**Students who begin the Traditional Nursing program as freshmen are required to take a one-credit Freshman Seminar (ITDY 101) in their first semester. As this course is NOT considered a Liberal Arts course, these students will end up with at least 121 credits at program completion.
For students majoring in Nursing in the Traditional Undergraduate Program, all courses listed above as Required Nursing Courses (NURS) are used in the determination of the grade point average in the major.
Note: If the optional NURS 498H and NURS 496 courses are taken, they will be included in the GPA calculation.
For purposes of determining whether the requirement to complete at least half of the major courses at St. John Fisher College has been met, all courses listed above as Required Nursing Courses are used.
Petition for Graduate Study
Current St. John Fisher nursing students may petition to complete graduate-level coursework during their senior year of undergraduate study. This offers an accelerated approach for qualified traditional baccalaureate students who wish to pursue the Master of Science in Advanced Practice Nursing degree. The accelerated program allows specific graduate-level courses to be taken and for one course to fulfill a designated undergraduate requirement. This shortens graduate degree requirements without compromising didactic and clinical learning experiences.
Note: Approval to take graduate courses does not guarantee admission to the M.S. program in Advanced Practice Nursing. Students who wish to continue their graduate studies at Fisher must complete the application process for graduate admissions. Please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions for more information.
Students beginning their study of Nursing at St. John Fisher follow the curriculum of the Traditional Nursing B.S. Program. They may petition to take courses in the graduate program after all 300-level undergraduate courses have been completed with a GPA in Nursing of 3.30 or higher, by submitting the Petition for Graduate Courses [pdf] form. Application deadline for graduate courses is July 1 for fall admission and January 1 for spring admission. Students interested in an accelerated program should consult with their advisors and the Graduate Program Director during their junior year at St. John Fisher College. Approved traditional baccalaureate students take:
Either GNUR 512 Health Care, Economics, and Policy (4) –OR– GNUR 518 Advanced Practice in the Care of Families (3) is taken along with other required undergraduate nursing courses during the senior year. This course is posted as graduate credit, and there is no additional charge for this course as long as the student is full-time in the undergraduate B.S. Nursing program.
GNUR 529 Advanced Practice Nursing Roles and Leadership (2) is taken during the senior year. Students who successfully complete GNUR 529 will not take NURS 446 Nursing Leadership and Patient-Centered Care III (3). The graduate course is posted as undergraduate credit, and there is no additional charge for this course as long as the student is full-time in the undergraduate B.S. Nursing program. The graduate course is added to the student’s graduate transcript at the end of the first semester of graduate study at the Wegmans School of Nursing.
