5 INTRODUCTION Welcome to Southern Arkansas University s 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 accessible 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. Revised:May2011 5

6 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 The Department of Nursing clearly differentiates two types of nursing programs. They are: Associate degree nursing education prepares the graduate to function as an entry level registered nurse providing direct evidence-based care to persons as individuals and members of family/groups in a structured and unstructured health care setting. 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 client, the 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

7 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.

Therefore, all students in the nursing program are required to pass a standardized comprehensive computerized exam with a performance score of 78% or higher in order to fulfill NURS 4012 Synthesis course requirements. A. Students will have four (4) attempts to pass the computerized comprehensive standardized exam with a minimum performance score of 78% and obtain a final course grade of 78% or better. B. The first exam will be administered to students enrolled in NURS 4012 Synthesis during the twelfth week of the course. The student s standardized exam score will be used as the student s final exam grade for NURS 4012 Synthesis if the minimum performance score of 78% is obtained. C. Students with performance scores below 78% on the first exam will be required to retest. Retesting takes place during final exam week. The 15

16 student s computerized comprehensive standardized exam score will be used as the student s final exam grade for NURS 4012 Synthesis. D. Students with performance scores less than 78% on the second attempt will receive a D grade in the course and will not graduate. In order to take the third exam, the student must present documentation of completion of a NCLEX Review Course to the Department Chair within seven (7) weeks after the end of the semester.

18 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 (see pg. 17). A skills packet with review materials will be provided to each student by the Skills Lab Coordinator. 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 78% 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 Skills Lab Coordinator determines the skills to be performed; therefore, the student should 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 Skills Lab 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 check-off component. Created: October 2009 Revised: December

If the student still has not passed, the student will be offered the option of either enrolling in NURS 3206: Nursing Care Foundations, NURS 3203 Pharmacology, NURS 3093 Techniques of Health Assessment, and NURS 3103 Gerontological Nursing to begin the program or to return again the next semester to attempt to pass the check-off and be accepted into the program at the level last completed at the previous school. A packet will be given to the student to review NECESSARY skills prior to the checkoff. (See pg. 18) Created: October 2009 Revised: May 2010, December

20 Calculation of Nursing Curriculum Support Course (NCSC) GPA A minimum 2.6 NCSC GPA is required to enter the applicant pool for the nursing program. The following guidelines are used to calculate NCSC GPA: 1. Applicants who receive a course waiver will be noted as receiving an A. (Example: The applicant who does not have to take Composition I due to a high ACT or SAT score will record an A for Composition I.) 2. Transfer courses that are in compliance with SAU s Articulation Agreement will be calculated into the NCSC GPA. Courses not identified as transferable by the course title and SAU s Articulation Agreement will not be included in the NCSC GPA and will require completion of a substitution form by the student s nursing faculty advisor during the first semester of nursing course work. 3. D and F grades in NCSCs are recorded and calculated. 4. The most recent grade in repeated courses will be used for calculation of NCSC GPA. 5. Applicants repeating a (NCSC) more than 3 times will not be entered into the applicant pool. 6. The Department follows SAU policies regarding academic clemency. October 2009 ; December

21 ORGANIZATION OF LEARNING EXPERIENCES Each learning experience is designed to assist you in some way to meet the defined course objectives. Throughout the nursing education experience you may be exposed to the following: 1. General lecture sessions. These are large class meeting, which may include general announcements, instructor lectures, group presentations, special guest lecturers, and examinations/quizzes. 2. Small group sessions. These are small group meetings utilized for theory discussion and student participation. 3. Computer sessions. Computer lab time will be assigned per the class coordinator according to the class schedule. THE DEPARTMENT OF NURSING ADHERES TO THE UNIVERSITY POLICY REGARDING COMPUTER WORK AND PLAGIARISM. 4. Clinical laboratory sessions. The amount of time spent in clinical lab varies according to the nursing course. The laboratory facilities may include hospitals, mental health centers, doctor s offices, nursing homes, county health departments, and other designated health agencies. Each faculty member has no more than ten students in the clinical setting. Each clinical lab situation usually begins with a pre-conference, when general instructions are given, the clinical focus is determined, and individual student preparation is defined. The clinical lab session is usually concluded with a post-conference where students share experiences of the day. 5. Campus laboratory sessions. The amount of time spent in the campus lab varies according to the nursing course. The campus lab is held in the nursing building. These sessions are generally used to teach nursing techniques and skills. The sessions consist of orientation, discussion, and demonstration of skills and techniques by the faculty, with return demonstration by the student using patient care simulators. 6. Exam sessions. Unit exams will be given covering material from lecture, group sessions, campus labs, clinical labs, and computer sessions. Exams consist of, but are not limited to, multiple choice, true/false, short answer, listing, discussion, and essay. Dosage calculations are included on each exam. When using a computerized answer form, students will not be allowed to make additions or corrections once the form is turned in to the faculty member. Only the marks/answers provided on the computerized answer form will be accepted. Marks that are omitted (e.g. left blank, skipped), mismarked (e.g. student marks A instead of B ), or improperly marked (e.g. circle not completely bubbled in) are no exceptions. 7. Independent Study: Students are expected to complete the reading and written assignments as indicated in each unit of study. Additions and/or changes in these assignments may be made from time to time when necessary. 8. Distance Education: The Department of Nursing adheres to the University policy. Revised: May

