Historical Background

The School of Nursing, founded in 1905, was the first nursing school in the Middle East. The five–year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, established in 1936, was replaced in 1964 by a four–year program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Students entering the school as sophomores graduate in three calendar years. The RN- BSN program was reactivated and launched in 2003. The Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) program was launched in 2003. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (BSN) and the MSN program are registered by the Department of Education of New York State, HEGIS codes 1203.00 and 1203.10, respectively. The BSN and MSN programs are accredited by CCNE, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, in the USA. The AUB School of Nursing is the first School of Nursing outside the US territories to be accredited by CCNE. The PhD program, HEGIS code 1203.12, was launched in the academic year 2018-2019. Effective September 2018, Hariri School of Nursing became the seventh independent faculty at AUB. The Rafic Hariri School of Nursing became the seventh independent Faculty at AUB on September 1, 2018.

Mission

The mission of the School of Nursing is to promote and maintain the highest educational standards of excellence, integrity, and professionalism in nursing, following the American model of nursing education and practice. The school aims to provide learning opportunities that will enable students to develop into competent nurses who, guided by ethical principles, respect cultural diversity while coordinating and delivering high–quality, compassionate nursing care in Lebanon and the region. The faculty believes education is an interactive process between faculty and students with both taking responsibility for active learning. The baccalaureate program, drawn primarily from the humanities, sciences, and caring disciplines, focuses on the use of nursing theory and research as a basis for practice. The master’s program focuses on preparing nurses for advanced nursing practice roles and is based on the use and generation of research–based knowledge to guide practice. The PhD program in Nursing Science aims to provide rigorous training for research careers in nursing and healthcare. The program is intended to produce research scientists who will make significant and original contributions to nursing practice and healthcare delivery. Nursing students at AUB learn to think critically, develop professional attitudes and leadership skills, and appreciate the value of life–long learning and freedom of speech.

Vision    

The Rafic Hariri School of Nursing aspires to become the leading school of nursing in Lebanon and the region and nationally and internationally recognized for excellence in education, research, and service.

The school is committed to offering cutting-edge, culturally-relevant and internationally recognized graduate and undergraduate education, fostering life-long learning and scholarship, developing leaders in nursing and health care, and attracting a competent and culturally diverse student body.

Academic Rules and Regulations    

For information on Academic Advisers, Categories of Students, Correct Use of Language, and Graduation with Distinction and High Distinction, see General University Academic Information in this catalogue.

Attendance

Classes and Laboratories

  • Students are expected to attend all classes, laboratories, and any other required activities. Absence by students, whether excused or not, from any class or laboratory session does not excuse them from their responsibility for the work done or from any announcements made during their absence.
  • Students who are absent from more than one fifth of the number of lectures of any course during a term lose all credit for the course.
  • Students may not be excused from laboratory and field requirements. All missed clinical and field requirements must be made up for. In case of repeated absences from clinical courses, over one fifth of the total hours, the student may be asked to drop the course.

Examinations and Quizzes

Students are not allowed to be absent from announced final examinations and quizzes unless they present an excuse considered valid by the coordinator of the course. The course coordinator may then require the student to take a makeup examination.

Students taking non–nursing courses from the Faculty of Medicine and other faculties of the university are required to follow the attendance regulations of that faculty.

Grading System

Refer to the grading system, under “General University Academic Information” section in the catalogue.

The passing grade for all nursing major courses is C+, except for NURS-203 (passing grade is D).

Incomplete Grades

  • Incomplete course work will be reported as an “I” followed by a numerical grade reflecting the evaluation of the student available at the end of the term. This evaluation is based on a grade of zero on all missed work.
  • To secure permission to complete the work for a course, a student must submit a valid excuse to the instructor of the course and the academic committee within two weeks from the date of the scheduled final exam for the course.
  • Students permitted to complete work for a course must do so within four weeks of the start of the next regular term. After the incomplete work is done and evaluated by the faculty member, a grade change will be considered by the Dean of the school (upon the recommendation of the program convener) and a new grade reported to the Office of the Registrar.
  • If no valid excuse is presented and the work, if permitted, is not completed within the time limits specified above, the “I” will be dropped and the numeric grade available becomes the final grade in the course.
  • For the purposes of averaging, the numeric grade is used until it is changed in accordance with the grading system set above.

Withdrawal from a Program

To maintain student status, a student must register every term, excluding the summer session, unless required by the program. Students who do not register can be readmitted provided they can complete the requirements within the time limit of the program.

Promotion

Students shall be promoted at the end of the summer session after completion of 30 or more credits beyond the requirements from the previous level. However, students who register in September and who lack 6 or fewer credits for completion of a class will be registered in the next higher class at the discretion of the academic committee. In order to be promoted, students must attain a minimum average of 68 (GPA: 2.0) at the end of the second regular term (sophomore year) and 70 (GPA: 2.2) in the following years. Promotion of BSN students based on earned credits. Sophomore (N2) nursing students are promoted to N3 if they complete 30 earned credits Junior (N3) nursing students are promoted to N4 if they complete 67 earned credits.

Placement on the Dean’s Honor List

To be placed on the Dean’s Honor List at the end of a term, a student must carry at least 12 credits of courses other than those repeated, not be on probation, have passed all the courses of the term, attained in all courses an overall average of 85 (GPA: 3.7) or be ranked in the top 10 percent of the class and have an overall average of 80 (GPA: 3.2), and not have been subjected to any disciplinary action within the university.

Graduation with Distinction and High Distinction

The School of Nursing follows the academic rules and regulations set by AUB to recommend the graduation of students with Distinction and High Distinction. For further details, see the section on General University Academic Information on page 50 of this catalogue.

Failures and Deficiencies

Placement on Probation

A student will be placed on probation for any of the following reasons:

  • If the student fails 6 or more credits at the end of a term
  • and/or if the student does not attain the minimum required term average of 65 (GPA: 1.7) for the first regular term of BSN II or 68 (GPA: 2.0) for the second regular term of BSN II, or 70 (GPA: 2.2) for the following years.

These regulations do not apply to part-time students until they have completed at least 12 credits. For part-time students, a term is defined as consecutive courses totaling 12 credits.

Removal from Probation

Action to remove probation at the end of a term will be taken provided the full-time student meets the following requirements:

  • passes all courses taken during the term,
  • achieves the minimum required average (GPA) for that term,
  • and achieves the minimum yearly average (GPA) required.

Repeating Courses

A student may repeat any course with the consent of the adviser and course coordinator.

  • All required courses that a student fails must be repeated. No course may be taken more than three times.
  • When a course is repeated, the highest grade obtained will be considered in the calculation of the Overall(GPA).
  • A student who fails or withdraws from a course may be delayed from graduating.

Repeating the Year

The academic committee may allow a student to repeat the year if the student

  • fails in one third or more of the credit load attempted during that year,
  • fails to remove probation within two terms,
  • or fails to attain the minimum yearly average (GPA).

A student repeating the year must register for a full load and repeat all courses in which the student has scored below the minimum requirement for that year.

Dismissal from the BSN Program

A student may be dismissed by vote of the faculty upon the recommendation of the academic committee in any of the following cases:

  • failure to remove probation within two terms
  • failure in one-third or more of the load attempted during that year and failure to attain the minimum yearly average (GPA)
  • failure to satisfy the requirements of a repeated year
  • not making satisfactory academic progress, having not shown sufficient professional promise, or having behaved in a manner below the norms expected by the school

Students who are dropped from the program will be placed as Majorless for two consecutive regular terms to secure a transfer to another major. Students who fail to transfer within the required time will be dismissed from the Hariri School of Nursing, i.e from the university.

  • “failure to meet clinical requirements as stipulated in the nursing courses syllabi”
  • “Dismissal from the BSN program”
  • “Failure to satisfy the requirements of the repeated year”

Application for Readmission

When, in accordance with university regulations, a student is dropped, the implication is that the student is not qualified to continue her/his education at the School of Nursing. Consideration for readmission is given for one of the following reasons:

  • if the student was not able to do her/his work efficiently because of health reasons (in such cases, the school relies on a medical report from the university physician)
  • if the adviser of the student or a faculty member or administrative official of the university knows of certain family problems that may have influenced the academic achievement of the student
  • if, after spending one or two years at another institution, the student is able to present a satisfactory record and recommendation

Ordinarily, supporting documents for the first two reasons must be presented within 30 days after the student is dropped from the school, but in exceptional cases, this presentation may be made at the beginning of the following regular term.

If a student is on probation and leaves the university after the tenth week of the term, the academic committee will decide whether the student will be allowed to return to the university.

Disciplinary Action

A student engaging in academic misconduct, such as cheating on examinations or plagiarism, will be referred to the Student Affairs Committee and the Dean.
