5 Updated December Conceptual Organization of the Master s Program Purpose The primary purpose of the graduate program in nursing is to prepare students for advanced practice in nursing. The program aims to prepare a graduate capable of assuming diverse leadership roles in clinical practice, thereby contributing to the advancement of the nursing profession while enhancing the quality of life for those that we serve. The program has a strong clinical emphasis and provides an opportunity for continuing career development. An educational environment is created in which scientific inquiry, role development and leadership behavior are synthesized to facilitate the implementation and advancement of nursing theory and to contribute to the scientific knowledge base needed for advanced clinical practice. The graduate program builds on the foundation established by undergraduate nursing education by providing experiences designed to increase the knowledge base necessary for advanced practice in nursing. This increased knowledge base includes developing expertise in scientific inquiry, specialized practice, and leadership skills. Philosophy of the Master s Program The faculty believes that all students begin graduate study with a basic understanding of the metaparadigm concepts of Person, Environment, Health and Nursing. These are conceptual areas commonly addressed in baccalaureate nursing education programs. Graduate study enables students to better understand and operationalize these concepts. The faculty respects the uniqueness of students basic preparation for professional nursing practice. Further, the faculty encourages them to build upon this foundation and to reflect, refine and evolve a professional philosophy and evidence-based framework for advanced practice in nursing. Universe. The synthesis of the major concepts of Person, Environment, Health, and Nursing. Together, these concepts provide the main focus for advanced practice of nursing, and define the contextual arena in which all professional activity occurs. Person: Persons are viewed as developing across the life span and are dynamic, complex and autonomous. As citizens of the world and members of a larger network of families, groups and communities, individuals strive to meet their basic human needs. Individuals are in constant interaction with other open systems and interpret the world according to their own contextual reality. In doing so, persons create their own subjective meanings about health, illness and well-being. As a result they have the right to fully participate in health care decisions that affect their quality of life.

6 Updated December Environment: Environment is the arena for human development and provides the conditions of persons to grow, change and meet (or not meet) their basic human needs. Additionally, the environment exerts social, cultural, political and religious norms that influence the behavior of individuals, families, groups and communities. Reciprocally, individuals, families, groups and communities influence the nature of the environment. Nursing: Nursing is a profession rooted in a humanistic philosophy and encompasses ethical standards resulting in a commitment to advocacy and social justice. Central to the practice of professional nursing is respect for the autonomy and dignity of all individuals without regard to gender, ethnicity, religion or class. Advanced practice in nursing is based on the synthesis of scientific, experiential, aesthetic and interpersonal knowledge. It is through the application of this synthesis that the profession advances for the purpose of meeting the healthcare needs of those served. Health: Health is a subjective state, rooted in experiences, values, and beliefs and is culturally defined and practiced. Health is influenced by life events that are biological, psychological, sociological and spiritual. Health is reflected in a person s ability to pursue their goals and desires and achieve a quality of life that produces satisfaction and happiness. Teaching-Learning Process: The primary mission of the Purdue University Calumet graduate program in nursing is to engage students in the teaching-learning process relevant to advanced practice in nursing. The faculty believes that this dynamic process is mutual, constantly evolving and provides the opportunity to both inspire and empower students. Through faculty and preceptor interactions and role modeling, students are challenged to implement critical thinking skills relevant to advanced practice decision making in the provision of evidence-based therapeutic intervention, to communicate effectively and to provide leadership that supports positive change. Furthermore, students are encouraged to value and assume responsibility for life-long learning. Program Objectives Advanced practice in nursing students are educated to: 1. Synthesize advanced nursing knowledge, patient preferences and best available evidence to make decisions for practice. 2. Provide leadership to influence delivery of healthcare to diverse populations in increasingly complex environments. 3. Operationalize role competencies appropriate to the area of nursing specialization. 4. Evolve a professional philosophy that reflects the humanistic values of nursing and a commitment to the discipline.

