COLLEGE OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND HUMAN DEVELOPMENT


The College of Health, Education, and Human Development oversees academic programs offered by the School of Nursing; the School of Education; the Department of Public Health Sciences; the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management; the Department of Family and Youth Development; the National Dropout Prevention Center; and the Joseph F. Sullivan Center for Nursing and Wellness. Preparation of professional leaders in the health, education, nursing, recreation, park management, and tourism services is the primary focus of the College. The educational resources of Clemson's other colleges are integrated into these curricular areas, providing students with the breadth as well as the depth to be successful professionals within their chosen fields.

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION

The mission of the School of Education is to prepare outstanding, reflective practitioners in education and human resource development through the provision of diverse experiences in content, method, and research that empower professionals to be effective members of the communities in which they live and serve. The School of Education trains teachers, counselors, and leaders for the K?12 schools and training and development specialists for business and industry.

TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS

The School of Education embraces its conceptual framework of empowered professionals educating a diverse world. These professionals utilize the knowledge of curriculum, technology, assessment, and instructional/leadership/counseling strategies to effect learning for diverse populations. Clemson provides resources for courses and clinical experiences in method, research, and content knowledge which produce reflective practitioners who are knowledgeable, ethical, caring decision makers responding to local, state, and world needs.

The Teacher Education Programs prepare teachers, provide professional services to education in South Carolina, and carry out basic and applied research in education. Curricula are designed to provide a broad general education through liberal arts and science courses, develop depth of knowledge in the teaching area, gain an understanding of the historical, philosophical, and psychological backgrounds of American education, and acquire knowledge of and skill and experience in effective teaching techniques.

The Teacher Education Programs are accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for the preparation of educational personnel in South Carolina in Early Childhood, Elementary, and Special Education and secondary school programs in Agriculture, Technology Education, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, English, History and Geography, Political Science and Economics, and Psychology and Sociology.

Admission

Professional. Application to the professional level of a program will be processed during the term in which a student is to complete 60 semester hours of work. At that time, the student will be notified of his/her status by the College's Academic Advising Center. Prior to admission, the student must have passed all areas of the Praxis 1 Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST) and have a minimum cumulative grade-point ratio of 2.5.

Directed Teaching. A student shall apply to the field experience director prior to the semester in which directed teaching is to be scheduled. The following conditions must be met prior to registration for directed teaching: (1) admission to the professional level of a program; (2) completion of at least 95 semester hours; (3) a minimum cumulative grade-point ratio of 2.5.

Enrollment in Professional Courses

Enrollment in 400-level professional education courses is contingent upon admission to the professional level as described above. Any student who desires to enroll in education courses must meet the cumulative grade-point requirements established for education majors. A student who is denied admission may appeal to the Education Admissions Committee.

Graduation

To graduate, a student must have a score report for all state-mandated certification exams on file with the Academic Advising Center in the College of Health, Education, and Human Development. Students must pass all required Praxis II tests, excluding PLT (Principles of Learning and Teaching) before becoming a program completer and receiving recommendation for certification.

NURSING

Bachelor of Science

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Nursing prepares students for professional nursing practice in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, industry, clinics, and public health agencies. During the first two years, emphasis is on liberal arts and basic science courses arranged to provide a foundation for the nursing major. Junior and senior courses emphasize the study of nursing. Clinical nursing experiences, guided by the Nursing faculty, involve acute and community-based settings. Students are responsible for their own transportation to clinical laboratory experiences, which may extend throughout the Upstate.

Entrance Requirements

To facilitate admission of students who can achieve at an appropriate level in the program, admission is selective. Consideration is given to performance in secondary school and on the College Board Examination (SAT). Those seeking admission are advised to apply to the University early in the fall of the senior year in high school.

When space is available, a student may change majors into the School of Nursing with a 2.5 cumulative grade-point ratio.

Nursing majors are required to carry, throughout the clinical laboratory period, current and valid student nurses' professional liability insurance with minimum limits of liability of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $3,000,000 in aggregate. Documentation of such cov-erage must be provided to the Director of the School of Nursing. No student may participate in clinical learning activities without this insurance coverage.

To comply with clinical agency contract requirements and South Carolina law, students enrolled in nursing courses with a clinical laboratory must meet specific requirements listed in the School of Nursing Student Handbook.

The School of Nursing programs are accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, 350 Hudson St., New York, NY 10014; telephone (212) 989-9393, extension 451/153.