22 COURSE GRADING POLICY 1. Grading: Grading* is as follows: 100%-90% = A 89%-84% = B 83% - 78% = C 77% -69% = D 68%-below = F *The course grade will be a composite of both components of theory and clinical and CANNOT be taken separately. The clinical experience is based on satisfactory or unsatisfactory performance; therefore, clinical will be pass/fail component of the course. All grades are final one week after which one of the following occurs on the latest date: posting in the Blackboard Grade Center or concept review for the exam. After this time, no grade changes will be made unless the faculty member has incorrectly entered the item score. A minimum grade of C is considered passing and is necessary in ALL nursing and nursing support courses to enroll in subsequent nursing courses (Comp I and II, all science courses...). A D grade is NOT considered as passing in any nursing or nursing support course. If a student makes D or lower in any nursing or nursing support course, the course must be repeated and passed, prior to progressing in the program. ALL NURSING COURSES MUST BE TAKEN IN SEQUENCE. 2. MAKE-UP EXAM POLICY: Format is dependent on individual faculty preference. Exam questions may be multiple choice, essay, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, or other format. Make-up exams will be given in the event of necessary absence (i.e., personal illness or death in the family) that occurs on the date of a regularly scheduled examination. The student must: Notify the appropriate faculty prior to the scheduled exam, and Schedule the make-up exam with the appropriate faculty within 1 week of the missed exam. Make-up exams will be completed within one week of the absence prior to the start of the next class time. In the event the student does not schedule or complete a make-up exam within one week s time, a zero will be assigned for that exam. The exam will be of equivalent credit to the exam missed. Exam Review: Appointments to review an exam must be scheduled with the instructor within five working days, not including the date of the exam. For example, if the exam is taken at 9:00 AM Wednesday, the student must make their request by 5:00 PM the following Wednesday. After that week, access to the exam will not be allowed. 3. QUIZ POLICY: No make-up opportunities for quizzes, classroom assignments, and/or projects toward quiz grade will be offered. In-class quiz opportunities missed due to required attendance at official university functions (including but not limited to participation in university sporting events, military service, and activities related to scholarships) will be exempt from the grade. 22

23 4. CLINICAL DISMISSAL: Any student who performs in an unsafe* manner may be dismissed from the clinical laboratory setting. Permanent exclusion from the clinical laboratory will result in FAILURE of the course, and the student will be dropped in accordance with University policy. *Unsafe is defined as any measure which the student does or fails to do that may result in physical or psychological harm to the patient, the patient s family, other personnel, or to the individual student. Created: October 2009 Revised: May 2010, May 2011, May 2013 CLASSROOM RESPONSIBILITIES: Students must: 1. Participate in discussion; ask questions when unsure about major concepts. 2. Request clarification of any information presented in reading materials, learning labs, or lectures. 3. Perform on written and oral examinations and written materials at a minimum of 78% to maintain acceptable standing in the course. All computerized answer forms and test booklets must be turned in at the completion of the exam and /or test review. Failure to return the exam to the instructor prior to leaving the classroom will result in the student receiving a 0 grade on the exam. 4. Submit all written materials on time or before. Late work will not be accepted for a grade. However, under extenuating circumstances, partial credit may be awarded at the faculty member s discretion. 5. Attend local and/or regional conferences and lectures as required. When appropriate and available to enhance learning, students will be asked to attend such programs as part of the class assignment and for their professional growth. You may be asked to pay a minimal registration fee for some of these educational opportunities. 6.

Revised: May 2010 ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY: The faculty believes that honesty is a hallmark of professionalism, and academic dishonesty is viewed in the nursing department as unprofessional conduct and will not be tolerated. The faculty follows the University Student Handbook policy (p.34) for academic integrity. Excerpts from this policy are below. PLAGIARISM: According to the SAU catalog, plagiarism is the act of taking and or using the ideas, work, and/or writings of another person as one s own. Plagiarism is not acceptable for any required written work. Any student who plagiarizes maybe subject to receiving a zero on written work, may fail the course, and may be dismissed from the program (See University Student Handbook). Students should use the following guidelines when referencing material: 1. The use of exact words from the writings of another requires direct quoting and an appropriate reference using scientific notations. 2. Paraphrasing is defined as a restatement of a text, passage or work, but not the use of the original writer s exact words. Paraphrasing requires an appropriate reference using scientific notation. 3. Tables, photographs, models, figures, and illustrations as well as written text constitutes works of another and must be footnoted. 4. Inaccurate information on footnotes and scientific notations, while not falling within the definition of plagiarism, constitutes questionable writing methods and is negatively sanctioned on grading. 24

25 Discipline for Plagiarism or Cheating: Each instructor will decide on a case-by-case basis what penalty will be given to the student for his or her academic misconduct; such penalties are described in the table below. Infraction Automatic Penalties Possible Penalties unless exonerated by appeal First 1. Referral to Academic Integrity Workshop 2. Instructor sanction 1. Permanent record in Registrar s Office 2.

Recommending University sanctions, including disciplinary suspension, dismissal, or expulsion from the University. Appeal Policy Students may appeal an action of a faculty member under the Academic Integrity Policy if the penalty involves a course grade reduction or a recommendation for academic suspension from the University. The appeal will be filed with the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The respective school Grade Appeals Committee will review appeals involving grades. The Academic Suspension Appeals Committee will review appeals involving suspension. Created: October 2009 Revised: May 2010; December
