To whom it may concern,

On Friday March 9th, Nursing 235 students took exam 2. There was no preliminary grade or test review given on that day. After reviewing the student handbook, we as a student body feel that the college should honor its policy regarding test review. On page 29 of the Charity School of Nursing Handbook- under CSN testing policy, the Philosophy of Test Review states these items:

  • “ The faculty of the School of Nursing believes that test review can be a valuable learning experience for the student. Test review provides an oppourtunity for the student to review the questions on the test and clarify material so that safe, effective nursing care can be given. It is also a means for the student to correct misinformation which led to an incorrect choice. Test review as a learning experience rests upon several premises.”
    • “Test review is not used in place of regular class attendance.”
    • “Students will not remove the actual copies of the test questions in any form from the room.”
    • “Participants in the test review exhibit regard for others’ ideas and thoughts.”
    • “Students are encouraged to obtain feedback to enhance their understanding of a subject.”
  • “Faculty will have the exam with rationales available for the student to review.”
  • “Any student found cheating during an exam will receive a grade of zero and may be subject to referral to the judicial process.”

In addition, page 30 of the Charity School of Nursing Handbook (under Test Review

Procedure) states,

Also, page 29 of the Charity School of Nursing Handbook (under CSN Testing Policy)


We, the students, do formally request a judicial process of those students found cheating

on Nursing 235 exam 1. We understand that everyone makes mistakes, but we are Level IV students who have worked too hard to have our rights taken away due to the mistakes of a few. We need to ensure that our grades are accurate and no technical errors have occurred. We need to see the rationales in order to know what the correct choice is on the NCLEX and in our professional careers.
