4 St. Catharine College School of Health and Human Sciences Department of Nursing BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN NURSING PROGRAM STUDENT HANDOOK HANDBOOK The Department of Nursing provides a Student Handbook to provide learners with RNBSN Program information. The handbook flows from the St. Catharine College (SCC) Student and School of Health and Human Sciences Handbooks, policies and procedures. It is a guide to the expectations of the Department and Program and is not all inclusive. Program policies are subject to change as needed or recommended by the faculty. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM The RN to BSN Program has been designed for the registered nurse (RN) who desires nursing knowledge at the post associate level. The RNBS Program focuses upon education expected of beginning nurse leaders and competent practitioners which includes community, cultural, health assessment, leadership/management and evidence based knowledge. The RNBS Program is designed to allow working adults the opportunity to earn the BSN degree while employed full time. Presented in a hybrid format, each course uses both internet and classroom activities. Online assignments require computer access and are independently executed. Classroom sessions are held every three to four weeks to permit interactions and present professional and personal application of content. Eight week and 16 week courses are offered in the fall and spring semesters. ACCREDITATION St. Catharine College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate and baccalaureate degrees. It is licensed by the Council of Postsecondary Education of the Commonwealth of Kentucky to award Associate and Baccalaureate Degrees. (SCC Catalogue) MISSION STATEMENT The Department of Nursing is committed to the mission of St. Catharine College and the School of Health and Human Sciences. The mission of the RNBS Completion Program is to offer nursing education through an innovative curriculum with a high level of accountability in order to prepare Registered Nurses (RN) for complex health issues and graduate education. The RNBS is designed to improve health care and enhance one s professional worth through lifelong learning while serving the community, society and the profession. Registered nurses who have graduated from an approved or accredited Associate Degree nursing program (ADN/ASN) and have passed the National Council Licensure Examination- 4

5 Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) and are otherwise qualified to practice nursing may seek admission. Diploma prepared RNs will be individually evaluated. The individual is to possess an active unencumbered RN license. PHILOSOPHY The program philosophy is embedded in a milieu of commitment to educational excellence; a supportive environment; respect for individual diversity and spiritual growth; responsibility for selves and a just society; recognition of previous learning and appreciation for reflective nursing practice. Recognizing the dignity and worth of all human beings, we believe: About the Individual The individual is defined as a person, family or community who possesses basic needs that fall into complex and hierarchal patterns. Individuals meet their needs in varying ways from simple through complex interventions. Individuals have the right to be active participants in meeting their healthcare decisions. Spiritual growth is advanced through involvement in a variety of endeavors including community activities. About the Environment The integrity of the ecosystem is important as it relates to the need for the health, safety, wellbeing, and peace of individuals. A caring environment promotes the harmony and growth of individuals, families and communities. About Health Responses to variations in health are unique to each individual and flow from an overall pattern of interrelationships. Variations in health occur when multifaceted contributors, including cultural factors, interfere with an individual s ability to meet human needs. Holistic and health promotion approaches influence responses by individuals, families and communities along the health/wellness continuum. A core of knowledge is shared by all levels of nursing education. This core expands and professional consciousness evolves as an individual progresses academically and experientially; therefore, nursing curricula should be seamless, avoiding unnecessary repetition. A holistic approach focusing on health will be emphasized throughout the curriculum. About Nurse/Nursing Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations 5

6 (American Nurses Association, 2010, p. 1). As a profession, nursing adheres to the scope and standards of nursing, standards of professional performance and code of ethics. About Evidence-based Practice Nursing practice is centered in the use of evidence-based outcomes. Evidence-based outcomes are actions, processes, or methodologies that are grounded in and flow from the translation of substantive and current research. (NLNAC (2008). NLNAC accreditation manual (2008 ed), New York City, NY: Author, p.100) About Teaching and Learning Education should be accessible and sensitive to learners' needs. Previous learning is valuable and can be validated to equate with academic standards. Academic success is facilitated when the learner is motivated and engaged by an environment that is supportive. The teacher encourages critical thinking, intellectual independence and self-direction through a relationship with the learner that is egalitarian and dialogic. Evaluation is systematic and ongoing. The results are utilized to continually improve the program of learning. The principles of adult learning facilitate the growth of the reflective practitioner. CURRICULUM CONCEPTS The RN-BSN Program introduces advanced information to concepts provided to the Associate Degree Registered Nurse. Critical concepts include communication, critical thinking, ethical/legal, growth and development, health assessment, health promotion and maintenance, nursing process, profession (al), and safety. Concepts that guide outcomes for the BSN graduate include the following: assessment of the individual, family and community; culture; complex health patterns; evidence/research based; health care delivery; leadership; management; quality control/issues; and professionalism. DESCRIPTION OF GRADUATE Graduates of the program are generalists in nursing who build upon their basic nursing education. The program focuses upon critical thinking and the application of current best practices using evidence based knowledge and research within their respective nursing practice domains. Advanced assessments, transcultural information, leadership and management principles are used in caring for individuals, families and communities independently and cooperatively with healthcare colleagues. Graduates earning the BSN Degree will possess the framework to continue their graduate nursing education. 6

