(NEASC) through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. Accreditation of an institution of higher education by NEASC indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one that has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation. The Master of Science in Nursing degree program has received initial five-year accreditation by the Collegiate Commission on Nursing Education (CCNE) in March of 2011 after review of the program. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs. Accreditation by CCNE serves as a statement of good educational practice in the field of nursing.

6 SCHOOL OF NURSING GUIDING STATEMENTS The School of Nursing at MCPHS University (Thereafter the School of Nursing) offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) and the Master of Science degree in Nursing (MSN) programs that prepares competent, caring, and ethical nursing professionals to meet the ever changing needs of healthcare environment. The philosophy, mission, vision, core values, goals, and outcome statements of the School of Nursing provide a guiding framework for its faculty, staff, and students, and the clinical partners. Philosophy Congruent with the philosophy and core values of MCPHS, the School of Nursing philosophy reflects our beliefs in a set of core values that are fundamental to nursing education and shared and upheld by the nursing students, faculty and staff, and our clinical partners. Education is a self-actualizing, creative, and lifetime endeavor involving systematic inquiry and progression from novice to expert. The educational process must be learner-centered to foster intellectual vitality, critical thinking, and the responsibility of ongoing professional development. Nursing education must be academically rigorous and socially relevant which embraces multiple ways of knowing and integrates the liberal arts and sciences with professional nursing study. The nursing curriculum is organized around a clear appreciation of the domain of nursing science: person/people, health/illness, society/environment, and nursing. The program cohesiveness is evidenced by weaving scholarly, professional, and practice-related activities throughout the education process. Nursing is deeply rooted in the science of caring and connection to others. Individuals have unique qualities and basic needs for respect and recognition of personal dignity. The universality of human rights and needs transcend the boundaries of age, gender, race, ethnicity, class, culture, language, spirituality, and religion. Human diversity and psychosocial-cultural factors influence and are influenced by the experience of individuals, communities, and society. Incorporation of humanity and respect in providing nursing care is vital to the process of healing and in the provision of comfort. The primary goals of nursing are to promote, restore and maintain health, prevent disease, and provide care and comfort throughout life, during illness, and at the end-of-life. The patient is the center of nursing care and may be an individual, family, group, or community in varying states of health. The patient is recognized as having distinct and unique needs that continuously change and are redefined as the patient interacts with the nurse, health care providers, and the environment. It is critical that a nurse anticipates and adapts to the changing needs of the patient. Identification of patient needs, provision of nursing care, the healthcare experience, and environment are fundamentally connected. The nurse helps create a healing environment for each patient by collaborating with the patient to establish mutual goals that enable the patient to attain optimal health. Clinical partnerships foster associations in which resources, knowledge, and experiences are reciprocated and connected through professional relationships and collaborations. Students, faculty and staff, and clinical partners form a dynamic triad whereby nursing practice informs nursing education and nursing education influences the practice of nursing and the delivery of healthcare. The goal of our clinical partnerships is to provide a solid, functional, and rigorous foundation for evidence-based nursing practice. The future of nursing rests with those entering the profession. The beliefs and values that sustain nursing education are expressed at every level of the educational experience. We are dedicated to the advancement of all engaged in this endeavor, and we foresee significant personal and professional growth as outcomes for students, faculty and staff, and clinical partners.

10 Provision 9 The profession of nursing, collectively through its professional organizations, must articulate nursing values, maintain the integrity of the profession, and integrate principles of social justice into nursing and health policy. ANA code of ethics It is an expectation that all students read and refer to the American Nurses Association (ANA) Code of Ethics (2015) located on the ANA website: The Code of Ethics is one of several professional nursing standards that frame the curriculum of the BSN and MSN programs. The Code provides a standard of practice to guide nursing professionals toward thoughtful, ethical, and high quality nursing care. The Code of Ethics provides a guiding framework of ethical expectations for students enrolled in the MCPHS School of Nursing. All nursing students are expected to not only know the Code of Ethics but also adhere to its guiding principles of ethical behavior. The nursing faculty is committed to delivering an innovative nursing curriculum that combines active teaching-learning strategies, real-world clinical immersion, and an environment of respect, collaboration, and professionalism to students and prepares students for competent, resilient, compassionate, and skilled professional practice. The program s clinical partnership model assures that all members engage in this effort and are committed to achieving the program s goals. Because of the program s commitment to a unique model of clinical partnership, guiding statements were developed to make the commitment explicit. Specifically, program faculty, staff, and clinical partners have made a commitment to: Engage in partnerships that inform nursing education through clinical practice and influence clinical practice through nursing education, Promote individual and collective development of faculty and clinical partners through collaborative teaching, practice, service, and scholarship, and Mentor students in the transition from student to entry-level practitioner of nursing.

14 GENERAL POLICIES Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) In 1996 Congress passed federal regulations to provide portability of health insurance when an employee leaves a job as a way to be able to change insurance carriers without a break in coverage. The act contains other provisions that have a major impact on the practice of healthcare providers. The Administrative Simplification Clause of HIPAA Title II addresses Electronic Transaction Standards, Unique Identifiers, Privacy Standards and Security Standards concerning all data pertaining to the care of each individual patient in any healthcare facility. The provisions under the privacy and security standards impose strict compliance with confidentiality on the part of all who have access to patient records. All healthcare providers are required to have documented training regarding these patient privacy regulations. All School of Nursing students are required to attend a formalized training session on HIPAA regulations provided by the College and/or by the clinical agency. Students are expected to adhere to all HIPAA provisions and standards related to patient privacy. Failure to do so may subject the student to disciplinary action under the MCPHS Student Code of Conduct. Immunization Requirements In accordance with Massachusetts state law, University policy, and clinical agency requirements, all students must show proof of the following immunizations prior to the start of clinical immersion, unless they qualify for one of the exemptions allowed by the law. Please refer to the MCPHS University Catalog for exemptions allowed by law. (http://www.mcphs.edu/academics/college%20catalog ) Required immunizations include: Two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine(s) (MMR#1 and MMR #2) given at least one month apart at or after 12 months of age, or laboratory evidence of immunity. A booster dose of tetanus-diphtheria (Td) within the past ten years. Varicella (chickenpox) positive titer result or two doses of varicella vaccine given with a one month interval between vaccinations. Hepatitis B positive titer or vaccine (3 doses, or 2 doses given between the ages of with a four-week interval between vaccinations). Hepatitis B positive surface antibody. Meningococcal vaccine (within the last 5 years) at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of classes. Annual two-step Tuberculosis skin test (two tests within the last 12 months, completed 1-3 weeks apart). If results are positive, a clear chest x-ray (with laboratory report of physician verification of results) or a physician letter verifying the student is symptom free is required each year. Rubella positive titer. Influenza vaccine recommended annually.* Health Insurance is required for all students in order to attend classes/lab/clinical. Some healthcare agencies and clinical education sites may have additional immunization requirements. In order to be eligible for clinical placements, students must meet ALL University immunization requirements and any additional requirements imposed by the clinical agency to which the student is assigned. In cases where the clinical site does not pay for the completion of any additional immunization requirements, the student is responsible for paying any associated fees. Without full clearance of immunization requirements, students may not be eligible to begin clinical learning experiences, and consequently may be unable to meet program requirements. Immunization information and clearances are provided through the University s contracted vendor. MCPHS SON Graduate Student Handbook / April 30 th

15 CPR Certification All students must show evidence of CPR training prior to beginning clinical experiences in NUR 703 Advanced Health Assessment. Students must be certified in Basic Cardiac Life Support (BCLS) at the Healthcare Provider Level by the American Heart Association (AHA). NOTE: It is the responsibility of the student to submit evidence of all required annual updates of immunizations and certification renewals. Students will not be permitted to participate in clinical learning experiences until all information is received, and consequently, may be unable to meet program requirements or experience a delay in graduation. Academic Honesty The MCPHS University School of Nursing s primary purpose is the pursuit of academic excellence. Teaching and learning must occur in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect. Such trust and respect can be developed and maintained only if honesty prevails in the academic community. Moreover, it is the shared responsibility of all members of the MCPHS University community to maintain this climate of honesty. Administrators, faculty, and students all benefit from the pursuit of academic excellence in an environment characterized by integrity, honesty, and mutual respect. Such integrity is fundamental to and represents an integral component of professional nursing education. In keeping with academic integrity, students are expected to be honest in their academic work such as submission of coursework and materials that are their own. Examples of dishonest conduct include but are not limited to: Cheating, i.e., copying examination answers. Collusion, i.e., working with another person or persons when independent work is prescribed. Falsification or fabrication of an assigned project, data, results, or sources. Giving, receiving, offering, or soliciting information included on examinations. Utilization of work previously submitted by another student who has progressed to a higher level. Destruction or alteration of the work of another student. The multiple submission of the same paper or report for assignments in more than one course without the prior written permission of each instructor. Signing another student s name. Plagiarism, the appropriation of information, ideas, or the language of other persons or writers and the submission of them as one's own to satisfy the requirements of a course. Plagiarism thus constitutes both theft and deceit. Assignments (compositions, term papers, computer programs, etc.) acquired either in part or in whole from commercial sources or from other students and submitted as one's own original work will be considered plagiarism. (See MCPHS University Handbook). The unauthorized recording, sale, or use of lectures and other instructional materials. In the case of such dishonesty, professor may give a grade of zero for the project, paper and/or examination and may record an "F" for the course itself. When appropriate, dismissal from the School of Nursing may be recommended. Any faculty member encountering an academic offense such as, but not limited to, those listed above will file a written report to the Dean of Students and the Dean of the School of Nursing, indicating reasons for believing the student has committed academic dishonesty. The Dean of Students/designee will conduct formal hearings to investigate the alleged violation according to the Student Code of Conduct and will issue a written determination (including any sanctions) within seven (7) class days after the hearing. Written determination will be made and copies will be given to the student(s) and to the professor. If the student requests an appeal, MCPHS appeal policies and procedures must be followed.

16 Procedure for Resolving Student/Faculty Course Conflicts Conflict should be resolved where the conflict originates if possible. At any step, you may be asked to meet any and all of the faculty with whom you have already spoken. You are encouraged to resolve conflicts in the following manner: Step 1: Schedule an appointment and meet with the instructor of the course. If the conflict cannot be resolved at this level, proceed to Step 2. Step 2: Schedule an appointment and meet with the FNP Track coordinator if an FNP student. The Teaching/Learning track student should schedule an appointment and meet with the Director of the Teaching/Learning track. If the conflict cannot be resolved at this level, proceed to Step 3. Step 3: Schedule an appointment and meet with the Associate Dean Graduate Nursing Studies, School of Nursing. Chain of Command In the event a student in the School of Nursing needs to communicate a concern, need, or issue relating to courses/clinical expectations/experiences, the student needs to follow the designated chain of command as follows: Step 1: the student needs to discuss his/her concern/need/issue with the faculty member of the course/clinical that s/he is having an issue with. Step 2: if the concern/need/issue is not resolved, the student may bring the concern to the course coordinator for the course/clinical the student is in. Step 3: if the concern/need/issue is not resolved, the student may bring the concern/need/issue to the Associate Dean Graduate Nursing Studies. Step 4: if the concern/need/issue still is not resolved, the student may bring the concern to the Dean of the School of Nursing. In order to meet all students needs timely and appropriately, the student is asked to follow the appropriate chain of command as outlined. The decision of the Dean is final. The student has a concern/need/issue. Step 1: Brings it to the course/clinical professor/instructor; if unresolved, Step 2: Brings it to the course coordinator/faculty; if unresolved, Step 3: Brings it to the Assistant Dean (Worcester) or Associate Dean (Boston & Manchester); if unresolved, Step 4: Brings it to the Dean of the School of Nursing.

17 ACADEMIC & PROGRESSION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES Student responsibility for contents of Graduate Student Handbook Upon admission to the MSN program, students are required to read the Graduate Student Handbook. Students are required to verify by signature that they have read and will abide by the policies, protocols, and guidelines described in this document. At the beginning of each academic year, the Student Handbook is revised as needed. The student body will be informed of any major revisions via . Grading Policy A A B B (minimum passing grade) B C F 0 <69 APA Style All formal papers must conform to guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6 th edition (2010), with the exception that page numbers must be included on all pages. In addition to the Manual, students may find the following reference helpful: APA Research Style Crib Sheet APA Citation Style APA Style.Org Class Attendance On campus students are expected to attend classes regularly. MCPHS supports a learner-centered environment. Attendance and participation in classroom, lab, and clinical learning experiences directly correlate with successful course completion and represents a basic professional behavior. Therefore, students of the School of Nursing are responsible to engage in their own learning and professional comportment. Regular class attendance is mandatory. Unexcused absences of more than six (6) didactic hours will result in a final grade reduction of one full letter grade (e.g., B to C). Unexcused absences of more than nine (9) didactic hours will result in a failing grade for the course. In the case of illness or prolonged absence, it is the student s responsibility to notify the Dean of Students (Worcester), or Assistant Dean of Students (Manchester) and his/her course faculty within five (5) days from the first date of absence. With acceptable documentation from a student, an official memorandum will be issued notifying faculty of an excused absence. In the case of an approved, excused absence, the course faculty will make reasonable attempts to assist the student to satisfy requirements of the course (e.g., make up classes and exams). Students are expected to abide by instructions in each course syllabus regarding student responsibilities related to class absences. Students who fail to do so may be ineligible to receive an excused absence, MCPHS SON Graduate Student Handbook / April 30 th

18 regardless of the reason for the absence. With respect to completion of work missed, if an acceptable agreement between the student and professor(s) cannot be reached, the School Dean will serve as arbitrator. Students are responsible for all class materials, content, and assignments. Students may only make up missed class assignments, quizzes, and exams if a valid excuse has been granted. Graded work that is missed due to an unexcused/unapproved absence will be assigned a grade of 0. Attendance Policy for Online Courses General Statement Successful online learning requires that students actively participate in the course, engage in course activities and complete course requirements on time. It is not self-paced. Therefore, students must fulfill attendance requirements by completing the course units on a weekly basis. Weekly units or modules may include any of the following: Reading course documents, textbooks, articles and web materials. Submission of assignments, projects and papers. Completion of any available quizzes, exams and laboratories. Participation in the weekly discussion board forums, team activities and . Excessive absences from weekly activities and/or failure to keep up with the course requirements will result in a decreased or failing course grade. * While assignments may be worked on during times convenient to the student, deadlines must still be met. If you are unable to participate during a particular week, please contact the instructor beforehand. Course Work All assignments are due at the times specified in the course syllabus. Faculty, at their discretion, may allow for a time extension up to a maximum of 7 days. Unless additional time has been granted by the course coordinator for completion of an assignment, or unless otherwise stipulated in the course syllabus, a maximum achievable grade will be calculated upon receipt of the late assignment. The maximum achievable grade will be based upon a loss of 5 points per day for each calendar day that a paper is late. For example, a paper that is four (4) days late can receive a maximum achievable grade of eighty (80) points. The assignment is then graded and points are subtracted from a total of eighty (80), as opposed to one hundred (100). All assigned work must be submitted, regardless of how late, to successfully complete the course and receive a course grade. Issues/concerns regarding the completion and or submission of the assignment must be brought to the attention of the course faculty prior to the due date of the assignment. Grades will not be re-considered after submission of the assignment and subsequent posting of the grade. Policy for Appealing a Failing (below 83) Grade on a Written Student Assignment or Project Issues concerning a single written assignment or project grade shall be dealt with by the course faculty and course coordinator only. There is a separate procedure to appeal the final grade for a course outlined in the SON Student Handbook. Only written assignments or project grades below 83 may be appealed. The steps in the appeal process for a single written assignment or project grade are as follows: The student must submit his/her appeal in writing to the course faculty that graded the piece/project within 48 hours of faculty posting the grade. If the appeal concerns a group project all group members must agree to and sign the written appeal. No appeals will be considered after the 48 hour time frame. Upon receipt of the appeal, the course faculty that graded the piece should arrange a time with the student to discuss the grading rubric and how the piece compared to the assignment requirements. MCPHS SON Graduate Student Handbook / April 30 th

19 If after the meeting with the grading faculty the student still wishes to challenge the grade the student should submit his/her appeal in writing to the course coordinator. In the event that the faculty who graded the piece is the course coordinator then the Course Coordinator should utilize a Peer Faculty second reviewer for a blind review of the written assignment or project. The Course Coordinator should review the written piece or project to compare it to the assignment requirements as listed in the rubric. If the Course Coordinator rules in favor of the appeal the student or group will be given an opportunity to rewrite the piece/project and submit by a specific due date. The maximum grade for the rewritten piece/project can be a max of 83 (B). Quiz/Exam Reviews All students will have the opportunity to review and analyze completed exams. This process enables students to perform better on exams by analyzing their strengths and weaknesses as a test-taker. It is used to help students determine how to improve the way they prepare for and take tests. After the exam is taken and the grade is posted by the respective faculty member, there will be a designated time to allow students to review the exam. The format of the Exam Review is at the discretion of course faculty in order to provide the best learning opportunity for each particular course. Formats may include but are not limited to; silent reviews, open forums, group work, etc. Students have 48 hours from the time of exam to contact course faculty with challenges to the exam. After 48 hours, no challenges will be accepted. Once the review has taken place, students will have no further access to their quizzes/exams for security reasons. School of Nursing Courses with Sections For security and/or other reasons, quizzes/exams or assignments administered in those courses with multiple sections may not be the same in each section. Course faculty has the right to modify quiz/exam format/type based upon their judgment. Inclement Weather For traditional face to face classes please refer to the MCPHS University catalog regarding University closure for inclement weather. In the case of inclement weather on a clinical day when the University does not close, students are expected to report to clinical as scheduled. However, at the discretion of the course coordinator/designee, scheduled clinical experiences may be delayed, cancelled, or dismissed early if travel conditions or weather forecasts pose significant concern for student safety. Withdrawal & Re-entry A graduate student wishing to withdraw from the Master of Science program must submit a written request to the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, School of Nursing, 25 Foster Street, Worcester, MA Notification of the Registrar is also required for on campus students. Notification of the Director of Online Student Services for online students is also required in writing. See College handbook for policy on refunds. A graduate student wishing to re-enter the program must submit a written request to the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, School of Nursing, 25 Foster Street, Worcester, MA and also notify the Director of Online Student Services for online students in writing. This letter must be submitted no later than 30 days from the start of the requested returning semester. Re-entry will be contingent on space availability. MCPHS SON Graduate Student Handbook / April 30 th

20 Progression Graduate students must achieve a final grade of B (GPA of 3.0) in each nursing course to progress. Clinical courses are sequential and must be taken in that order. A change in progression may result in a change in graduate date expected for the student. Each student must also achieve a grade point average of B or better in order to graduate. The student must successfully complete all components of theory and clinical of NUR 703 Advanced Health Assessment to progress in the program. Students who are in good academic standing may progress to the didactic portion of the clinical courses (NUR 809, NUR 810, NUR 811) without concurrently completing all clinical hours with approval from Associate Dean of Graduate Studies. For those courses where clinical hours are not completed, the student will earn an incomplete until the clinical hours requirement is met. Students must complete the requirements for the Master of Science in Nursing degree within four years of starting the program. If this time limit from the date of admission into the major has elapsed and the student has not completed degree requirements, the student must request an extension in writing and meet with the Dean of the School of Nursing, who may approve or deny the extension request. The School Dean s decision is final and not subject to further appeal. Incomplete Work Students must complete all didactic course requirements by a date mutually agreed upon by the faculty and student. The usual time allotted is 2-3 weeks after the beginning of the subsequent semester. A grade of I will revert to a failing grade for failure to complete course work within this time span. This applies to the didactic segment of a course and does not apply to the completion of clinical hours in NUR 809, NUR 810, or NUR 811. Please see the College Catalog on Graduation Requirements for grades and course work completion as it relates to date of graduation. A student must meet all the Graduation Requirements to be eligible for graduation. Failure to do may result in a change in the student s graduation date. Remediation Students who are identified as failing to maintain a minimum mid-point grade of at least a B will receive a mid-semester warning. If a student demonstrates difficulty in completing course work satisfactorily at any point in the semester, a meeting via telephone or Skype will be scheduled to discuss the issue. Each student is encouraged to meet with appropriate person listed below regarding the problem or concern. 1. The course instructor 2. The clinical instructor 3. The academic advisor, or 4. Academic Services Change in status (online/on campus progression) Students wishing to change their status should follow the outline below. 1. Submit a letter to the Dean of the school and copy to the online Provost and the Associate Dean of Graduate Nursing Studies. 2. Set up a meeting with the Associate dean of Graduate Nursing Studies. 3. The student contacts Financial Services to determine change in fees/credit hours.
