7 Introduction This booklet introduces you to the School of Nursing at Ivy Tech Community College and contains information related to nursing program requirements and policies. Students interested in applying to the School of Nursing must read this information carefully and must review the Information Session on-line at or attend an on-campus Nursing Information Session prior to applying for admission in the ASN or PN programs. History The Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program was first offered in Lafayette beginning in The Practical Nursing (PN) program was first established in the early 1970s in the Bloomington region.

8 Purpose The purpose of the programs is to provide education leading to a Technical Certificate in practical nursing or an Associate of Science in Nursing degree, including career mobility for Paramedics and Licensed Practical Nurses. Upon successful completion of the program, the graduates of the Practical Nursing Program are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-PN examination, which is required to obtain state licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse, and graduates of the Associate of Science in Nursing are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-RN examination, which is required to obtain state licensure as a Registered Nurse. While the theoretical component of nursing education takes place at the College, clinical practice, an essential part of nursing education, takes place in the health care setting under the supervision and direction of experienced and credentialed nurse educators. Nursing students have the educational opportunities and auxiliary services of the college offered to all members of the student body. Philosophy The School of Nursing of Ivy Tech utilizes the metaparadigms of individual, environment, health, and nursing to organize and unify the curricula. Concepts related to these overarching themes are infused throughout the curricula. These concepts include professionalism, leadership, professional communication, nursing process for patient centered care, interdisciplinary collaboration, safety, and patient education. Further, the concepts of student, educator, and nursing education are defined by our beliefs about the interrelationships between these overarching themes. Individual Individuals are unique and complex organisms, with integrated physiological, psychosocial, cultural, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions, all of which are in a continuous state of change. Individuals are endowed with dignity, rights, responsibility and power of choice, which facilitate self-awareness and interactions with others, and the environment. The individual s ability to meet needs is enhanced by awareness, perception, decision-making, and motivation for learning and applying knowledge. Environment The external environment is all that exists physically external to the individual, including other individuals. The internal environment is all that is within the complex individual and is influenced by individual genetic make-up and response to changes that occur as a result of both internal and external factors. The individual and the environment are in constant, dynamic interaction. The individual interaction in the environment should be guided by principles of ethical conduct. Spring 2015 Version Updated 07/01/2014 8

9 Nursing Nursing is an art and science focused on the ethical, culturally competent, and holistic care of an individual. Prevention of illness and the maintenance, promotion and restoration of health, as well as the support of death with dignity are integral to nursing care. The nurse-patient interaction is a purposeful collaboration that requires critical thinking, interpersonal involvement, and communication skills central to the establishment of a caring, therapeutic relationship. The patient is defined as an individual, family, group, or community that is in need of nursing care. The nursing process provides a methodology of progressive scientific problem solving and critical thinking by which the nurse can provide care. Nursing care is delivered in accordance with the role differentiation of the Licensed Practical Nurse and the Registered Nurse in accordance with the Indiana Nurse Practice Act. Health Health is a dynamic state, unique to each individual, relative to the wellness-illness continuum. Health is more than the absence of illness; it is the optimal functioning of the individual physiologically, psychosocially, culturally, intellectually, and spiritually. The individual response to internal and external environmental factors influences awareness, perception, decision-making, and motivation for healthseeking behaviors. Professionalism Professionalism is the accountable and responsible behavior of the nurse that incorporates legal and ethical principles and compliance with standards of nursing practice. Leadership Leadership is the process by which nurses use a set of skills that directs and influences others in the provision of individualized, safe, quality patient care. Leadership activities include delegation and supervision and are guided by the differentiated roles of licensed practical nurses and the registered nurses. Professional Communication Communication in nursing is an interactive process through which there is an exchange of information that may occur verbally, non-verbally, in writing, or through information technology. Those who may be included in this process are the nurse, patient, significant support person(s), other members of the healthcare team, and community agencies. Effective communication demonstrates caring, compassion, and cultural awareness, and is directed toward promoting positive outcomes and establishing a trusting relationship. Therapeutic communication is an interactive verbal and non-verbal process between the nurse and patient that assists the patient to cope with change, develop more satisfying interpersonal relationships, and integrate new knowledge and skills. Spring 2015 Version Updated 07/01/2014 9

