5 INTRODUCTION Welcome to Southern Arkansas University s (SAU) Nursing Program. We, the faculty, feel you have selected the most challenging, rewarding, and versatile career available today. We believe that a Nurse is one who possesses considerable knowledge of the basic physical, biological, behavioral, and medical sciences, plus the ability and skill to apply this knowledge in caring for patients with common nursing problems. This requires decision-making ability and sound judgment. We dedicate our time and effort to offer you those experiences that will assist you in reaching this goal. SAU s academic nursing programs are rigorous, yet achievable to those willing to commit themselves to it. The learning experiences will be available; it is your responsibility to take advantage of them. SAU provides equal educational opportunities for all, and this policy is fully implemented in all programs according to University guidelines. Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing The Arkansas State Board of Nursing approves the Department of Nursing at Southern Arkansas University. The Department of Nursing offers the Bachelor of Science (BSN) degree in nursing. The BSN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The BSN is a traditional 4-year program for pre-license nursing students degree. The RN-BSN degree is a completion program for persons who are Associate of Science (ADN), Associate of Applied Science (AAS), or diploma Registered Nurses (RN), and wish to obtain this advanced degree.

7 Philosophy and Mission Statement Mission Statement The Department of Nursing at Southern Arkansas University supports the mission statement, goals, and objectives of the University. The Department of Nursing is committed to demonstrating our core values by providing students with opportunities for intellectual growth through cultivating compassion, communication, and skill development for career preparation in a global environment. We strive to meet regional health care needs by preparing graduates who demonstrate basic competency as health care providers. Core Values: Quality, Professionalism, Innovation, Caring Philosophy of the Department of Nursing Baccalaureate nursing education prepares the graduate for entry into professional practice as a generalist who provides evidence-based care for persons as individuals, members of family/groups, and as communities in both structured and unstructured health care settings. The complexity of decision-making and accountability increases in proportion to the complexity of the patient health care setting, and the preparation of the practitioner. The different levels of nursing education imply education increases in complexity to correspond with the expected competencies of each graduate. PERSON Each person is a physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and spiritual being, and is therefore, unique and irreplaceable. The person is continually interacting and affected by the internal and external environment. Each person is dynamic and distinct, because they have unique and common basic human needs across the life span. The person within the context of individual, family/group, or community is the recipient of nursing care. ENVIRONMENT The environment consists of internal and external elements, which are in constant interaction with the person. The internal environment is composed of physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and spiritual factors, which influence the person from within. The external environment includes the physical and social elements that are external to and interactive with the person. The internal and external environments interact to produce needs unique to each person. The process the person chooses to meet those needs changes the health of the person. HEALTH Health is a dynamic state influenced by personal choices occurring in and across all environments. The health of the person is dependent upon resources available within the internal and external environment. Through collaborative efforts, health is promoted, maintained, and/or restored until the end of life. 6

8 NURSING Nursing is a scientific discipline that provides holistic care for culturally diverse persons across the life span. Nursing acknowledges the dignity, worth and the right of all persons to have their health care needs provided in and across all environments through the use of nursing/research process. The practice of nursing is based on knowledge, which incorporates critical thinking, communication, therapeutic nursing interventions, professionalism, roles, and service. NURSING EDUCATION Nursing education requires a foundation in liberal education, which provides an effective base of knowledge and cognitive skills upon which to build professional and personal growth. Nursing education within the university setting offers the opportunity to interact with students from diverse educational disciplines, which provides the individual an experience to build a broader foundation, thus shaping their practice of nursing. Nursing education is a life-long process that assists individuals in developing the potential to function productively within an ever changing health care system. The use of technological resources and innovative creative teaching strategies provides optimal learning experiences. Learning occurs when the student perceives it as relevant and the information received has concurrent application. Faculty facilitate, create, and guide learning opportunities, thus enabling individuals to seek and develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes to prepare them for practice within the nursing profession.

Honors The faculty and administration at Southern Arkansas University fully understand that the students who enter the University possess diverse capabilities and come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. In order to give recognition to students for superior achievement, as indicated by scores on entrance examinations and grades of courses completed, SAU has an honors program consisting of advanced placement, President s List, Dean s List, graduation with honors, Honors Classes, and membership in Alpha Chi, a national honor scholastic society. To earn the distinction as an Honors College graduate, students must complete a total of twentyfour hours of Honors College credit. Classes offered include seminars, general education courses, and upper-level courses in the student s major field, colloquiums, and independent studies. The following nursing courses have honors sections that meet the honors requirements: NURS3083, NURS3203, NURS3103, NURS3403, and NURS4073. Advanced Placement Advanced standing in one or more semesters of course offering may be attained on the basis of high academic high school records (high school credit) and proficiency examinations in many departments. Interested students should consult their department advisors. 18

