OKLAHOMA BOARD OF NURSING STATEMENT The University of Central Oklahoma is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. Graduates of this state-approved program are eligible to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for (registered or practical) nurses. Applicants for Oklahoma licensure must meet all state and federal requirements to hold an Oklahoma license to practice nursing. In addition to completing a state-approved nursing education program that meets educational requirements and successfully passing the licensure examination, requirements include submission of an application for licensure, a criminal history records search, and evidence of citizenship or qualified alien status. Applicants for practical nurse licensure must also hold a high school diploma or a graduate equivalency degree (G.E.D.) [59 O.S & 567.6]. To be granted a license, an applicant must have the legal right to be in the United States (United States Code Chapter 8, Section 1621). In addition, Oklahoma law only allows a license to be issued to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and legal permanent resident aliens. Other qualified aliens may be issued a temporary license that is valid until the expiration of their visa status, or if there is no expiration date, for one year. Applicants who are qualified aliens must present, in person, valid documentary evidence of: 1. A valid, unexpired immigrant or nonimmigrant visa status for admission into the United States; 2. A pending or approved application for asylum in the United States; 3. Admission into the United States in refugee status; 4. A pending or approved application for temporary protected status in the United States; 5. Approved deferred action status; or 6. A pending application for adjustment of status to legal permanent resident status or conditional resident status. The Board has the right to deny a license to an individual with a history of criminal background, disciplinary action on another health-related license or certification, or judicial declaration of mental incompetence [59 O.S ]. These cases are considered on an individual basis at the time application for licensure is made, with the exception of felony convictions. An individual with a felony conviction cannot apply for licensure for at least five years after completion of all sentencing terms, including probation and suspended sentences, unless a presidential or gubernatorial pardon is received [59 O.S & 567.6]. 9

13 UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA Department of Nursing Faculty Handbook SECTION 1: MISSION, PHILOSOPHY, CORE CURRICULAR STRANDS AND STUDENT LEARING OUTCOMES 1.1 MISSION The mission of the University of Central Oklahoma, Department of Nursing is to provide transformative educational experiences that promote a culture of excellence in the art and science of nursing. The traditional undergraduate, career advancement, and graduate programs offer dynamic curricula built on a foundation of multi-disciplinary research and scholarly practice that are relevant, futuristic, and responsive to health and health care trends. Graduates are lifelong learners prepared to practice with integrity and compassion while enhancing the health of diverse persons and communities. Revised: May, PHILOSOPHY Within the framework of the mission statements of the University of Central Oklahoma, College of Mathematics and Science, and the Department of Nursing, the faculty is committed to the following beliefs. The faculty holds the following beliefs about recipients of care, health, environment, nursing, and nursing education. Recipients of Care Recipients of care may be viewed as individuals, members of a family, community, and society. These recipients are in constant, mutual interaction with the environment, both affecting the environment and being affected by it. Every individual is a unique, holistic being who has dignity and worth. Central to the uniqueness of each individual is the freedom of choice and accountability for choices made. Individuals have a right to seek optimal health in a variety of settings and to receive competent nursing care that is congruent with their culture, beliefs, and needs. Families are groups of individuals who identify themselves as a social unit. Individuals and families interact, communicate, and are interdependent with society. Communities and societies are integrated systems that unite groups from various cultures on the basis of shared beliefs, customs, values, and activities. 13

14 Health Health includes components of physical, mental, and/or social well-being, not just absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 1948). Health is a continually changing state influenced by biological, psychological, spiritual, cultural, economic, and sociological factors. Recipients of care actively participate in defining and achieving health. Environment Environment consists of internal and external influences that are the context of everyday life. Internal factors include physical, psychosocial, developmental, and spiritual dimensions. External factors include geopolitical, physical, psychosocial, cultural, historical, and economic aspects of the social world. Health is impacted by the interrelationship of the environment and the recipient of care. Nursing Professional nursing is a caring, dynamic process that provides compassionate, respectful, and patient-centered care. The nurse accepts responsibility for reflection and professional growth, and is accountable for his/her nursing practice. The nurse functions in a leadership role by actively engaging in community and professional efforts to improve the quality of health care and to meet the changing health needs of society. Nursing Education Nursing education is the integration of knowledge and experience through which an individual develops his potential and establishes values. Transformative learning is a holistic process that places students at the center of their own active and reflective learning experiences. Faculty facilitates learning by creating an environment in which change and growth can occur. Faculty recognizes the individual needs of the learner and creates a variety of learning experiences that provide continuity and increasing complexity in clinical reasoning/judgment. Professional nursing education takes place in an institution of higher learning to ensure both a liberal education and knowledge specific to nursing. Baccalaureate education provides a foundation for evidence-based practice, acquiring clinical reasoning and judgment, identifying community health needs, developing leadership behaviors, and pursuing graduate study. Revised: May,