7 Updated December Curriculum Overview Concepts are ordered and related within the curriculum systematically. The core knowledge of nursing theory, sociocultural theory, evidence-based nursing practice, health promotion, ethics, and health policy form the basis of the curriculum. Grounding in the core concepts prepares students to move through the program to the advanced practice core and specialty courses. The faculty believes that this sequencing of curricular content best enables students to acquire the knowledge, attitudes and abilities necessary for advanced practice in nursing in an increasingly complex health care environment (see Figure 1). Figure 1 Conceptual Model for the Graduate Program Organizing Concepts Advanced Knowledge Base: Graduate education knowledge that builds upon the foundational nursing education and is informed by theory, evidence-based nursing practice, critical thinking, and humanistic values. Leadership: The ability to influence, guide and instill vision in people in order to effect practice change in professional, social, political and ethical situations that affect clients and the nursing universe. Decision Making for Practice: Selecting interventions and actions from alternatives that move patients/clients from a specified or desired outcome state in a clinical context of uncertainty. Core Concepts/Threads The program at the graduate level is built upon and includes the following major conceptual areas:

8 Updated December Theory: Systematically organized information from nursing and related disciplines. Theory enables the individual to understand conceptual relationships, to rationally view and critically analyze predictable as well as unpredictable nursing practice situations, and to effectively act upon the nursing universe at an advanced level. Evidence-Based Nursing Practice: The process by which nurses make practice decisions using the best available evidence, their clinical expertise, and patient preferences in the context of available resources. Best available evidence: Findings from the highest quality research and/or other sources of evidence that are appropriately designed to answer a question relevant to nursing practice and forms the basis of therapeutic intervention. The type of evidence, and therefore what is best, depends on the nature of the question, activity and the purpose. Clinical expertise: Knowledge that forms professional craft knowhow that arises from formal as well as informal experiences and reflection upon those experiences, externalized to others, analyzed and critiqued. Patient preferences: The relative value and meaning that patients place on varying health states that influence their autonomous choices regarding their healthcare. Available resources: Sociocultural, economic and human resources coupled with the political will within the context that nurses deliver care. Critical Thinking: The integration of a disposition toward inquiry with the processes of analyzing, evaluating and synthesizing relevant knowledge for the purpose of problem solving and developing creative approaches to nursing. Humanistic Values: A belief in the worth and dignity of every person in our universe. A commitment to humanistic values in nursing encourages compassion, reasoning and a striving to address issues of social injustice in order to make the world a better place to live for all humans regardless of race, ethnicity, or economic status. Therapeutic Intervention: A rational and deliberate nursing action based on theory, best available evidence, clinical expertise, patient preferences and available resources performed to enhance or support health. Communication: Dynamic process whereby participants transact ideas, information, and/or feelings through verbal, nonverbal, written or technological methods.

9 Updated December Role development: The process of attaining advanced practice in nursing role competencies/standards as defined by national organizations related to specific areas of specialization. Curriculum Options Overview of Areas of Concentration The College of Nursing offers three areas of concentration within the Master of Science program. These include Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), and Nurse Executive. Note that after February, 2012, admission to the Nurse Executive option was closed. We encourage potential Nurse Executive students to inquire about online Nurse Executive program options through the Department of Nursing at Indiana University/Purdue University Ft. Wayne: Full-Time/Part-Time Study Options Students in the traditional, non-online option, may choose to pursue their program on either a full-time or part-time basis. Students may switch from fulltime to part-time status and vice versa depending on space availability. Full-Time Study The full-time curriculum plan takes two years to complete beginning in fall semesters and ending with summer sessions. For students that opt to follow the full-time curriculum plan, we strongly advise them not to work full-time. Note that the full-time option is not currently available for the online students. Part-Time Study Many students opt to pursue their education on a part-time basis, taking one to two classes a semester. Most part-time students finish the program in three to four years. Note that the time limit to complete the program is 6 years from the term of admission. Students pursuing their program on a part-time basis must talk about their curriculum plan with their academic advisor in order to be certain they are taking courses in the correct sequence. Thesis Option Students may elect to complete NUR 698 Master s Thesis in addition to their required courses. Students interested in pursuing the thesis option should discuss this with their advisor. The thesis work will consist of assigned research, which will be recorded as satisfactory or unsatisfactory. The student must have three members of the graduate faculty serve on an examining committee, one of whom serves as chair of the committee.