7 STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES The ultimate outcome of the RN-BSN Program at St. Catharine College is the development of a competent, professional baccalaureate level registered nurse, who is prepared for graduate education. Upon completion of the program through an innovative curriculum, the graduate: 1. Incorporates knowledge from one s basic nursing program into a baccalaureate nursing practice role to provide nursing care to individuals, families and the community. 2. Presents self as a caring individual when providing holistic care to diverse populations who represent various cultural differences and spiritual dimensions. 3. Demonstrates a leadership role through the use of advocacy, communication, collaboration, ethical-legal principles, evidence based knowledge, management, and teaching-learning outcomes to populations within a variety of healthcare settings. 4. Uses the nursing process in providing professional nursing practice that reflects the nursing code of ethics and standards of professional nursing practice. 5. Applies critical thinking, evidence-based nursing outcomes, and current technologies in providing professional nursing. 6. Displays the capacity and readiness for accountability to the nursing profession. 7

8 Admission to St. Catharine College ADMISSION PROCEDURE AND CRITERIA ADMISSION PROCESS Upon acceptance to the RNBS Program, admission to St. Catharine College is to be completed unless the student is currently attending the institution. Students graduating from the college with an associate nursing degree are to meet with the program director and complete a Change in Major Form for the registrar. College admission requirements must be completed prior to entering the nursing program. Admission to the program is available each semester. Admission Status: Full or Conditional. Full admission is provided when all RNBSN entry requirements have been met. Criteria include possessing a license to practice nursing, the completion of a BSN application and one reference except for SCC associate nursing graduates. Conditional admission maybe provided when the student lacks required admission criteria but is expected to comply within a specific time frame. A student may not graduate if conditional admission issues have not been met. Due to scheduling needs, new admits may register for core requirements or guided electives in the summer. The nursing major may be completed in one academic year for students enrolled full time in NUR designated courses. As stipulated by St. Catharine College, full-time students should complete their Baccalaureate Degree within five academic years (including summer terms). Students may take 10 semesters to complete a Baccalaureate Degree. Upon approval from the program coordinator, a maximum of 30% of the required NUR designated course work may be transferred to St. Catharine College. Transcripts and licensures will be individually evaluated. Per college stipulations, a degree is not awarded with less than 25% of the coursework taken from St. Catharine College (Catalogue, Bachelor Degree Graduation Requirements). Transfer students should follow the process outlined in the SCC Catalog. Application The student is to be admitted to St. Catharine College following the institution s admission policies and procedures. Prior to seeking admission to the RN to BSN Program, a meeting with the program chair is required. Once admission eligibility is established, the RN to BSN Admission Application is to be completed and one reference (i.e., instructor, employer, supervisor, clergy) submitted. The form can be obtained from the Nursing Office or Nursing Web Page of the college. The Applicant The applicant is required to hold an Associate Degree with a major in Nursing with at least 60 semester hours of credit from a regionally or nationally accredited college or university and have successfully completed the NCLEX for RN licensure. Registered nurses with a Diploma in Nursing will be considered on an individual basis. Program applicants as with any program of study at St. Catharine College are not discriminated against based on race, color, national and ethnic origin, gender, or age. An individual who is preparing to sit for the NCLEX may enter the program conditionally. Registered nurse licensure should be obtained within one semester following graduation from an associate nursing degree program. 8

9 Licensure Information A copy of a current, valid, unencumbered RN license or listing on a state licensing board web site must be submitted to the Nursing Program. All licenses will be verified before the applicant is admitted to the RNBS Program. While enrolled in the RNBS program, an active license is to be maintained. Conditional admission may be given for an who is individual preparing to sit for the NCLEX examination. Individuals with an associate degree in nursing who have been conditionally admitted have one semester in which to successfully pass the NCLEX examination. A graduate form SCC Associate in Nursing Degree may be conditionally admitted pending passage of the NCLEX within one semester graduating from the associate program. If the NCLEX has not been passed, the student may not continue the program until the R.N. is obtained. Transcripts An official transcript from each college attended is to be sent directly to St. Catharine College s Admission Office. The applicant may bring an unopened official transcript to the Nursing Program if desired. A transcript is required from all institutions of higher education that have been attended and credit received. Admission Grade Point Average A cumulative grade point average of 2.75 is required for admission. The grade point average is calculated only on courses accepted for transfer into the RN to BSN Program. Curriculum Plan of Study A curriculum plan of study is generated for each individual and includes both SCC general bachelor courses and BSN nursing courses. A minimum of 124 credit hours are required to graduate. The general rule is that if a student stops-out for over one year and returns, the student returns under the current catalog with its core, program, and major requirements. The exception is that if students stop-out for one or two consecutive semesters (whether or not a summer vacation comes between the two semesters if there are two), the student may return under the catalog in effect when the student first enrolled. This is a one-time exception for a student s undergraduate career at SCC. If a student stops-out and re-enrolls under the student s original catalog on one occasion, and then subsequently stops-out and re-enrolls again, the student must re-enroll on the second or subsequent re-enrollments under the current catalog (SCC Catalog). STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES Students who feel they have a disability of any sort and would like to request accommodations for same must contact Sr. Mary Angela Shaughnessy, Disabilities Service Coordinator, to obtain information on college and student requirements for ADA accommodations. 9