15 1.3 CORE CURRICULAR STRANDS 1. Patient-Centered Care (integrates Caring, Advocacy, Human Development, Culture) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Provide compassionate, respectful, and non-judgmental patient-centered care to maximize human potential and recognize the individual, family, or community as a partner in health care decisions. Definition: Recognize the individual or designee as the source of control and full partner in providing compassionate and coordinated care based on respect for the individual s preferences, culture, values, and needs. Includes actions to identify developmental stage, individual, family, and community differences; relieve pain and suffering; coordinate continuous care; listen to, clearly inform, communicate with, and educate patients, families, and community members; share decision making and management; and advocate for and participate effectively in activities that create environments to promote health, prevent disease, and protect individuals, families, communities, and society. (AACN Baccalaureate Essentials p. 39, IOM, 2003, AACN Public Health, 2013, QSEN, 2007). 2. Clinical Reasoning and Judgment (Integrates Nursing Process, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, Decision Making) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Use clinical reasoning and judgment in the provision of safe, quality care that promotes the health of individuals, families, communities, and society. Definition: Clinical reasoning is the application of nursing process that involves problem solving, decision-making, and critical thinking. The nurse uses clinical reasoning as situations change to reach clinical judgments regarding the care of individuals, families, communities and society (AACN, 2014, Benner, Sutphen, Leonard & Day, 2010). 3. Evidence Based Practice (Integrates Research, Accountability) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Use evidence based practice and synthesize knowledge, concepts and theories from nursing, liberal arts, and sciences to create innovative solutions, make practice decisions, and enhance the profession of nursing. Definition: Evidence-based practice: the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values to facilitate clinical decision making (Sackett, Straus, Richardson, Rosenburg & Haynes; 2000, p. 1). 15

16 4. Communication (Integrates Relationships, Diversity, Culture, Trust, Conflict Resolution, Community Engagement) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Communicate effectively with individuals, families, colleagues, and community members, fostering shared decision-making, acknowledging diversity, and establishing mutual respect to improve health outcomes. Definition: Communication is an interactive process of exchanging ideas, thoughts, information, or feelings between two or more people. Communication may be verbal or nonverbal and includes the use of documents or messages. The nurse incorporates mutual respect, harmonized goals, a supportive environment, access to appropriate clinicians, provision of necessary information, a system of regular feedback, transparency and full disclosure in communication with individuals, families, colleagues and community membranes (IOM, 2011). 5. Information and Technology (Integrates Informatics, Communication) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Use information and technology in a legal and ethical manner to communicate, manage knowledge, mitigate error, support decision-making, and increase health literacy of individuals and families. Definition: Information and technology include the resources, devices and methods required to optimize safety, communication and the use of information to support decision-making (AACN, 2008, QSEN, 2007). 6. Systems Based Practice (Integrates the concepts of connectedness, adaptability, flexibility, non-linearity, context) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Identify the larger context of factors that influence health and healthcare systems to improve health outcomes. Definition: Systems thinking is the body of knowledge and tools that allow the nurse to manage whatever environmental and system resources exist for individuals, families, communities and society, within or across healthcare and non-healthcare systems. Healthcare providers evaluate the effect of single or multiple systems, make recommendations for change, and incorporate system resources to promote safety, provide cost-conscious, effective care, and improve health outcomes. (AACN, 2014, ACGME, 2014). 7. Quality Improvement & Safety (Integrates Legal & Ethical considerations for practice) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Implement interventions based on legal and ethical obligations to mitigate the risk of harm related to individual, organizational, and community factors in a variety of situations. 16

17 Definition: Quality Improvement is the use of data to monitor the outcomes of care processes and use improvement methods to design and test changes to continuously improve the quality and safety of health care systems. Safety is the minimization of risk of harm to patients and providers through both system effectiveness and individual performance (QSEN, 2007). 8. Leadership (Integrates Legal and Ethical considerations for practice, Organizational Systems, Management practices, motivation, communication, advocacy, policy, & finance) UCO Student Learning Outcome: Use leadership skills to influence the knowledge, attitudes, values, and behaviors of individuals, groups, organizations, and communities to facilitate goal attainment. Definition: Leadership is a process of social influence, which maximizes the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal (Kruse, 2013, para. 11). Effective leadership integrates legal principles, integrity, ethical behavior, healthcare policies (financial and regulatory), advocacy for others, motivational principles, organizational systems theory, management principles, and awareness of financial considerations. 9. Professionalism UCO Student Learning Outcome: Demonstrate professionalism through actions that reflect integrity, life-long learning, and self-reflection to meet professional standards and adapt to changes in future nursing practice. Definition: Professionalism is the consistent demonstration of core values evidenced by nurses working with other professionals to achieve optimal health and wellness outcomes in patients, families, and communities by wisely applying principles of altruism, excellence, caring, ethics, respect, communication, and accountability (Interprofessional Professionalism Measurement Group, 2008 as cited in AACN, p. 26). 17

18 10. Collaboration/Teamwork UCO Student Learning Outcome: Interact effectively with diverse healthcare professionals, exhibiting mutual respect, teamwork, and collaboration. Definition: Collaboration and teamwork is the ability to function effectively within nursing and inter-professional teams, fostering open communication, mutual respect, and shared decision-making to achieve quality patient-centered care (QSEN, 2007). Revised: May, STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES (SLOs) 1. Patient-Centered Care: Provide compassionate, respectful, and non-judgmental patient-centered care to maximize human potential and recognize the individual, family, or community as a partner in health and health care decisions 2.