20 Degree Completion The SAU Prelicensure BSN Curriculum assumes a high school college preparatory track, including chemistry and unconditional admission to SAU. Although designed to be completed in 4 years, many take as much as 5 years to complete the program. The BSN must be completed with 5 years of entering the major. This is to ensure that a graduate's knowledge, skills, and competencies are equivalent to those required for licensure and practice as an entry level BSN RN. Exceptions may be considered by the Department of Nursing Chair. Created: October 2009; December 2013 Revised: May 2010, May 2012, December 2013, July 2015; February 2016, August 2016 ADVISEMENT AND REGISTRATION INFORMATION Academic Advisors It is ultimately the student s responsibility to know the academic policies of the University and of the Department of Nursing. Students should be familiar with the degree requirements as stated in the SAU Undergraduate Catalog and the critical deadlines and general information published in each schedule of courses. Students are expected to meet regularly with their advisor to develop their plans of study. The academic advisor is responsible for approving a student's plan of study. This is required before the student can register. Students must meet with their academic advisor or the Undergraduate Program Director prior to withdrawing from a nursing course, the program, or the university. Advance Registration/Late Registration SAU schedules advance registration periods in the fall for spring semester and in the spring for summer and fall semesters. It is your responsibility to make an appointment with your appointed advisor prior to this advanced registration period. 19

21 Progression Policies Good Standing. Once admitted, a student's progress in the baccalaureate program is reviewed routinely. To remain in good standing the student must: 1. Maintain a cumulative grade point average of Earn a minimum grade of "C" in all courses required for the major (nursing and nonnursing). 3. Observe the fundamental rules of ethical conduct as described in the American Nurses' Association Code for Nurses (2015) 4. Demonstrate the "Abilities and Skills for Admission to and the Progression within the Undergraduate Nursing Major". 5. Must make a C or better in ALL nursing and nursing support courses each semester to progress to the next semester in nursing. Any student with a D in a course applying toward the nursing degree will not be allowed to proceed until that specific course has been repeated and passed with a C or better. 6. Must perform satisfactorily in all clinical labs to progress to the next semester. 7. Is limited to ONE re-enrollment into the program. A student who does not successfully complete the course for any of the following reasons and then chooses to return to the nursing program has utilized their ONE re-enrollment opportunity. Receives a grade of D or F in the nursing course and then chooses to return to the nursing program. OR Withdraws/drops from a nursing course prior to completion of the semester and receives a W for any reason (See Returning Student Policy and Appeal Policy). If a student has withdrawn from a nursing course/nursing program because of a call to active military duty, this student may return to the program when active duty is completed by sending a letter requesting readmission to the Department of Nursing (See Returning Student Policy). If at any time one of these students withdraws or fails and then returns to the program, this is considered the student s one re-enrollment as outlined in the paragraph above. 8. Is assured procedural due process as established by the Department of Nursing and the University. 9. Standardized exams will be administered in courses throughout the curriculum with weight to be determined by course faculty. Due to the nature of professional training in the field of nursing, successful completion of academic courses provides only a partial indication of student competency. See the individual course ATI/standardized testing policies on the following pages. 20

22 Course Scheduling for Prelicensure Students. Courses in the nursing major are sequentially planned. This means that, unless otherwise specified, nursing courses must be successfully completed in the order and semester listed on the curriculum pattern. If a student is unsuccessful in one or two courses in one semester, the student will be allowed to continue in the nursing program by enrolling in the same course(s) the following semester (as space available). However, the unsuccessful attempt at the course or courses will result in graduation delay of at least one semester. Course Scheduling for RN-BSN Completion Students. NURS3001, NURS3003, NURS3403 must be completed or taken concurrently with clinical courses. The student is responsible for meeting via phone or with the RN to BSN advisor for course scheduling. Course Failures. Students with a failing grade of "D", "F", or "WF" in any required nursing course will not be permitted to enroll in those nursing courses that require the failed course as a prerequisite. The student must meet with their Advisor to complete the Alternate Progression Plan and submit the form to the Department of Nursing Admissions and Progression Committee (See Alternate Progression Form). Grade of "D", "F" or "WF" for any nursing course/required nursing course received during any two (2) nursing courses semesters mean the student will be dismissed from the nursing program and will not be eligible for readmission. Course or University Withdrawals. Students must meet with their academic advisor, course faculty, and/or the Undergraduate Program Director prior to withdrawing from either a nursing course or the Undergraduate Program. Any student who withdraws from any nursing course or the program for any reason (academic or nonacademic), must apply for readmission to the nursing program and submit an Alternate Progression plan to the Department of Nursing Admissions and Progression Committee Advisor(See Alternate Progression). Refer to the SAU Undergraduate catalogue handbook for university information regarding withdrawal. Students who withdraw must do so within the university's time frame to withdraw from a course (See University Handbook). Clinical Failure: A student, who has been notified by the faculty member that he/she has failed the course due to clinical performance, will receive grade of a D or F. 21

