ADN Progression Statement

The very nature of the profession of nursing requires that one be able to master the theoretical as well as the clinical components of the curriculum. In view of the fact that individuals providing nursing care may adversely affect the maintenance and quality of human life, the nursing faculty have established a progression policy. The progression policy is in each nursing syllabus and the nursing student handbook. A summary of the progression policy is as follows:

Students must successfully complete all required components as designated in each nursing course. The student may refer to each syllabus for details. Attendance at clinical is mandatory for progression. 


Students must make a “B” or better in all required nursing courses and a “C” or better in all required science courses and nutrition. Nursing students must maintain an overall 2.0 GPA or above on all non-science, non-nursing courses, to remain in the prescribed curriculum. A student making a “C” or below in one nursing course is automatically excluded from the Associate Degree Nursing Program and must apply for re-admission to the Holmes Community College Associate Degree Nursing Program if they wish to return.


ADN Admission Policy

The Associate Degree Nursing Program is a two-year program designed to provide educational opportunities to qualified students for a career in nursing. The program responds to the expanding health care needs of the community. The curriculum includes a balance of general education, nursing theory, and laboratory/clinical experience. Graduates receive an Associate of Applied Science degree (AAS). Graduates that meet the requirements of the State Board of Nursing are eligible to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. The Associate Degree Nursing Program is accredited by the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning of Mississippi and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN). The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. can be contacted at 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326 (www.acenursing.org).  Phone 404-975-5000, Fax: 404-75-5020 for specific program information.

Students who are accepted, but who have not had the following courses BIO 2514-Anatomy and Physiology I, BIO 2524-Anatomy and Physiology II, BIO 2924-Microbiology, FCS 1253/BIO1613 Nutrition, must take and successfully pass these courses with at least a grade C before beginning nursing classes.

Nursing students must meet the same general admission requirements as those required for all applicants to Holmes Community College. In addition, they must meet the requirement outlined below:

A student must have an ACT composite score of 15 if taken before October, 1989, or 18 if taken in October, 1989, or after. In order to apply to the Associate Degree Nursing Program, the student must have a 2.0 overall grade point average. 

The applicant must have an 18 or higher composite on the ACT with an 18 Reading subscore; a 17 Math subscore or have passed a 3-hour College Algebra or higher math course. For ACT scores before 10/28/89, please see the ACT Concordance Table under Academic Policies and Regulations in the HCC Bulletin. The number of students admitted is based on the number of nursing faculty. Standards for Accreditation of Schools of Nursing for the State of Mississippi require that total enrollment be limited to a maximum of fifteen students for each full-time or equivalent qualified nursing faculty member and that the student-faculty ratio in the clinical is no more than ten to one. The selection of those to be admitted is done using the Weighted Scale ADN Admission Policy. All applicants are ranked and are offered positions according to their score. Those applicants with the highest scores will be accepted.

Weighted Scale ADN Admission Policy
Enrollment in the ADN Program is limited; therefore. the selection of applicants is done on a point system.  Selection is academically competitive based on the following categories: ACT, plus college hours and college GPA from a regionally accredited school.

If two people have the same score, preference will be given according to their rating on the ACT or, these being equal, their GPA.

Notification of acceptance in the nursing program must come from the Associate Degree Nursing Program-not the Admissions Office.

An applicant must be in generally good health. Upon acceptance, satisfactory reports from a family physician will be required, as well as currently recommended immunizations, a drug screen, and TB skin test.  Applicants must also be CPR certified, and pass a criminal background check.

A letter of acceptance to the nursing program will be sent to each applicant selected for each class via email. It is required that an applicant confirm his/her intention to attend nursing classes for the year designated.  Failure to notify the Assistant Directors of the ADN program within a designated period of time indicates that the applicant no longer wishes to enter the program.

In addition to regular college fees, an associate degree nursing student will incur expenses for such items as uniforms, textbooks, supplies, insurance, and the expense of travel to some clinical sites.

Application
The application process is on-line through the Holmes Community College web site. Applications for the generic track for the fall and summer semesters are available on January 15. Applications for the spring semester track are available August 1. Applications are available for a limited time, usually thirty to forty-five days.

Prior Enrollment in Nursing Courses/ Readmission Limitations
Any student who has been previously enrolled in any nursing program must contact the Office of the Assistant Directors of the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Any student who has been withdrawn from, voluntarily withdrew from, or was unsuccessful in any nursing or practical nursing course has one opportunity for readmission. Any student with two (2) withdrawals or failures from any nursing or practical nursing course is not eligible for readmission.

LPN Readmissions
If an LPN in Option I or Option II is not successful in a nursing course, then he/she must apply for readmission to the program as a generic student.

Completion of the Program-Any student who failed a nursing course or who withdrew from a nursing course or was withdrawn from the nursing program may apply for readmission. The student must complete the course of study within 1 1/2  times the length of the program as set forth through regulations by the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning.

Practical Nursing Philosophy

The Holmes Community College Practical Nursing Program philosophy reflects the Holmes Community College statements of purpose and desire to provide interactive education and cultural opportunities to its students. The practical nursing faculty is dedicated to educating students in entry level skills to benefit the society and community in which they live by promoting the health and well being of all individuals. Fundamental to the philosophy are the faculty’s beliefs about humankind, health, practical nursing, education, and community service.

Humankind, the focus of nursing, is seen both as an individual and as a group. A human is a complex being with unique life experiences and diverse values, beliefs, and traditions that are derived from cultural and social experiences.

Health is the state of an individual within the environment. Well-being is the optimal state of health and is individually defined. Health includes all aspects of humankind: physical, psychological, social, and spiritual.

Practical Nursing is an art and an applied science based on a holistic nurse-client relationship.   Practical Nursing is an occupation that assists clients to attain, maintain, and regain optimal health. Practical Nursing provides care throughout the life cycle from conception to death.

Education is the impetus through which knowledge is gained. The Practical Nursing program provides access to affordable education and opportunity to improve the quality of life of the individual and community. State of health has the potential to affect the individual, the family, and the community. Therefore, Practical Nursing education focuses on both health promotion and disease treatment.

Inherent to the ideals of holistic nursing is the service to the individual and community. Practical Nursing invokes a passion to serve the community as a whole.
