinking, leadership, and be productive citizens by contributing to their profession and dedicate themselves as professionals, to life-long learning.

Nursing Program Mission Statement

The mission of the LSU Eunice Associate of Science in Nursing Degree Program is to prepare graduates that are eligible to take the NCLEX licensing exam and, upon successful passing, to practice as entry level registered nurses. The program is dedicated to facilitate the student’s development in the role of a professional, as a provider of compassionate and competent nursing care, manager of efficient and effective care, and as a committed member within the discipline of nursing.

Philosophy of Division

The Division of Health Sciences and Business Technology is committed to excellence in education and the development of a stimulating learning environment to prepare students in health care and business technology for successfully attaining their educational, career, and personal goals.

Nursing Philosophy

Faculty believe that nursing is a caring discipline whose members possess integrity and strive for excellence. Nursing is a unique body of knowledge that combines concepts from biological, behavioral, and social sciences. The goal of nursing is to provide holistic patient-centered care that is sensitive to the preferences, values, and needs of culturally diverse patient populations and their families. This care requires teamwork and collaboration. The nurse uses the concepts of communication, evidence-based practice, professionalism, ethics, and safety in the delivery of care in settings throughout the community. Faculty value the unique and common contributions provided by each educational program within the nursing profession and support academic progression.

Nursing Program Graduate Outcomes

The graduate should be able to:

1. Integrate principles from the natural and behavioral sciences with nursing to meet the needs of individuals across the life span.
2. Provide competent care to individuals across the life span by utilizing the nursing process.
3. Communicate effectively to provide care or promote health to individuals across the life span.
4. Manage the care of individuals in collaboration with members of the health care team.

Nursing courses facilitate the student toward the accomplishment of the Graduate Outcomes. Course objectives define the knowledge and skills the student must demonstrate. Unit objectives, both theory and clinical, contribute to the achievement of the outcomes.

  1. Complete forms and submit fees for additional background investigations required by healthcare facilities.
  2. Receive a negative drug screen report.
  3. Students admitted to the nursing program must submit a completed Nursing Program Health Form within six weeks prior to the beginning of the semester of entry. These forms will be mailed to applicants with notification of acceptance for enrollment in nursing courses.

Health information, background checks, initial drug screens and random drug screens will be managed by the student through a secure on-line information management service for a fee which will be paid by the student. All health related information, immunization records, TB testing report, and lab data must be recorded on official medical provider/company stationary. Data submitted in any other format will be rejected.

Students entering nursing are advised that the Louisiana State Board of Nursing (LSBN) requires persons who have been arrested, charged with, convicted of, pled guilty or no contest to, or been sentenced for any criminal offense in any state to petition the Board in writing for the right to practice as a student of nursing in Louisiana prior to enrolling in the first clinical nursing course. The LSBN will conduct a criminal background record check with digital fingerprints on all students applying to the nursing program.

The criminal background check will be conducted by the Louisiana State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. There are additional background investigations required by some of the clinical agencies not covered by the LSBN criminal history background investigation.

The data required by various health care agencies not covered in the LSBN background check include:

1) Social Security number verification, 2) employment verification to include the reason for separation and eligibility for reemployment for each employer, 3) Violent Sexual Offender and Predator Registry Search, 4) Health and Human Services (HHS) / Office of Inspector General (OIG) list of excluded individuals or entities, 5) General Services Administration (GSA) list of parties excluded from federal programs, and 6) U.S. Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) list of Specially Designated Nationals (SDN). A separate agency is contracted with LSU Eunice to perform the additional background checks required by health care affiliates. This background check is completed at the student’s expense.

Retention/Progression Guidelines


Acceptance into the LSU Eunice Nursing program entitles the student to progress through the nursing curriculum with the class to which the student is admitted. In order to be retained and progress in the clinical nursing sequence, a student must:

  1. Maintain an LSU and an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher.
  2. Maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher in all required nursing courses.
  3. Complete all nursing courses with a grade of “C” or better. The grading scale for all nursing courses is: “A”-93-100; “B”-85-92; “C”-77-84; “D”-65-76; “F”-failure, below 65.
  4. Repeat any nursing course in which a grade of “D”, “F”, or “W” was earned. A student is permitted one “D”, “F”, “NC”, or “W” once admitted to the clinical nursing sequence. A second “D”, “F”, “NC”, and/or “W” in any nursing course constitutes dismissal from the program.
  5. Maintain current CPR certification (CPR for Health Care Providers) and annual TB testing.
  6. Maintain health/immunization requirements.