23 Readmission: To be considered for readmission, a student must submit a complete application for readmission to the Department of Nursing Admissions and Progression Committee. That application is due by March 1 for fall courses and by October 1 for spring courses. Readmission is neither automatic nor guaranteed and will be contingent on both program and individual factors. Alternate Progression Plan: To progress in the nursing major the student must continue to meet the criteria for good standing as stated previously. Students that meet the following criteria and receive approval from the Admissions and Progression Committee for an Alternate Progression Plan will be considered in good standing and are not required to apply for readmission. Criteria for submission of an Alternate Progression Plan include: 1. A student that receives a "D", "F", "W" or "WF" for one nursing course. 2. A student that deviates from a full time nursing pattern for any reason (academic or nonacademic). 3. A student that has not been dismissed from the program and is eligible for readmission. Submission of an Alternate Progression Plan includes: 1. Complete the information required on the form (Appendix) and review it with your academic advisor.(see Alternate Progression Form) 2. Submit the completed written request to the Admissions and Progression Committee within two weeks from the time the student becomes aware of a change in status. 3. The Admissions and Progression Committee will evaluate the proposed Alternate Progression Plan, and will provide the student with a written recommendation in a timely manner. Failure to adhere to an approved Alternate Progression Plan: If for any reason a student fails to adhere to the approved alternate progression plan, a revised progression plan following the same process as above must be submitted. Delayed Return: Any student who has been out of the nursing program longer than 12 months will be required to do additional coursework or repeat courses as deemed necessary by Department of Nursing Chair. 22

24 CHECK-OFF POLICY FOR RETURNING STUDENTS Students re-entering a BSN nursing clinical course must pass a comprehensive check-off prior to being allowed to proceed to the clinical area as stated in the Readmission Policy. A skills packet with review materials will be provided to each student by the Admissions and Progression Committee. There is a two (2) hour time limit for successful completion of both components of the check-off. The check-off contains two (2) components: 1. A written exam* o Incorporates common medication information, medication dosage calculations, medication administration skills, and general nursing skills. The written exam is given first. Upon successful completion of the exam with a 75% or better, the student may advance to the skills check-off component. 2. Skills check-off* o Performance of any or all basic nursing skills included in the Skills Review Packet. The BSN Director determines the skills to be performed; therefore, the student will be prepared to perform all skills. A student advances to this component ONLY AFTER successful completion of the written exam. The skills must be adequately performed to the satisfaction of the BSN Program Director/Course Coordinator, who determines whether the student has successfully passed or failed the check-off. *The student is only allowed one (1) failure of either of the two components. If two failures occur, the student is considered unprepared for re-entry and will be administratively dropped from the nursing program. Examples: (a) If the student fails the written exam on the first attempt, then both the second written exam attempt PLUS the first skills check-off must be successful for the student to remain in the program. In this situation, the one fail allowance occurs with the written component. (b) If the student passes the written exam on the first attempt, but fails the first attempt of the check-off, the student must then pass the second skills check-off attempt to remain in the program. In this situation, the one fail allowance occurs with the skills checkoff component. *Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Department of Nursing Chair Created: October 2009 Revised: December 2010, July 2015, August

28 Standardized Assessment Policy NURS3206 Foundations, NURS3203 Pharmacology, NURS3083 Mental Health NURS3306 Acute Care, NURS4207 OB, and NURS4207 PEDS The student will take two (2) proctored standardized assessments as part of the course requirements to verify mastery of course concepts. Each proctored standardized assessment will be weighted as 5% of the course grade (total of 10%). The expectation is that a student will score the benchmark of Level II. This achievement demonstrates mastery in course content area required to support academic readiness for subsequent curricular content. If a level II or higher is not achieved after the student s first attempt, a required remediation will be implemented (see Remediation Process below) o If the student has not achieved a Level II or higher after the second exam and completes the course with a letter grade of C or higher, the student will automatically be enrolled in a mandatory remediation course. Students will be required to complete a non-proctored practice assessment and submit documentation to verify completion prior to each proctored standardized assessment. The nonproctored practice assessments will be taken in the following order. Version A prior to the 1 st proctored standardized assessment. Version B prior to the 2 nd proctored standardized assessment. Students must achieve a score of greater than or equal to 90% on the practice assessment. o Students may take the practice assessment as many times as needed to achieve the minimum 90% score; however, the 90% must be achieved 24 hours prior to the scheduled proctored standardized assessment. Students will have a 4 hour lock-out between practice assessments. Failure to achieve a 90% on the non-proctored practice assessment 24 hours prior to the proctored standardized examination will result in a 10% deduction per day from the proctored assessment grade. See individual course calendars for assessment dates. Remediation Process After the first proctored standardized assessment, students not achieving a level II will be required to complete the following: a. Create a focused review within Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI). b.