10 Updated December The chair of the examining committee is responsible for guiding the student through the thesis process including proposal development and implementation of the research study. After the research is completed and the thesis written, the candidate will be given an oral examination in which he or she defends the thesis. The thesis must be prepared according to the University format described in the Manual for the Preparation of Graduate Theses, a copy of which may be obtained online at Course Descriptions Courses and Curriculum Plans Students can obtain course descriptions for all graduate courses by accessing the Course Descriptions link located under the student tab on the PUC website. The link to access course descriptions is:

Your options will be non degree, master s, or one of the post-master s certificate programs. Non-Degree Admission as a non-degree seeking student will depend on space availability. You will select non-degree if you are not ready to seek formal admission into the graduate program. This option is useful when there is not enough time to apply for regular admission, or if you are interested in taking just a few courses. If you select this option, you will only need to submit to the College of Nursing proof of your baccalaureate degree (e.g. a copy of your transcript or diploma). You will not be required to submit the remaining admission materials including the recommendations, statement of purpose, resume, license, or official transcripts. A criminal background check will also not be required at this time. Master s You will select this option if you are applying for regular admission into the program for either the Family Nurse Practitioner or Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist track.

24 Updated December them to mail their recommendation form directly to the College of Nursing office. The mailing address is listed below. Submitting a Statement of Purpose through the Application System The statement of purpose consists of words that address your purpose for undertaking graduate study, your reasons for choosing Purdue, career goals and research interests. We suggest that you submit the statement of purpose directly through the application program. As an alternative you can upload a document stating that you intend to submit this at a later date and then mail your statement to the College of Nursing office or it to the academic advisor for the graduate program. You will not be able to submit your application without uploading some form of documentation. Submitting a Resume through the Application System We suggest that you submit your curriculum vita or resume directly through the application program.

The results will be available in approximately hours. After your background check is complete, please call the College of Nursing graduate program secretary at and provide the password and the last four digits of your social security number. The graduate program secretary will then use this information to obtain the report. If you have questions, please call College of Nursing Mailing Address for Application Materials Heather M.

Additionally, all conditionally admitted students must take all courses, with the exception of NUR 65600, Health Policy and Economics, at the Calumet campus for their full tenure in the program. Conditionally admitted students who fail to meet the specified conditions of admission may be dismissed from the program.

26 Updated December Transfer of Credits A maximum of nine semester hours or equivalent of graduate credit may be used as transfer credit from another university. To be accepted, courses must fulfill curriculum requirements and must have been taken at a university that has national nursing accreditation. Additionally, a grade of the equivalent of 3.0 (on a 4 point scale) or higher must be present for any transfer course. All specialty and advanced core courses, including NUR 51000, Research and Evidence Based Nursing must be taken at PUC. A request for an exception to this policy will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Other core courses will be evaluated for equivalency and transferability. You will need to submit the syllabi for all courses you wish to have considered for transfer credit by the application deadline date. Appealing Denial of Admission Decisions Applicants that are denied admission or readmission into the Graduate Program are allowed to appeal these decisions. Applicants who wish to appeal an admission or readmission decision should contact the Chairperson of the Admission, Progression and Graduation Committee. The Chairperson will review the appeals process with the student. This process includes a written notification of the desire to appeal and an appearance at the next scheduled Admission Progression and Graduation Committee meeting. If the decision to deny admission is upheld by the Committee, applicants may submit a written appeal to the Dean of the College of Nursing. If applicants are not satisfied with the outcome of the appeal to the College of Nursing Dean, a written appeal may be sent to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
