1 Nursing Program Review Report Department ING Program Recorder Teri Wisdorf Participants Anne Elliott, Kristi Kelly, Carol Dye, Barbara Hansmeier, Miki Gemmel, Maureen Marshall, Sandy Morisette, Sue Frosch-Erickson, Kim Kvale, Pam Buhl, Lora Kincade, Mary Stephens, Carrie Dickson, Judy Hubal, Miki Gemmel, Lisa Marien, Barb Hallblade ALIGNMENT 1. To what degree do your department statements (mission, vision & goals) align with those of Inver Hills CC and MNSCU? The Nursing Program s mission, vision and purpose align with those of Inver Hills CC and MnSCU as we are similar in our focus to improve student learning, success and encouraging life-long learning. We support diversity in our student body and prepare them to become culturally competent. The Nursing Program is committed to collaborating with educational, business and community organizations through our connections with the long-term, transitional care and acute care health centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. See attached comparison of mission, vision, and values for MnSCU, IHCC and the Nursing Program. 2. Where does your dept fit into the Strategic Plan? See attached explanation of the Nursing Program s relation to the Strategic Direction and Goals. 3. How will your dept help IHCC achieve the strategic goals? See attached explanation of the Nursing Program s relation to the Strategic Direction and Goals. CURRICULUM 1. Are your courses consistent with what is offered at the other schools? A thorough review of the Liberal Arts and Nursing Courses was completed in the formation of the Metro Alliance and it was found that the IHCC Nursing Courses are consistent with the offerings at other Nursing Programs. 2. Do they represent lower division course education requirements? The general education requirements for the Nursing program represent lower division courses. We have articulation agreements with one other BSN completion program. 3. Do they transfer as equivalent courses in the major? Through MNTC, all required courses within the nursing program, meet the requirements for the articulation agreement with other MnSCU schools. We hold articulation agreements with other programs within the MnSCU system. The specific Nursing courses are unique to each college. 4. Do they fulfill general education requirements? Or do they only count as electives? Liberal arts courses transfer to other colleges. Nursing courses are specific to our curriculum and will count towards BSN completion programs.
2 Curriculum Map 1. State your program/dept outcomes. See Attached Program Outcomes. 2. Create a chart indicating in which course each outcome is taught and assessed; and also indicate where the three college-wide outcomes (Communication, Critical Thinking and Civic Engagement) are taught. See attached Curriculum Map. 3. Analyze the result. If an outcome is not covered, is it truly a valued outcome or perhaps a course should be added or one modified to include that outcome? All program outcomes are incorporated throughout at least one of the Nursing courses. 4. If a course does not cover any of the outcomes, is it necessary? All nursing courses have most of the program outcomes within their course outcomes. This is to be reviewed at our upcoming Curriculum revision. 5. Attach Curriculum Map. See attached Curriculum Map COURSE OUTLINES 1. Is the course description still accurate? Yes, the course descriptions were reviewed and some minor changes will be made to take to Advisory Council in Fall Review each outline to be certain all learning outcomes are measurable and use learningcentered verbs. Each outcome is measurable and uses learning-centered verbs, as we need to also use these for NLNAC accreditation. 3. Review semester indication to be certain it truly represents when the course is consistently offered. The semester indication was reviewed on all courses and it is accurate. 4. Develop a two-year map of courses indicating in which semester all program required courses, Liberal Arts reqs, and electives should be taken. See attached 2 year map. 5. Discuss listed pre-reqs are they necessary, is recommended a better term, is there a term listed? Either a general biology or general chemistry is a prerequisite for admission to the nursing program. 6. Do you want Enrollment Services to block registration for students without the pre-req? Yes. Prerequisites are enforced per enrollment services for the nursing program. 7. Review MnTC goals and competencies listed for each course. Discuss how the competencies are a major part of the course and how faculty teach and assess each competency. One goal 6 course for fine arts or literature is required N/A for the rest of the nursing program 8. How is diversity and multiculturalism integrated within your curriculum? We have diversity and multiculturalism content threaded throughout our nursing curriculum. COURSE SYLLABI 1. Review individual syllabi for each course. Each course syllabi reviewed for accuracy and changed as needed. These proposed changes will go through Advisory Council this Fall Does each section list the learning outcomes the same as on the course outline? Yes 3. Are the assessment methods consistent with the course outline? Yes 4. Are the MnTC competencies and college-wide outcomes listed on the syllabus as additional outcomes, if they are not already part of the course outcomes? The college-wide outcomes are included in the course outcomes. 5. Does the syllabus accurately reflect the course outline? All syllabi reflect the course outlines.
3 6. How does the syllabus address the needs of diverse students? Most syllabi address different types of diversity, and the ones that do not, we are recommending a change to include this. ARTICULATION Programs Only 1. List articulation agreements. When was each last reviewed? If > 5 yrs, need to renegotiate. See attached articulation agreements. MnSCU wide is dated 1998, Metro State and Inver agreement is dated Does your dept have a pre-major track for the AS degree? If not, consider developing a sequence of courses (10-20 cr.) that a student should take in order to transfer into the major at the junior level. A pre-major track needs one articulation agreement. We do not have a pre-major track and the counselors have the students on track through the Liberal Arts and Science courses. INTERNAL PARTNERSHIPS 1. Describe academic partnerships your dept has with other depts. on campus. We have partnerships with the Science dept and Math dept. 2. Are there any concerns from either dept concerning course work or student academic achievement within these courses? No concerns. We need to maintain communication regarding prerequisites and student achievement with both departments. 3. Review course requirements for programs offered at IHCC to see if any require courses from your discipline. No other courses at IHCC require courses from the Nursing Course list. ENROLLMENT 1. Examine past three yr enrollment and demographic trends in all courses and sections. Past three year enrollment = 110 students per academic year entering 1020/1025. Current average retention rate for graduating on time- Traditional track = 81%; Completing within 3 years 87%. Current retention rate for LPN/Paramedic Mobility track = 93%. See attached demographic trends. 2. Look at faculty/student ratio. Current faculty student ratio is 10 students/per nursing instructor in the clinical areas. 3. Evaluate composition of students by gender, racial-ethnic background and disabilities. See attached Diversity survey done each semester. 4. Make recommendations concerning scheduling for the next few years to address any discovered concerns. Recommendations from faculty regarding enrollment: Discuss with other community colleges the student to faculty ratio with clinicals. Aware of mandations at 8:1. Concern shared with present 10:1 ratio. Continue to struggle with maintaining core faculty. Concern with enough master-qualified faculty to teach such a large number of students (referencing adjunct). As we continue to pursue on-line learning, faculty need technical support and faculty education as to excellence in on-line teaching. Faculty feel fatigued to have continual accreditation processes with NLNAC, BON, and AQUIP.
4 COMPLETERS Programs Only 1. Review occupational employment stats for grads or transfers within your program. Discuss trends or concerns. Employment in Nursing Graduates is based on the students passage of the NCLE-RN examination. We currently have an 88% passing rate on first time exam takers. Employment for Associate Degree RNs, after passing NCLE-RN, has been decreasing in the past few years, but is holding steady. See attached info on RN Workforce. STUDENT LEARNING 1. Summarize the investigations and results of the past 3 yrs of SAAP forms. Develop a 6 yr cycle to review all the courses in the program using individual and program SAAP. See attached 3 years of SAAP forms. 6 year cycle to review would be to follow requested IHCC SAAPs, as these incorporate all our faculty and Nursing courses. The Nursing Program goes through NLNAC every eight years and Board of Nursing approval every 10 years. Through these processes, we will be evaluated thoroughly. 2. Examine failure/withdrawal rates for all courses. If the dept average is highly deviant from the IHCC average, speculate reasons for this. ( What is IHCC average? ) The failure/withdrawal rate for the past three years in the Nursing program are as follows: Entry in: 2004 = 16%; 2005 = 8.5%; 2006 = 19% - these numbers are variable and we cannot attribute this to any concrete data. We are continually evaluating our admission criteria and selection process. We also look at the pass-rates at NCLE = generally 84-92%. 3. Review internship agreements. All facility and preceptor contracts are handled through Century College. Preceptor placements are handled through coordinators at each campus. These were reviewed for dates and accuracy. 4. Examine level of success students have upon transfer from the program. We are a completion program, so the students do not transfer. Students are encouraged to continue to a bachelor program to complete the BSN. STUDENT FEEDBACK ON TEACHING AND LEARNING 1. Review findings on student learning surveys on the J drive. Student learning findings reviewed. IHCC Student centeredness higher than national average in 2006 and higher than MnSCU comparison group for 2003, 2004 & Instructional effectiveness at IHCC is higher than the national average for2006 and higher for MnSCU group for 2003 & Where IHCC is better than the national average, indicate what your dept has done to foster these attitudes. The Nursing Faculty have fostered student learning by having instructor lead clinical groups and working one on one with students, coaching them through theory and clinical experiences each semester. Re: Instructional effectiveness The Nursing Faculty continually strive to have an active classroom, involving the students in learning, and increasing our online course offerings. We offer Honors projects and Internships, above the usual course requirements, which encourage higher functioning students to thrive. We survey the students at the end of each semester, mid-program and a graduate survey to keep up with student feedback. Faculty reviews all student surveys during general faculty meeting. See systematic program evaluation for level of achievement and action plan. 3. Where IHCC is worse, indicate what your dept can do to close the gap. NA
5 RESOURCES 1. Review library holdings. Speak w/ librarian about any concerns. Reviewed annually per NLNAC via the Student/Resources Committee. Library holdings are adequate with a multitude available via the catalogs online. 2. Review web site, catalog, faculty web sites and promotional material for dept. (Supply URLs for individual websites.) Teri is currently working with marketing for updates to the nursing website and our Nursing Brochures. Some faculty have individual websites, some do not want these. All faculty information and picture is available on the D2L Nursing Home Page. 3. Inventory equipment and supplies. Create a 3 yr purchasing plan state what you need! See attached 3 year purchasing plan. COST ANALYSIS 1. Evaluate program cost w/i IHCC and across MnSCU. If program is above mean, what factors influenced it? See Cost Analysis - attached 2. What possible ways are there to reduce cost and maintain high standards of student learning? The Nursing Faculty utilize resources and reusing resources to the best of our knowledge. In our nursing lab, we use old blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes and manikins. We refill vials of solution for medication administration practice and also teach the students to be frugal. 3. Review dept budget and expenditures for past 3 yrs. We have not spent much on supplies during the past three years and we are at the point where we need to replace some equipment. 4. Relate the budget to your 3 yr plan for equipment and supply purchasing. We have a very busy Nursing Program and we badly need a remodel of our Nursing Lab, plus we need a second Nursing Lab for our NA program and the Nursing overflow, where we could use the second lab as a Lab classroom. FACULTY 1. List faculty members, FT, PT and adjunct; and their academic profiles, including strengths and areas of expertise. See attached nursing faculty grid. 2. What are the faculty development needs for your dept. As Nursing Faculty, it is imperative that we attend various conferences to keep up with our ever-changing technology in the work place. So, we need many more $$ to send faculty to one conference per year. We are estimating ~ $1000/faculty to attend these important conferences. We would then have the faculty present their learning at a Nursing Faculty mtg, so we all can benefit. 3. How do assure a commitment to diversity, esp. multiculturalism, during the hiring process? We have search committees whenever we have any faculty openings and we have to choose the best candidate for the position. The choice depends on the type of Nursing degree earned, clinical and teaching experience. The applications can then be reviewed to make sure we are not discriminatory. 4. Discuss succession planning for your faculty members nearing retirement. We have one faculty member retiring after this Spring 09 semester. We have placed an open unlimited position to
6 replace her and are currently interviewing for this position. If we are aware of retirements, we usually post within the semester the faculty member is leaving, so we can hire, and therefore, have a good orientation to prepare for the transition. GOALS AND ACTION PLAN 1. Conduct a SWOT Analysis for dept. Consider areas of curriculum and faculty/personnel, facilities, and equipment. include other areas as necessary. See attached SWOT Analysis. 2. Define departmental goals for the next 3 yrs. Working on major curriculum revision. Advancing our on-line opportunities. We are evaluating present online learning and identifying expansion potential. Continual evaluation of present program in order to maintain a standard of excellence with a high quality nursing program to meet the needs of the community in a continually evolving healthcare environment. 3. Develop an Action Plan which lists your goals and other items needing to be worked on over the next 3 yrs and name resp. parties and timelines for each item. See Action Plan attached.

9 Inver Hills Community College Strategic Directions and Goals with Nursing Program Support Strategic Direction: Quality Academic Programming to Meet Student Needs Prepare students with innovative programming sensitive to cultural and societal trends, business needs, students occupational goals, and new technologies Explore evolving instruction methods and incorporate best practices. Assure quality of instruction and learning as documented by internal and external review and verifiable data. Nursing Program Support: The Nursing Program encourages diversity in our admission process and in our training of students in cultural and societal trends. Our goals are to prepare students to graduate and take the NCLE-RN exam and to be hired as Registered Nurses. We use the latest technologies in our education through the use of D2L, an Athens electronic medical record and an online course; and we incorporate best practices in instructional methods. Internally, after each nursing course, the Nursing Program collect, reviews and makes changes based on student evaluations. We also have a Strategic Plan for Evaluation of our Program from the National League of Nursing Accreditation Council (NLNAC,) in which we base our committee work upon. We undergo formal external review through regular accreditations from the NLNAC, as well as routine reviews through the MN Board of Nursing (BON). Also, part of the Nursing Program, are a series of courses for Nursing Assistant, the Home Health Aide and the Health Care Core Curriculum. The goals of these courses are to prepare students to be eligible to successfully complete the NA competency exam. These courses also prepare students to advance into our professional nursing courses. Strategic Direction: Student Success Provide a welcoming environment for all students Ensure that students are prepared for a technological world Increase student persistence and goal attainment Nursing Program Support: The Inver Hills-Century Nursing Program conducts monthly Information sessions for prospective students as well as a current brochure outlining our admission requirements and the selection process for our ~500 applicants/year. Once accepted into the program, a formal Nursing Orientation Session is held for students approximately one month before their start date, providing opportunities to return their required health information and CPR certification, as well as instructions on how to register for the correct nursing classes. Each semester, an orientation is held for the incoming students to provide a smooth transition into the next semester. The use of technology is current and innovative, as we use online modules & courses, as well as using D2L to its capacity. On D2L, we have a Nursing Homepage and utilize and other course pages, in which the students are responsible to check frequently for announcements. We utilize the D2L testing for most of the exams in 3 out of 4 semesters, and therefore need many computer rooms on campus, which is a bit of a problem obtaining these. The Nursing Program is in the middle of trialing Athens, an electronic medical record (EMR) that simulates the wide variety of EMR the students are exposed to in the clinical settings. We also have a Simulation Lab, which began in 2008, now being housed at Century, but is to be opened at Inver in the Fall, Students exit our program with a wide variety of skills in technology.
10 The Nursing Program has begun a new study skills group this Fall, 2008, entitled Courage to Succeed. In this group, all students are encouraged to join, with an emphasis on the foreign-born, ESOL and first generation college students. The large group is separated into smaller groups which are mentored by our Retention Specialist, and other faculty. The faculty facilitates the study groups and holds test reviews before exams to help those that might be struggling with nursing content. We also have an Advisory Committee where we can bring students that are have violations or are not passing theory or clinical to advise them when having difficulty with theory or clinical. The Clinical Faculty also advises students on a continual basis and the Nursing Program Coordinator helps to advise prospective and current students with various issues. Strategic Direction: Collaboration and Partnership Increase access to higher education through collaboration with area schools and community agencies Explore partnerships and collaborations to implement alternative energy options. Increase collaborations with area businesses and professional and community organizations to meet emerging workforce needs. Nursing Program Support: The Nursing Faculty maintains memberships with our professional organizations and we must maintain our nursing license which requires obtaining a number of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per year. The IHCC Nursing Program collaborates with MnSCU Colleges through quarterly Director of Nursing of ADN Program meetings. Through the Metro Alliance, we collaborate with Metropolitan State University, which offers a BSN completion program for our ADN graduates. (See Appendix.) Students in each of the four semesters complete Service Learning Community Projects, including visits to Senior citizens, volunteering with vision and hearing screening, performing a teach/learn project with Head Start, and working with underserved populations. The curriculum includes application of nursing theory into clinical rotations at multiple Long Term Care, Transitional Care Units, and Acute Care Hospital settings around the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. In the final semester, the students complete a 4-6 week preceptorship in a variety of health care settings. The Nursing Program encourages students to carpool to clinical when possible, decreasing gasoline consumption for the student. We explore reducing paper waste by increasing our D2L usage and using electronic handouts. As stated above, we collaborate with area business, professional and community organizations maintaining good communication between these businesses and IHCC. Through associations with clinical sites, we strive to build and maintain lasting relationships for both current students and graduates of our nursing program. Strategic Direction: Valuing People Improve decision making processes. Invest in employee professional and personal development. Improve internal communication Nursing Program Support: The first statement in the mission of the IHCC Nursing Program is to help students become critical thinkers, an extremely important quality for all nurses. Through the clinical experiences, the faculty both model and encourage critical thinking in our assessment and evaluation of patient care. The Inver Hills/Century Nursing faculty makes group decisions either through team teaching courses and course meetings, as well as program decisions through a democratic process, where decisions are made by the faculty as a whole. Based on our NLNAC accreditation process, all part-time and full-time faculty have members on standing committees that evaluates and makes recommendations to improve the nursing
11 program. We also have an Advisory Committee which after much discussion makes decisions regarding students at risk of professional and academic performance. We participate in and present at professional days that are planned by the college. * We would like to improve our program by bringing back Best of Practice Days, where the Nursing Faculty meet together to discuss the whole curriculum changes and best of practice research that needs to be included in the curriculum. *We also feel the Faculty Development Funds need to be improved, to be equitable with the Nursing Faculty on the Century campus. The Nursing Program uses as the main communication between faculty and students. All nursing courses are team taught, so internal communication is extremely important. Course Meetings are regularly scheduled to discuss course specific issues. Meeting minutes are placed on D2L in for ease of access for the faculty.

Student FYE Instr. FTE Instr. Wages Ave. Enrol. Per Section Ave. FYE per FTE Ave. Wage per FTE Ave. Wage per FYE ,064, , Asst 2008 IHCC Aver , , , Analysis The Nursing and Nursing Assistant courses offered 135 sections of courses in one year. The number enrolled can be duplicative, as some students are enrolled in more than one Nursing course at one time. We run all four semesters of Nursing concurrently, as well as our Pathophysiology/ Pharmacology course. Our Nursing Assistant courses also run concurrently each semester. The average annual salary for Nursing Instructors is $78,161. This salary is slightly higher that IHCC salary, in attempt to keep up with Nursing Salary in practice, which we need to do to attract quality Nursing Faculty. This salary is at minimum levels compared with Nursing Practice, which is approaching $100,000 for Master-prepared Nurses. So, this may need to be increased to keep quality Nursing faculty. Our average student enrollment per section is lower than the IHCC average, as the clinical nursing instructor student ratio being limited in the clinical area at 10:1. Future practice in the clinical setting may be decreasing this ratio to 8:1.

19 Department: Nursing Participants: all Nursing Faculty SWOT Analysis Level Category Curriculum Faculty/Personnel Equipment/supplies Strengths Nursing is ahead in online learning and simulation and the faculty is strongly committed to both. Innovative, holistic curriculum which flows through the 4 semesters. Self-motivated Nursing Faculty that share resources and work well as a team. They also pursue an interest to build on the strength of the program. We are involved in new-hire mentoring in our orientation process. We are student-focused for success. The Learning Resource Center (Nursing Lab) continues to grow and improve in our methods of delivery of nursing education to the students. Weaknesses Opportunities 1. Curriculum needs revision Nursing Curriculum committee working on this. 2. Major weakness is lack of computerized classroom space, as we need all of our tests to be given from D2L. The NCLE-RN exam is a computerized test, so we need the entire 4 semesters to get the students ready for this type of testing. 1. Need Release time to revise curriculum. With changes in health care and online learning, the nursing curriculum needs major revision to stay current in health care delivery. 2. Need to build computer classrooms to fit 80 students. 1. Challenging to keep up communication d/t large size between two campuses and complex theory and clinical schedules. Not enough time to meet as Inver faculty, separate from Century. 2. Lack of faculty development funds to attend national conferences to help improve faculty knowledge in changing health care environment. This is a problem as Century s Funds are 3 times higher than Inver, and we are one nursing program. 1. Build in an Inver mtg once per semester. 2. Develop equitable faculty development funds between all MnSCU colleges. Threats Time/Money Time/ Money/Lack of equity between MnSCU colleges. 1. We have one Nursing Lab that needs to be shared by many groups, 4 Nursing semesters, and the Simulation experience in 3 semesters and 2 Nursing Assistant courses. 2. We have outdated equipment in: Beds/manikins, b/p cuffs, med administration equipment, + additional lab equipment We need to remodel one, and build another lab to create better learning opportunities for students. We also need to purchase new equipment for present needs. Money