10 Nursing Process for Patient Centered Care Use of the nursing process includes assessment, diagnosis, planning, intervention and evaluation activities aimed at providing the provision of caring and compassionate, culturally sensitive care that is based on a patient s physiological, psychological, sociological, spiritual, and cultural needs, preferences, and values. Interdisciplinary Collaboration Interdisciplinary collaboration involves the delivery of patient care, in partnership with multidisciplinary members of the health care team, to achieve continuity of care and positive patient outcomes. Safety Safety entails the minimization of risk factors that could cause injury or harm while promoting quality care and maintaining a secure environment for patients, self, and others. Patient Education Patient education is the provision of health-related education to patients that will facilitate their acquisition of new knowledge and skills, adoption of new behaviors, and modification of attitudes. Student The student learner is an individual with integrated physiological, psychosocial, cultural, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions. The student brings to the educational process lifelong learning that has occurred as a result of environmental diversity and life experiences. Each student enters the learning process with unique strengths, learning needs, and learning styles. Student learning is influenced by both the internal and external environments. Through active participation in the educational process, the student will assimilate the knowledge necessary to apply the art and science of nursing to provide collaborative, safe, ethical, culturally competent, and holistic care. This includes the development of interpersonal skills, communication skills, caring therapeutic relationships, critical thinking, and the use of scientific principles to guide nursing practice. The student is empowered to engage in health promotion through the enhancement of awareness, perception, decision-making, and motivation for learning and the application of knowledge. The student is accountable for self-direction, independent study, and self-evaluation. Educator The educator is an individual with integrated physiological, psychosocial, cultural, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions. Embracing the values that shape the art and science of nursing, the educator models the caring attitudes and behaviors necessary to provide collaborative, safe, ethical, culturally competent, and holistic care. The educator reinforces the principles of health promoting behaviors. Spring 2015 Version Updated 07/01/

11 The educator creates a learning environment, based upon diverse professional and educational experiences, which provides for differences in individual learning needs. As a facilitator of learning, the educator utilizes a multi-sensory approach in presenting content, encouraging critical thinking and problem solving, promoting independence and self-directed learning. Nursing Education Process The nursing curricula at Ivy Tech are built on the foundation that learning is a dynamic lifelong growth process and that education is ongoing and continuous. Nursing education is a systematic endeavor to facilitate change through knowledge, practice, and experiences proceeding from simple to complex. Furthermore, there must be collaboration among the student, the educator, the College, and the community at large. Learning is facilitated when concepts are presented sequentially to provide continuity and to express coherent relationships. Correlation between theory and practice promotes an optimal learning environment by combining cognitive, affective, and psychomotor components of the desired behavior. The nursing curricula allow the student to determine the career track, which meets his/her individual needs, and provide a seamless transition between paramedic, practical nursing, and associate degree nursing. Nursing education assists the student to grow personally and to demonstrate the attributes of professional responsibility and accountability. Curricular experiences assist students to define the role of both the practical nurse and the associate degree nurse, and provide opportunities for students to acquire and broaden their knowledge base in nursing and interdisciplinary health promotion. The curricula incorporate concepts directed toward promoting, maintaining and restoring health, and supporting death with dignity. The nursing process is included throughout the curricula as the foundation for critical thinking and decision-making. The curricula will prepare graduates for entry-level positions. Role differentiation will be defined throughout the curricula. Complexity of coursework and the expected outcomes will increase sequentially to provide knowledge essential to the specific roles of the licensed practical nurse and the registered nurse as determined by the Indiana Nurse Practice Act. The College is responsible for providing an academic environment and services, which enhance student life and promote personal as well as professional growth. The nursing faculty strives to create an educational culture of respect for dignity, rights, responsibility and power of choice, which facilitates caring interactions between students, educators, the health care team, patients, and significant others. Systematic evaluation of the programs provides a measure of accountability to the student, the College, and the community. Spring 2015 Version Updated 07/01/
