Academic Integrity

Students enrolled in the College of Nursing are expected to follow the university’s policy for academic integrity including plagiarism and cheating. The policy may be found on this website. Nursing students are also expected to follow the guidelines of the NSNA Code of Ethics and Interpretive Statements from the National Student Nurses Association and the Code of Ethics for Nurses from the American Nurses’ Association  for professional conduct in and out of the classroom and in on and off campus clinical simulation experiences.

Nursing students must maintain high standards of honor in their academic and professional work. Violations of academic integrity may result in failure on a particular assignment, failure in a course, suspension or expulsion from the College or other penalties. Students may follow the College of Nursing’s appeal policy according to the Academic Bulletin depending on the issue.
