3 Assessment Report: RN BSN Program: Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing September, 2013 Brief Summary of the Assessment Plan for the BSN Introduction: This summary provides an abbreviated overview of the RN TO BSN assessment plan, and also attempts to focus the reader on aspects of the plan that will be addressed in this report. Assessments are necessary to evaluate learning and to measure outcomes. The new RN to BSN curriculum will be discussed, as well as, the new BSN Essentials that were used as a framework in the development of BSN curriculum. A consortium consisting of members representing all eight campuses within Indiana University were convened and lead by Dr. Sue Hendricks and Professor Lynda Narwold to design the new RN to BSN curriculum. This report includes data for the RN to BSN face to face program only. The online consortium is currently working on an independent evaluation process and will report results when available. Summary of Past Data Collection: Data was gathered for each RN to BSN cohort via a new portfolio model. This report serves both the Assessment Council and the Evaluation Committee, and therefore may contain elements that one or another group will not find useful. Instructor Level of Course Assessment: All courses are organized in a structure that includes the following in every syllabus: IUK BSN: OUTCOMES & Senior Level Competencies that Apply Directly S484 Course Objectives Learning activities Methods of Evaluation Faculty must articulate the course objectives as it relates to the BSN Essential Outcomes discussed later, what learning activities will occur to meet the objectives, and finally how will they evaluate learning. (See Appendix A) Students receive the syllabus on or before the first day of class and are aware of what they are to learn, activities that the instructor will plan and provide, and the method in which he/she will evaluate their learning. The RN to BSN director Lynda Narwold evaluates effectiveness of teaching by assessing outcomes from methods used for evaluation. The Assessment Plan for the RN BSN Overview: In the profession of nursing, guidelines for program goals and core competencies have been published by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, 2008). The accrediting agency for the IU Kokomo School of Nursing BSN, the CCNE, requires use of a guiding framework, such as the Essentials. Use of such a framework ensures that entry level nurses are

4 capable and prepared. By using such a framework, we prepare professional nurses to practice at the Baccalauraeate level (BSN), to practice in a variety of settings, and to address the professional development of nurses in North Central Indiana. One important way that professional development in our region is achieved is through the RN-BSN program. Our curriculum ties to the Essentials in the following ways: 1: The BSN graduate applies a solid base in liberal education in the practice of nursing. 2: The BSN graduate applies knowledge and skills in quality improvement and patient safety. 3: The BSN Graduate translates current evidence for best practices in the provision of nursing care. 4: The BSN Graduate applies knowledge and skills in information management and patient care technology in the delivery of nursing care. 5: The BSN Graduate understands the interplay between health care policy, finance, and regulatory environments on the nursing care situation. 6: The BSN Graduate collaborates with members of other disciplines to deliver effective patient centered care. 7: The BSN Graduate demonstrates clinical prevention and population health skills. 8: The BSN Graduate demonstrates professionalism and the values of altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity, and social justice. 9: The BSN Graduate practices nursing with individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations across the lifespan and across the continuum of health care environments, respecting the complexity of the care situation. By using such a framework, we prepare professional nurses to practice at an entry level (BSN), to practice in a variety of settings, and to address the professional development of nurses in North Central Indiana. Portfolio for Evaluation The portfolio is a mechanism used to validate that knowledge, skills meeting course and program outcomes, and course expectations have been acquired either through course related assignments or through methods occurring outside the classroom setting. Students are instructed to add to the portfolio every semester. The portfolio as a whole is evaluated in Pod 3. Since many parts of the portfolio are not easily amenable to an e portfolio format we have continued to use the hard copy format (from the student s perspective, many documents are only in hard copy and creating PDFs was too burdensome). We collect some assignments in e format, but the process of evaluating the portfolio is done with the hard copy notebook. A grading rubric is provided for overall evaluation of the portfolio, addressing appearance, completeness, and quality of the materials included and comparing them with the program outcomes. Every portfolio will be evaluated in terms of how well the student has demonstrated that he/she has met the BSN program outcomes. Hard copies of a few portfolios from each cohort may be requested to verify program outcome quality (retained as evidence). Student permission to retain a copy of the portfolio will be obtained. The following are instructions regarding the portfolio, along with the rubric for evaluation.

10 Evaluation Criteria for the Portfolio Please note: for evaluating the portfolio: Our benchmark is at 3 or more That is, the mean of all ratings across RN BSN students is 3 or more for each individual senior competency, and that the overall mean (of all the scores) for every individual student (100%) in the RN BSN program is 3 or more. For Each Criteria, we will use the following rubric: 4=Excellence Evident in Meeting BSN Outcome Evaluator easily finds evidence that is presented professionally; and Evidence presented shows that student has mastered the competency in a manner that suggests the best practice/exemplary practice; or Demonstrates high level of integration of knowledge, unusually strong insight. 3=Satisfactory Performance Evident in Meeting BSN Outcome Evaluator easily finds evidence that is presented professionally; and Evidence presented shows that the student has mastered the competency in a complete manner; or Demonstrates good integration of knowledge, insight. 2=Just Below Satisfactory Performance Evident in Meeting BSN Outcome Evaluator finds evidence only after searching the portfolio; or Evaluator finds that evidence is not presented in a professional manner; or Evidence presented shows some areas that are lacking with regard to achievement of the competency. 1=Unsatisfactory Performance Evident in Meeting BSN Outcome Evaluator is unable to find evidence pertinent to the competency; or Evidence presented does not show that the student addressed the competency in a relevant/reasonable manner (lacks attention to basic aspects of competency); or Evidence presented is found to be unsafe, unethical, or fraudulent. 4=Excellence Evident 3=Satisfactory Performance 2=Just Below Satisfactory. 1=Unsatisfactory Performance Rater assigns a numeric value to each category:

11 I. Graduate Survey: Near the close of the senior year, students complete a self report instrument in which they rate their own abilities in each of the student learning outcome areas. This scale includes several items per program goal, and is available on request. This is scaled a four point Likert scale, with 4=strongly agree, 3=agree, 2=disagree, and 1=strongly disagree. Since an important part of professional development is identifying one s own strengths and weaknesses and since our students engage in self rating across the curriculum, this is an appropriate measure. However, being self report, there is an issue of validity. Therefore, when possible, this measure is considered with other measures. Currently our benchmarks are set at achievement of a Mean of 3.0 or more in all areas. III. Alumni Survey: One year post graduation, RN BSN alumni are mailed a survey similar to the graduate survey though somewhat shorter, that includes self report items for every program goal. A similar Likert rating scale is used. Currently our benchmarks are set at achievement of a Mean of 2.0 or more in all areas. This survey is mailed yearly in August to previous graduates.

12 Characteristics of the RN BSN Class of 2013 Graduate Survey Results: This data was gathered just prior to completion of the program in August students started the RN-BSN program in the fall of Of that 68, eleven were male and forty nine were female. Four identified themselves as African American, 54 as white, one Hispanic, and two Asian. 68 of the original 68 graduated with a BSN in August of Healthcare experience and roles varied. The graduates worked in a variety of settings including; ICU, ER, Peds, OB, Med- Surg, Day Surgery, Rural access, and school nursing. The graduates also were composed of 73.8 % (N=45) staff nurse and 9.8% (=6) managers. An interesting note is the age range of this class, the youngest (26 years old) were born in 1986 and the oldest student (57 years old) was born in Alumni Survey Results: The alumni surveys are gathered one year after graduation. The data reflected below is reflective of the RN BSN class of NOTE: The survey has been sent out and data will be entered once surveys are returned. A revised version will be completed after data analyzed.