10 HEALTH REQUIREMENTS FOR PRACTICUM EXPERIENCES Per requirements by clinical agencies, students may be required to meet health requirements in order to complete a practicum experience required by the nursing program. Prior to enrolling in NUR 470 Community Health Nursing and/or any course that requires the student to use a clinical site, the clinical facility may request documentation of the following health requirements unless medically waived. 1. Background Check A background check can be completed via the Administrative Office of the Court in one s county of residence. Allow six weeks for this to be processed. The cost of the background check is the responsibility of the student. Additional background checks may be conducted at the discretion of the Department of Nursing, Dean of Health and Human Sciences or clinical agency. Specific directions will be provided prior to the practicum experience. 2. Childhood Immunizations Diphtheria Hepatitis B Vaccine Series Rubella Titer or 2 MMRs Tetanus Toxoid (within last 10 years) Varicella Zoster (Chickenpox): Documentation of disease or immunization 3. Current PPD skin test (if positive, chest x-ray results are required) 4. Current CPR certification 5. Urine Analysis Test. (Drug screen) The School of Health and Human Sciences has zero tolerance for illicit drug use. Therefore, any individual who tests positive for illicit drugs will be dismissed. The Urine Analysis Test may be required prior to practicum experiences. Outcomes (results) are used by the program whenever clinical facilities seek clarification on student completing clinical experiences or by community agencies to verify that the student is chemically free. Individuals who do not have a chemical free urine analysis test may be barred from the clinical facilities and/or dismissed from the nursing program. Results of urine analysis tests are confidential and maintained by the BSN Program Chair. In the case of a positive preliminary urine drug screen, the student will be suspended from attending clinical experiences but will be allowed to attend the theory portion of the course and complete any assignments including examinations. If a follow-up negative urine drug screen is confirmed, the student will receive credit for all assignments and allowed to make-up any missed clinical experiences. If a positive screen is confirmed as a result of a prescribed medication, the student may be permitted to remain in the program following consultation with the BSN Program Chair and documentation of a current prescription. If a positive urine drug screen result is confirmed, the student will be dismissed from the program. The clinical agency may require a copy of the urine drug analysis to permit clinical experiences. Should the student choose not to grant permission, the student may be unable to continue in the course if an alternative placement is unavailable. 10

11 HEALTH INSURANCE Individuals are encouraged to carry health insurance while a student in the nursing program. Any injury or health issue incurred in didactic or clinical education is the financial responsibility of the student. All students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance. See Health Insurance in the College of Health and Human Sciences Handbook statement. CURRICULUM IMPLEMENTATION PLAN The RN to BSN Program curriculum can be completed in one academic year if one enrolls as a full time student. All courses within the program are presented in a hybrid format consisting of both classroom and online assignments. Online assignments use SAKAI and are independently completed by the student; however, the faculty member is available for assistance. Classroom sessions permit students to interact and present professional and personal application of content. Typically, classroom sessions are scheduled every three to four weeks. Eight week and sixteen week courses are offered in the fall and spring semesters. A variety of electives, as well as NUR493 Professional Nursing Capstone Experience, may be offered in the summer. The following sequence is the usual progression of courses; however, course progression may be altered to fit the needs of enrolled students. Bachelor nursing courses may be taken in any order except for NUR 450 Evidence-based Outcomes and NUR 493 Professional Nursing Capstone. Unless otherwise stipulated, NUR 450 Evidence-based Outcomes is to precede NUR493 Professional Nursing Capstone. In addition, the NUR493 Professional Nursing Capstone course is to be completed in the last semester of the BSN major.

This course has been designated as fulfilling one Stewardship course requirement within core studies. NUR 493 Professional Nursing Capstone Experience (3) The capstone experience focuses on the knowledge, resources, responsibilities and evidence essential for the nurse leader to investigate and develop solutions for practice issues. An analysis of an issue that impacts nursing practice will be investigated and a project completed in the student s final semester of the BSN major. The capstone experience is completed in the final semester of BSN course work. EVALUATION PROCESS The following grading system is used within the Department of Nursing. Percentages as related to each grade have been noted. The Department of Nursing requires at least a passing grade of 77% in all courses. Each course may stipulate the manner in which items within the course are used in calculating the overall grade. COURSE GRADING SCALE Grading Scale Grade Point System 93% to 100% A A = 4 points 86% to 91% B B = 3 points 77% to 85% C C = 2 points 67% to 76% D D = 1 point Below 66% F F = 0 points CLINICAL GRADING Courses that have a clinical component will have an evaluation for both the course and clinical component. To pass the course, BOTH the course and clinical components will have a grade equivalent to a C. Grade percents are not influenced by a decimal. Example 84.4%=84%; 84.5%=84%. COURSE AND PROGRAM ASSESSMENT Each nursing course will designate at least one assignment that exemplifies course outcomes. The assignment(s) will be copied and retained for course and program assessment purposes as stipulated by SCC and accreditation agencies. Student names will not be disclosed in the assessment and data processes. An agreement form is signed upon admission to the program; a copy is located in the appendices. 13

14 TEACHING METHODS AND STRATEGIES (non inclusive) Demonstration Discussion Examination Journaling Participation Practicum Presentation Project Quiz Research Seminar Web Based Instruction PROGRESSION The following standards are required for academic progression in the nursing program: 1. A grade of C or higher must be earned in each course in the core curriculum and guided electives. 2. A course may be repeated once. Per SCC Catalogue: The grade earned on the repeated course, whether it is higher or lower than the first grade, supersedes the first grade and is used for calculating the student s grade point average. If a course does not earn a C after two attempts, the student will be withdrawn from the program. 3. A student must achieve a GPA of 2.00 while in the RNBS Program. 4. Upon approval from the RNBS Coordinator, a maximum of 30% of courses within the nursing major may be considered for transfer credit. 5. In courses where a practicum experience is required, practicum hours are calculated on a 1:3 hour ratio. Example: One credit hour is based upon a 15 week semester and equals 15 clock hours. Therefore, one credit hour in a practicum requires 3 (three) clocks hour per week times 15 weeks for a total of 45 clock hours. 6. A student who has not successfully passed the NCLEX examination may not progress after the first semester of course work. Once the NCLEX has been successfully completed, readmission will be considered. 7. A student is to be in full admission status to graduate. Readmission to RNBS Program Requests for readmission are individually reviewed. Except for successfully achieving the NCLEX examination, an individual may only be readmitted once. Each individual course is 14

15 counted as one course within the one readmit statement. The placement of the course determines which semester readmission may occur if the request is approved. If dismissed for violating the SCC Standards of Student Conduct, readmission is not available. A letter of request and an application to the RNBS Program are to be submitted to the BSN Program Chair at least one month prior to the semester in which reentry is desired. Stipulations in the SCC Catalog will be followed regarding the regulations for reentry. Courses in the nursing major will be individually assessed. Typically, courses that are over five years old require an updated course. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY/HONESTY Professional behavior is expected within the course and between peers. Any act of academic dishonesty is a serious matter, and the student can expect serious consequences to result. Please refer to the St. Catharine College Catalogue for complete details related to this matter. Examples of expectations and consequences of academic dishonesty which includes plagiarism, sharing or selling assignments and falsification are provided. Consideration should be given to the heading Special Status of Professional Conduct and Ethics. Violations of such standards may result in sanctions up to and including immediate expulsion from a program. Any action taken related to academic dishonesty will be considered, should the student apply for readmission into the nursing program. Students will be held accountable to the standards of academic integrity outlined in the SCC Catalog, SCC Student Handbook, and Health and Human Sciences Handbook. ATTENDANCE POLICY Students are expected to attend all classes and complete course related activities. Material is covered at a fast pace and any material missed may have an impact on future success of the nursing student. As the hybrid teaching format is utilized, classroom participation is expected. However, professional courtesy dictates notification of the instructor of any absence with the exception of emergencies prior to the beginning of the class. Should the instructor not be notified, a grading penalty may be imposed. Unless it is an emergency, telephone/texting should be performed during breaks. Nursing is a professional discipline; therefore, professional courtesy and behavior is expected. Exceptions to this policy can be made by the instructor in consultation with the RNBS Program Chair and the Dean of Health and Human Sciences. Communication Faculty will stipulate on the course syllabus office hours and appointment information. According to St. Catharine College, the academic policy is that electronic communication with students is to be conducted only through the campus system. It is therefore the student s responsibility to review one s personal campus to comply with class instructions, notices of appointment, due date changes and other department and/or college communication. It is highly encouraged to check one s SCC account at least weekly. Not checking one s SCC account will not excuse the omission of an assignment or class obligations. 15
