6PN Curricular ProjectSummer 2011: Changes in Approval of Nursing ProgramsNovember 2011: PN Directors MeetingNational Accreditation16/23 programs were over 40 creditsMany between 50 and 60 creditsTime…Money…Resources
7Summer 2012 - MnSCU Funded $100,000 through HealthForce MN for the PN Curricular Project 1. Developed a Statewide Curricular Committee2 faculty per campusPlus industry partners2. Regional Curriculum CommitteeOne faculty representative from each region in Minnesota
8PN Collaborative work began at the August 2012 Workshop with Linda Caputi Workshop with Linda Caputi on curriculum designCommittees met and progress project began!Chose ATI Curricular Mapping Program to Map the Curriculum
9Mapped Curriculum Student Learning Outcomes NCLEX Test Plan NLN Model ACEN (NLNAC) ReportsProblems with Changes….Syllabi…
10Examples of ACEN comments from Candidacy, Site Visit Reports, etc. Course objectives are measureable but do not clearly connect to the SLO’s.
11The program needs to clearly demonstrate the progression of the student learning outcomes across the curriculum.
12The programs have identified the course objectives as cognitive, affective or psychomotor. However, neither the tables nor the abbreviated syllabi actually label the objectives in the respective learning domains.
13We developed 8 Concepts and Student Learning Outcomes which were surveyed by 340 education and industry partners.8 Concepts withDefinitions8 Student Learning OutcomesFrom the 8 concepts.
14Surveyed 340 Partners Industry Partners 53% Long Term Care 22% Staff Nurses19% Administrators9% Hospital Setting3% Clinic setting14% Practical Nursing Instructors14% Associate Degree Instructors6% StudentsWith Feedback changes were made.

28Evidence that Student Learning Outcomes established from National Standards Essentials Book Page 83Table 9
29This table shows evidence to ACEN (formerly NLNAC) that our Student Learning Outcomes and Role Specific Competencies are derived from National Standards.NLNAC or ACEN Standard 4.1:The curriculum incorporates established professional standards, guidelines, and competencies, and has clearly articulated student learning outcomes and program outcomes consistent with contemporary practice.
30The Curriculum has 8 Professional Concepts Informatics/Technology p. 83Managing Care: P. 84Patient/Relationship Centered Care: P. 86Nursing Judgment/Evidence Based Care: P. 85Professional Identity and Behaviors: P 87Quality Improvement: P. 88Safety: P. 89Teamwork and Collaboration: P. 90
31Professional Concepts were Defined Each conceptNational definitionsEssential to this concept:leveled the definition to the PN Scope of Practice.Student Learning Outcomes developed from each Professional Concept2 to 3 Role Specific Competency statementsLeveled to the PN Level
32Each Role Specific Competency was developed around the NLN Apprenticeships. KnowledgePractice Know HowEthical ComportmentNLN Professional Identify: Assess how one’s personal strengths and values affect one’s identity as a nurse and one’s contributions as a member of the health care team.

Reflective questions, papers and journalingAssist the student to identify values that influence their role as a nurse.Verbs such as: Value – Appreciate – RespectStudents reflect on the value of the competencies in their practiceas well as demonstrate the value in their practice.
