Policy Regarding Encumbered Registered Nurse (RN) Licensure

 
  1. Students admitted to the Graduate Programs in Nursing must have an unencumbered RN License.
  2. If a student experiences an encumbered license (such as a RN license with stipulations or restrictions) during their graduate studies, he/she must notify the appropriate Assistant/Associate Dean for their Program immediately upon receipt of the encumbrance. The student will provide the appropriate Assistant/Associate Dean with a copy of the Agreed Order.
  3. Students may be allowed to take non-clinical courses with an encumbered license.
  4. Students will not be allowed to take clinical courses with an encumbered license.
  5. The student will notify the appropriate Assistant/Associate Dean of their Program when the student’s license becomes unencumbered and provide a copy of the Board of Nursing’s notification letter.
  6. Failure to notify the appropriate Assistant/Associate Dean of their Program of an encumbered RN license will be considered academic misconduct and be treated as such.
