In August 1985 Sharon Russell was dismissed from Salve Regina College just before her senior year of nursing education.
The reasons given for her dismissal focused on Russell's obesity and her inability to lose weight.
The issues raised by this case pose important questions that nursing programs and nurse educators must address.
This article explores the questions raised by Russell: (1) What constitutes substantial compliance with both academic and non-academic performance criteria in a contract between a student and an educational institution? (2) What duties to preserve the privacy interests of students may be imposed on programs and educators?
Ms Russell's case has been settled.
