3 PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE NURSING MAJOR The purpose of the Edgewood College School of Nursing is to provide a Baccalaureate program of nursing education, which prepares a competent generalist in the professional practice of nursing within: The context of a Christian community A collaborative framework of nursing practice, education and research A climate that fosters lifelong learning Mission of the School of Nursing The School of Nursing reflects the Mission Statement of Edgewood College by locating professional nursing within the context of a Catholic, liberal arts college with a Dominican Heritage. The mission of the College is to develop intellectual competence and a sense of responsibility for service and to further personal development. Nursing is a profession built on knowledge from nursing theory, research and practice, the humanities, and the natural and behavioral sciences. Nursing values the systematic and purposeful application of the nursing process to promote the optimal health of clients. Caring is essential to professional nursing practice and includes appreciation of human diversity and respect for the rights of others. Students are unique individuals who enter nursing with diverse characteristics and experiences. It is the responsibility of the student to actively pursue knowledge and experience and to develop intellectual curiosity with a spirit of inquiry as a basis for lifelong learning. The faculty develops, implements and evaluates the curriculum to provide a broad and rich foundation for nursing practice. Faculty foster the professional development of students by offering learning challenges, promoting opportunities to think critically and creatively and exhibiting collegiality in the teaching-learning relationship. Teaching and learning is a dynamic and interactive process designed to integrate knowledge and research with professional nursing practice. Teaching and learning are facilitated when both students and faculty are actively engaged in the process. The nursing graduates of Edgewood College are knowledgeable, accountable, responsible, ethical and culturally sensitive as they provide quality nursing care. Undergraduate education provides the knowledge and experience to practice as professional nurses. Graduate education builds on undergraduate education and prepares nurse leaders committed to improving nursing practice. Baccalaureate Program Outcomes The graduate will: Establish therapeutic relationships with clients that demonstrate caring. Demonstrate critical thinking skills and caring practices to promote, maintain and restore health. Synthesize knowledge from nursing theory, research and practice, the humanities and the natural and behavioral sciences to provide a basis for professional nursing practice. Respond to environmental factors that influence the health of individuals, families and communities. Collaborate with clients and colleagues in the process of identifying and organizing resources for the effective provision of health care. Demonstrate professional behaviors that reflect accountability and commitment in nursing practice. 3

4 Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability It is the policy of Edgewood College to ensure that no qualified person shall, solely by reason of disability, be excluded from participation in, or be denied benefits of, any program or activity operated by Edgewood College. It is the responsibility of the student seeking services to provide all necessary information and documentation of special requirements for assistance well in advance of actual need for those services. It is recommended that all information be submitted 30 days prior to the beginning of a semester. Requests for some services such as text taping and brailling may require more notice. Services for students with disabilities are coordinated through the Student Resource Center, Room 206, DeRicci. American Nurses Association Standards of Practice Standard I.

(Reprinted with permission from the Wisconsin Nurses Association) Please refer to the Code of Professional Conduct Found on the SofN website: DEGREES OFFERED The School of Nursing offers a program leading to either the BS or BA degree with a major in nursing. There are 128 credits required for graduation, of which 49 are in the Nursing Major. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Wisconsin Board of Nursing. Policies for Admission to the Nursing Program Students are admitted to the nursing major in both Fall and Spring semesters. Students must apply for admission to the nursing major by February 1 for Fall enrollment and by October 1 for Spring enrollment. All students must complete the formal application process. Application is through Nursing CAS. A student is limited to filing no more than three (3) applications for admission to the School of Nursing. 5

6 General Admission Policies Students must complete 45 credits, including the courses listed below or their transfer equivalent, to meet eligibility requirements for admission to the nursing program: English 110, College Writing (W-Tag) Math 121 (M-Tag) Psychology 101, General Psychology (J-Tag) Foreign Language (2 semesters of college level or 2 years of high school level) (L-Tag) Four of the following science courses: Chemistry 110 or 120 (must be completed or in progress at time of application) Biology 155 (preferred) or Chemistry 111 (must be completed or in progress at time of application) Two semesters of Anatomy & Physiology (BIO 210 & 211) Microbiology including lab component (BIO 312 or equivalent) Students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75 on all previous undergraduate college work. Students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75 on all required science and math courses, with no grade less than C. The number of admissions to the program may be limited by College or School of Nursing policies. If there are fewer qualified students than spaces available, applications will continue to be accepted until available slots are filled. Current CPR certification, physical exam, health data, CNA certification and background checks are required upon admission to the nursing program. The required documentation is to be submitted according to the School of Nursing protocol. Students are responsible for all costs incurred. Students are responsible for their own transportation for all nursing course activities. Edgewood College s School of Nursing and all clinical agencies under contract to the School of Nursing require that every student and faculty member have a background check completed BEFORE entry into the nursing major program. (Students are responsible for payment of the required fees). Students are responsible for notifying the School of Nursing of any criminal charges or convictions that occur while they are progressing through the program. Students who have been convicted of certain types of offenses may not be able to participate in clinical placements and therefore will not be eligible to earn a degree in nursing. It is also possible that a student may not be eligible for licensure by the State of Wisconsin or another state licensing authority if certain types of criminal offenses are identified in the background check. Random drug checks may be done in clinical agencies throughout the duration of a student s clinical experiences. Policies for Repeating Courses In accordance with college policy, a student may choose to repeat a course taken at Edgewood College to improve a poor or failing grade (according to institutional policy, courses taken initially at Edgewood can only be replaced by repeating that course again at Edgewood College). Both earned grades are included in the overall GPA computation by the College. An academic cumulative GPA of 2.75 is required for admission to the nursing major, and an academic GPA of 2.5 is required for progression in the nursing major. If a nursing or pre-nursing student repeats a required science or math course, the most recent grade will be used to compute the math/science GPA for entrance or progression in the nursing major. A cumulative GPA of 2.75 in supporting math and science courses is required for admission to the nursing major and a cumulative GPA of 2.5 must be maintained in all required science and nursing courses for progression in the nursing major. 6

7 A course required for the nursing major may be repeated only once for GPA calculation in the nursing major. In accordance with college policy, repeated courses are counted only once in total credits earned. A grade of C or better is necessary in each required science, math, and nursing course. All other policies for admission and progression remain the same as published in the Edgewood College Undergraduate Catalog. Progression in the Nursing Major Theory and clinical courses must be taken concurrently. If extenuating circumstances prevent this, the clinical must be taken the following semester. If this does not occur, the School of Nursing may require additional course work for the student. If nursing theory or clinical is interrupted for more than one semester, the School of Nursing may require the student to enroll in nursing Independent Study prior to progression into the next theory/clinical courses. Course work should be planned to ensure that graduation occurs no later than the semester following the completion of the required nursing courses. Students who do not meet this timeline will need to present their situation to the School of Nursing. Standardized Assessment The School of Nursing participates in an assessment process that compares our students with other nursing students across the country. The computerized examinations, completed at regular intervals throughout the curriculum, provide benchmarks for student performance in critical thinking, nursing process, therapeutic communication, pharmacology, maternal-child, psychosocial, medical/surgical and community health nursing. The results are useful in preparing students to take the national licensing examination after graduation. An additional fee for the assessments is added to the tuition bill for each nursing theory course. Student abilities in meeting other program objectives are evaluated throughout the program of study.

11 Attendance in Nursing Courses Students enrolled in the Nursing major are expected to attend all classes and laboratories in order to fulfill credit requirements for each course. In the event of an absence from clinical, students will be required to make up incomplete learning experiences as determined by the clinical instructor. Academic Integrity As members of a scholarly community dedicated to healthy intellectual development, students and faculty at Edgewood College are expected to share the responsibility for maintaining high standards of honesty and integrity in their academic work. Each student should reflect this sense of responsibility toward the community by submitting work that is a product of his or her own effort in a particular course, unless the instructor has directed otherwise. In order to clarify and emphasize its standards for academic honesty, the School of Nursing enforces the Academic Honesty Policy adopted by the College (See College Catalog). The following are examples of violations of standards for academic honesty and are subject to academic sanctions: Cheating on exams; submitting collaborative work as one s own; falsifying records, achievements, field or laboratory data, or other course work; stealing examinations or course materials; submitting work previously submitted in another course, unless specifically approved by the present instructor; falsifying documents or signing an instructor s or administrator s name to any document or form; plagiarism; or aiding another student in any of the above actions. In addition, students at all times must take care to protect the privacy of patients and clients according to the rules established under current HIPPA regulations. Failure to do so will be regarded as unethical or unprofessional conduct and a violation of the Academic Honesty Policy of the College. Such violations will be subject to sanctions to the same extent and degree as violations of academic honesty. Also see the Code of Professional Conduct. Suspension from Clinical Settings A student may be suspended without warning from a clinical setting for any of the following: Inability to engage fully in clinical/laboratory experience for health reasons. Failure to achieve or maintain health requirements, current CPR, or other requirements specified in contracts between the School of Nursing and Affiliating Clinical Sites. Unsafe, unethical, illegal, or unprofessional conduct. Evidence of inadequate preparation The suspension may result in failure to continue in the current clinical setting, failure to progress to the next clinical course, or dismissal from the major. 11

The remaining graduates practice in a variety of clinical areas, including maternal-child, geriatric, public health and home health nursing. 17

18 SATISFACTION OF GRADUATES Survey results indicate that the graduates of Edgewood College feel well prepared for the area in which they are currently practicing. There are three areas that have been consistently rated high in terms of the effectiveness of the nursing program at Edgewood.

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN NURSING Message from the Graduate Program Director We welcome your interest in the graduate nursing program at Edgewood College. For years, our graduate program has offered two concentrations that are not offered at many colleges and universities: Nursing Education and Nursing Administration. These programs are designed to address the needs of working professionals, with course offerings in the evenings to accommodate busy schedules. Each concentration is 36 credits, with course offerings in the fall, spring and summer semesters. Students from each concentration have an opportunity to interact while taking courses in the core curriculum. Specialty courses in the Nursing Education program focus on planning and delivering education programs, curriculum design, teaching strategies and interpersonal competency. Individuals who are interested in this program often apply their degree in the areas of patient/family education, staff development, clinical instruction, community health education, as well as preparing and delivering lectures and courses in a college setting. Specialty courses in the Nursing Administration program focus on managing healthcare systems, roles of the executive in a health setting, business communication, organizational behavior, and healthcare finance. Offerings include MBA courses through the School of Business. Application of this degree is often seen in healthcare management roles, executive administration, as well as in program planning and evaluation. In addition, the graduate nursing programs at Edgewood College offer a practicum opportunity that expose students in a concentrated experience of interest. Our students and alumni have assumed leadership roles in education and administration throughout our community. Graduates have also been successful in becoming certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. We are proud of all of them, and welcome you to our program. Certificates Edgewood College also provides opportunities for students to take a cohesive selection of graduate courses in Nursing Education or Nursing Administration.
