NURSING, ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (ASN) (70 HOURS)
Admission

Students are admitted into the ASN Program in the spring and fall terms. The Admissions Committee reviews all records of qualified applicants. Applicants receive a ranking based on measurable criteria (i.e., test scores, GPA, etc.). Deadline for filing application and all required admission documentation is May 30 for fall admission and Oct. 1 for spring admission.

Admission to the ASN Program is Completed in TWO steps:

STEP I
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 24 semester hours of college credit;
3.

submit Official admission test scores. The ASN program accepts a "Proficient Score" on the TEAS-V (Test of Essential Academic Skills)

  • The test must have been taken within the 2 years prior to the date of application for admission.
  • If the student submits TEAS-V scores (from exams taken twice during the 2 year period), the highest score will be considered. If more than 2 attempts are submitted, only the first two taken during the two year period would be considered.
4.
submit Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended;
5.
have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.5/4.0 scale on all college work attempted at the undergraduate level. If less than 24 SH of college work has been attempted, you must have a minimum 2.5/4.0 High School GPA or a GED with a score of 500; and
6.
be able to achieve certain core performance standards required for duties of the nursing profession (copy of standards available upon request).
 
When ENG 1101, PSY 2200, MTH 1112, BIO 3347 and BIO L347 have been completed with a grade of C or better, the student may proceed to step II.
 
STEP II
For admission to the ASN nursing course sequence (NSG 1131, NSG 1135, 1151, etc.), the student must:
1.
meet all admission requirements under Step I;
2.
submit the "Application to ASN Nursing Course Sequence" (by May 30 for fall semester admission and Oct. 1 for spring semester admission);
3.
have maintained an overall GPA of at least 2.5 on 4.0 scale on all college work attempted.
 
NOTE: If a student is attempting to transfer credit for nursing courses from another school of nursing (which must be NLNAC accredited), 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 or better in each required course.
  3. A student will be able to repeat a nursing course only one time to achieve a grade of C or better .
  4. A student may repeat only one ASN Program nursing course (with the exception of NSG 2204, Nutrition); therefore, a second D or F in any ASN nursing course (with the exception of NSG 2204, Nutrition) will result in automatic dismissal from the Program.
  5. Student must make 85% 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).
  7. Students who drop, fail or withdraw from NSG 1131 must reapply by following Step II of the ASN admission process (i.e., these students will be included with the new pool of applicants in the selective admission process and should understand that they may or may not be selected for a slot in the new class);
  8. Re-enrollment in a nursing course will depend on space availability.

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).

Location
The ASN program is located at 340 Montgomery Street, Montgomery, AL, 36104. The clinical facilities used for student learning experiences are located within an approximate 50-mile radius of Montgomery. Students are responsible for their transportation.

  4. Students who are planning to apply, or have applied but have not yet begun, the BSN Clinical Nursing Sequence may repeat only one 3300-4400 level nursing course from the required courses in the clinical nursing sequence; thereafter, a D or F in a 3300-4400 level nursing course will automatically disqualify the student from entering the BSN Clinical Nursing Sequence.
  5. Students who drop or fail a theory or clinical course with a co-requisite component must drop the co-requisite course.

In the history, social, and behavioral sciences block, social work students must choose the two social/behavioral science electives from ANT 2200, ECO 2251, POL 2241, PSY 2200, and SOC 2275.

Admission to the professional social work curriculum
Students must be admitted to the professional social work curriculum in order to enroll in advanced social work courses, beginning with SWK 3390. Students are encouraged to declare social work as a major during the freshman or sophomore year in order to ensure that they will meet the requirements for admission in a timely manner. Otherwise, the student may be out of sequence in meeting program requirements. Admission to the professional social work curriculum is usually accomplished during the first semester of the junior year concurrent with enrollment in SWK 2250, which precedes enrollment in SWK 3390 the following semester. To be eligible to apply for admission, each social work major must (1) have a minimum GPA of 2.25 (on a 4 point scale) in all college courses attempted and have completed a minimum of 30 semester hours, and (2) have completed ENG 1101 and 1102 or ENG 1103 and 1104; COM 2241 or 2243; HS 2240, 3310 and 3370; and SWK 2250 and 2280 (or be currently enrolled) with a grade of C or better. Procedures for applying for admission to the professional social work curriculum may be obtained from the Department of Social Work.

Progression in Social Work:

  1. Students are required to make a grade of C or better in each of the required departmental core and professional curriculum courses (all HS, RHB, and SWK prefixed courses.)
  2. Students may repeat only one 3000-4000 level departmental course; thereafter, a D or F in any 3000-4000 level departmental required course will result in automatic dismissal from the social work program.
  3. A student remains in good standing by maintaining, at a minimum, a 2.0 GPA in all course work taken and a 2.0 GPA in all required departmental and professional courses.
Pre-professional requirement:
