NU 611 Clinic Decision Making
This is a mid-program assessment of your knowledge of concepts that are key for success in the clinical environment.
Additionally, your performance on this exam provides you and the program faculty with valuable and predictive information about your success on the FNP certification exam which you will take at the end of the program.
Students who score at or above the benchmark score will be deemed as proficient and may progress to population-based clinical courses and are excused from any directed remediation.
Students who score below the benchmark score will be deemed to not be proficient and will not be permitted to progress into in any population-based clinical courses.
Students who are not successful on the exam on the first testing opportunity will be assigned an ‘Incomplete’ for NU 611 and required to complete an individualized remediation process before the exam can be taken a second time. Remediation will include Herzing extending your subscription to the Assessment Qbank so that you will be able to complete your individualized remediation plan based on your results. It is estimated that the minimum amount of time to complete the remediation process will be approximately 20 hours.
If unsuccessful on the second exam attempt, you will receive a failing grade for the NU611 course and an academic advising process will be instituted. As a part of that process your program schedule will be revised for you to retake NU611 (if no previous course failures).