Students may not withdraw from a clinical course for which they have earned an F, regardless of when in the semester the F is earned. Neither, in such a case, may students withdraw from either of the two co-requisite courses.

Failure to successfully complete any nursing course (excluding NURS1000 ), for either academic or other reasons, will require that the student apply for readmission to the Nursing program if the student wishes to continue in the program. A student repeating a nursing course must concurrently re-enroll in the co-requisite nursing courses. Re-enrolling in a co-requisite course in which the student had previously received a passing grade will not be counted as repeated nursing course hours for the dismissal policy. The most recent grade earned will be the grade for the course. The purpose for requiring re-enrollment in co-requisite courses is to assure that nursing students receive the most current health care information.

A student applying for reentry into a nursing course must apply the next time the course is offered. If not accepted, the student may reapply once more when the course is offered again (2 years from the first time the student enrolled in the course). After 2 attempts of reentry, the student will not be considered again for reentry into the nursing course in which the student was unsuccessful or if the student does not reapply with in a 2 year period after last enrollment. If the student wishes to pursue a nursing degree at LSU Eunice, including after the two year period, an application to the nursing program must be completed along with all current requirements for selection. The application will be placed with the pool of students applying for initial entry into the nursing program. If selected, the reentry student would begin the first semester of nursing courses. All reentry students must have skill revalidation at the beginning of the semester. Science courses taken 7 years earlier must be repeated prior to reapplication.

Dismissal


Students may be dismissed from a nursing course and/or the nursing program for any of the reasons located in the Associate of Science in Nursing Degree Program Student Orientation Handbook located here: http://web.lsue.edu/docs/Nursing/2016-2017-student-handbook.pdf.

Requirements for Readmission


A student whose enrollment is interrupted, either voluntarily or by compulsion, or who fails to earn a grade of “C” in a required nursing course may be considered for readmission to the Nursing Program provided that the student is in good academic standing as defined in the “University Regulations ” section of the LSU Eunice catalog. However, in no circumstances will a student be considered for readmission when the student has earned more than one “D”, “F”, “NC”, or “W” in required nursing courses. A student may only be readmitted to the nursing course in which they received the failing grade, provided re-entry is no more than two years from the last enrollment in the failed nursing course.

Persons wishing to re-enter the LSU Eunice Nursing Program must submit a written application to the Division of Health Sciences and Business Technology by April 1 for re-entry in the Fall semester and November 1 for the Spring semester. A student will be considered for readmission only when there is clear evidence of his or her potential to complete the requirements of the nursing curriculum. In reviewing such applications, special scrutiny will be given to (1) overall grade-point average, (2) previous performance in didactic and clinical nursing courses, and (3) grades earned in the behavioral and biological sciences. Students with previous credit in required nursing courses who are readmitted into the LSU Eunice Associate of Science in Nursing Degree Program must have nursing skill performance validation prior to entering the semester of readmission. The overall financial and personnel resources available to the Nursing Program will also be a consideration in readmission decisions. Submitting an application for readmissions does not guarantee acceptance into the nursing program.

Transfer Nursing Students


Students who wish to transfer with nursing credits are subject to the “Requirements for Readmission”, “Louisiana State Board of Nursing’s Criteria for Enrollment in a Clinical Nursing Course”, “and “Retention/Progression Guidelines” specified above. Nursing credits will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Students requesting transfer into the Nursing Program must:

  1. Arrange a personal interview with the Nursing Program Director.
  2. Provide a transcript of all previous college work at the time of the interview.
  3. Submit a course description and course content from completed nursing courses at the time of the interview.
  4. Submit a Letter of Good Standing from prior nursing program(s). This letter from the administrative head of the prior program(s) should be mailed directly to the Nursing Program Director, to be received by the time of the interview.
  5. Have earned a minimum grade of “C” in required nursing courses and have enrolled in nursing course(s) only once.
  6. Have completed preferably, a minimum of 9 hours of required prerequisite science/math courses at LSU Eunice.
  7. Submit transcripts from all previously attended universities or colleges to the Office of Admissions for evaluation and the applicant must be classified as fully admitted prior to selection to the Nursing program or the application is considered invalid.
