1 ADN Nursing Program Curriculum Transition Update

2 ADN Program Transition Statement Following a rigorous review, the faculty identified the need to update the ADN Program Curriculum to more accurately reflect the current standards of accreditation, nursing education, and practice. As a result, an updated curriculum, including new program mission/vision/philosophy and student learning outcome statements, was written and will be implemented during the fall 2013 semester. Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process that uses peer review to determine if academic programs meet public confidence. Students benefit from accreditation through availability of financial aid under Title IV, qualification to attend other accredited schools when pursuing higher degrees, and a competitive edge in the job market. This program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission on Education in Nursing (ACEN), formerly the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), with warning. Having our on-going accreditation placed on warning status means that concerns were identified during an accreditation visit in 2011 that required immediate attention. When a program is placed on warning, it is awarded accreditation for a shorter period than is otherwise typical and is subject to a full site visit in two years following the most recent comprehensive program evaluation. Not receiving full accreditation for this program is unprecedented by the College. The nursing program has had a long history of ACEN accreditation, holding continued accreditation status since We believe that our nursing program is outstanding and we are proud of the successes we have had to date. The College understands the areas of concern raised by the ACEN and is working diligently to meet all ACEN standards by the time of the next scheduled evaluation visit. Through accreditation and curriculum review activities, it was determined that the previous ADN nursing program curriculum, as written, failed to reflect on-going faculty efforts to remain current in the classroom and clinical areas. More specifically, it was identified that over time, the program had suffered a curriculum drift in that changes were being made at the course level that were not reflected in the program s mission/philosophy or student learning outcomes. In response, the faculty found it necessary to review, revise, and update the entire curriculum, beginning with the nursing education unit s mission, vision, and philosophy. The current curriculum was fully approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing in January of 2013 for implementation during the Fall 2013 semester. Input is pending from the ACEN. A period of transition was held during the academic year and students were provided with documentation that verified the integrity of the previous curriculum within the current curriculum that will be implemented in the fall The faculty is confident that students will benefit from the transition to the current curriculum as it more accurately reflects current standards in nursing education and practice. Cross-over documentation has been left in the current Student Information Handbook for use as reference for students that are interested in reviewing the comparability between the previous and current curricula.

3 A well-written curriculum enables the student to become a successful learner. Considering the complexity of the nursing curriculum, it is essential that our students and community/clinical partners have a solid understanding of the foundation of the program, identifiable through our mission/vision/philosophy statements, and an understanding of expectations placed on students in terms of program and course-level student learning outcomes. The intention of these documents is to provide detailed information regarding curricular changes. After reviewing the documents, if you have additional questions regarding the nursing program s accreditation, current accreditation-related activities, or the transition to the updated curriculum, please feel free to contact me, Lori (Nursing Program Coordinator), Rachel (Administrative Assistant) or any member of the full-time faculty. Sincerely, Kim Lindquist, MSN, RN Dean of Health Sciences/Director of Nursing Revised 6/13
