This petition is for DSC ADN program Students who would like to see the program credit hours increased to a minimum of 12 credit hours in order for students to receive Full Time Student Financial Aid Benefits.

Currently, DSC ADN students are not receiving Full Time Financial Aid Benefits due to the fact that each semester is logged as either 10 or 11 credit hours.

The typical calculation of credits to hours in American Colleges is One Classroom Hour = 1 Credit Hour. Each semester, students spend an average of 20-25 hours per week in class lectures, labs, and clinicals. In order to be successful in the ADN program, students need to spend between 10-30 hours a week studying course material in order to pass the extremely difficult exams required to prepare them for the NCLEX.

This program is a Full Time commitment and many students end up struggling financially because they have to leave their jobs or cut their work hours in order to attend class, and make time for studying.

As Student Nurses, we are learning to be advocates for ourselves and others; this petition is meant to serve as the advocacy for the wellness of current and future DSC ADN students.
