Work Load and Grades

CEI Nursing Faculty Work Load Policy

Full Load is considered to be about 11-12 load hours. Each load hour equates to about 3 hours per week of work

Changes to workload policy must be approved by the Dean of Health and Human Services.

Grade Requirements:

There are Three Different Requirements which the student must achieve in order to pass nursing courses:
1. First – an overall percentage of 77% or above is required in each of the nursing courses.
2. Second – students must earn a 77% average on the test component of each nursing course.
3. **Third – students must pass the clinical/skills component of each course, regardless of grade in the theory component. Some courses are Pass or Fail others require a 77% or higher average. A failure for the clinical component will result in a failure in the course.

Grade expectations for letter grades assigned:
