10 10 Nursing Education at the University of Windsor An Historic Glimpse Since 1955, nursing has been a vital part of the milieu and programs of the University of Windsor. The first courses were for post-basic (RN) nurses who wished certification in occupational health, public health and teaching. Demands for these courses were high. Graduates went on to contribute greatly to the professionalization of nursing in Ontario, Canada, the U.S.A. and around the world. The Generic (Plan I) undergraduate BScN program began in In 1976, a new official curricular framework was adopted as the structure linking courses together in a meaningful way as the School of Nursing moved from the Faculty of Arts to the Faculty of Science and then to an independent Faculty in July 1, Our Deans of Nursing over the years have been leaders in nursing education, research, delivery and practice of nursing care. Their photographs are on the wall outside the Dean's office (3 rd floor, Toldo, room 336). The late Florence Roach was the first Dean followed by Professor Anna Gupta (retired), Dr. Anna Temple, Dr. Janet Rosenbaum (retired), Dr. Sheila Cameron (retired), Dr. Martha E. Horsburgh, Dr. Sheila Dresen (retired), Dr. Elaine Duffy, Ms. Gwendolyn Ebbett, and currently Dr. Linda Patrick. Under their direction, the Faculty of Nursing has grown and gained recognition within the university community and throughout the field of health care. Many of the professors who will be teaching and helping you in your quest for learning have been affiliated with the school for ten years or more: many are alumni. They bring a desire to guide and facilitate your learning and mastery of the elements that come together to form a creative, caring, competent and mature graduate who will contribute to societal wellbeing and be proud of his/her achievements. Over the years, alumni(ae) have generously responded to the requests of the school for ongoing support and monetary assistance. Donations have been used to purchase laboratory equipment, sponsor scholarships and bursaries, speakers and workshops and other endeavours to enhance learning. We are proud to tell you that our alumni(ae) reach out around the world and are in many fulfilling positions. Graduates keep in contact through Alumnae events to celebrate their lives and share their stores. When you graduate, you will automatically become an alumnus/ae and take on a new role within this institution, nursing and the fellowship of nursing - forever. You will be invited to keep in touch and contribute to special projects. You are part of the future NOW, and are invited to join in events and services supported by your alumni(ae). Undergraduate and Graduate Nursing students at the University of Windsor share a quest for knowledge and self-growth. We hope you will find many supportive peers and mentors as well as inspirational role models among your colleagues and faculty. Believe it or not, your entire faculty were nursing students at one time too! We can empathize with your worries, frustrations, achievements and experiences. Share some time with your professors as they have much to share beyond the covers of books or electronic networks! Our school is privileged to have had an affiliation with the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) in Irbid, Jordan. This project began in the early 1990's under the direction of Dr. Sheila Cameron who successfully received federal CIDA grants. The Faculty of Nursing continues International Outreach to other countries through student and faculty exchanges to

11 places such as Sweden, Australia, and England. Many of our faculty have travelled internationally to teach, share, present scholarly papers, attend international conferences and help create nursing and health delivery programs. Our Faculty of Nursing values cultural diversity and outreach to other cultures. We seek to promote nursing education, research, leadership and practice internationally. As a result of our international activities, the Faculty of Nursing was designated as World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre in Nursing, an affiliate of the WHO Collaborating Centre at McMaster University Faculty of Nursing in June, Interest in population health issues and social justice continues. Our school fosters interdisciplinary and international collaboration. As well as global outreach, many faculty, alumnae/alumni and students participate in national and international events, research projects, consortiums and organizations. Each faculty member has one or more areas of scholarly interest in which they are writing, studying, researching and speaking. These academic activities continue throughout the year and often require faculty to be away from their offices. These activities are vital to the health and vigour of this academic setting and contribute to the goals, mission and purpose of this university and our Faculty of Nursing. We are a nationally accredited program demonstrating excellence in nursing education, leadership, research and practice! We hope you will share this enthusiasm as well and become involved! To be granted national accreditation status means that the program you are part of meets prescribed standards and is of excellent quality, reflecting relevance, relatedness, accountability and uniqueness of scholarly and practical elements. This is a great place to be. We value teaching and invest in research. Our learning centred focus supports the University goals and vision. History of the Collaborative Program Refer to Programs, Collaborative Honours Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Hons BscN), History of Collaboration On December 10th, 1998, based on recommendations from an expert working group, the Council of the College of Nurses of Ontario approved the following motions: 1. That the educational component of the College of Nurses RN entry to practice requirements identifies graduation from an Ontario nursing program that...confers a baccalaureate nursing degree, effective January 1, 2005". 2. That... The college and university systems collaborate as partners in effecting the educational reforms necessary to support these recommendations That the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities develop and implement measures that support changes to the RN educational system that are necessary for the achievement of baccalaureate entry by January, In February, 2000, the regulation amendment necessary to implement these recommendations was passed by the government of Ontario and came into effect. 11 In southern Ontario, there were three institutions offering nursing education programs: Lambton College of Applied Arts and Technology in Sarnia; St. Clair College of Applied Arts and Technology in Windsor and Chatham; and the University of Windsor. A nursing collaboration Steering Committee comprised of representatives from all three educational

12 12 institutions was established and began meeting regarding this project in January Members of the Steering Committee were Bob Henry and Judy Oliver from Lambton, Pat McMahon and JoAn Dale from St. Clair, and Drs. Beth Horsburgh, Anna Temple and Barbara Thomas from the University of Windsor. The Steering Committee agreed on a common goal - to provide leadership in the development of a collaborative baccalaureate nursing program that would be offered by the three partner schools, utilizing both college and university resources. Following a review of models of collaboration developed in other provinces, various position papers, and discussion of internal and external issues and forces pertaining to the project, a plan of action was developed. A second group of representative faculty members from the three institutions were appointed to a Collaborative Curriculum Committee. They began meeting to set the direction for the curriculum design, taking into consideration CNO professional and registration requirements, suggestions for change made by the accrediting body that had approved the University s program in 1998, and the preparation that would be required to meet future practice expectations. The goal was to produce graduates who would serve the needs of society in the 21st century through health promotion, health maintenance, prevention of disease, and care of the sick and dying. Members of the Collaborative Curriculum Committee were Lillian French (Windsor campus) and Elizabeth Green (Thames campus) from St. Clair College, Drs. Kaye Fawdry, Anne Snowdon and Lynnette Stammler from the University of Windsor, and Judy Oliver from Lambton College. Over the next several months, a contract outlining the terms of the partnership between the three institutions was worked out and passed by each institution s Board of Governors. A twoday workshop was arranged to assist faculty members adapt to the new requirements by the CNO that nursing ability would be measured in terms of competencies (i.e., what the nurse needs to be able to do) rather than merely by demonstrating knowledge. A small team of faculty members was identified to develop specific content for the first nursing course to be taught in the new curriculum. Faculty members from the Science and Arts and Social Sciences departments in the three institutions made contact to discuss ways of standardizing content in courses required of nursing students. The Steering Committee put together and received approval for a proposal applying for start-up funding available from the government. On April 5, 2001, the formal agreement between the three institutions was signed by their respective Vice- Presidents in a public ceremony intended to celebrate the event. The first class of students was admitted to the Collaborative Baccalaureate Nursing Program in September Students began their classes at either Lambton College (Sarnia), the University of Windsor, or St. Clair College (Windsor campus). In September 2002, the St. Clair College Thames campus in Chatham also became a site for this Collaborative Program. The curriculum model provides for the first two years of the program to be offered on all four sites. All college students then move to the University of Windsor campus for their third year courses and the first semester of their fourth year. They conclude their program by registering on their original home campus for the second semester of the fourth year. The first class of this new program received their Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at the University of Windsor convocation held in June 2005.

14 14 Pre-Clinical Requirements Nursing Program Policies Clearance Process: Students are responsible for making an appointment online (www.uwindsor.requisite.ca) with a company called "ParaMed" to be cleared prior to their clinical course and clinical placements. This clearance only needs to be done once per year - for most students, this takes place before they enter the fall semester. Appointments can only be made at the Windsor location. ParaMed's Windsor address is 215 Eugenie Street West, Suite #106, Main Floor, Windsor, Ontario N8X 2X7. Note: Students must be registered in their clinical or program course prior to making the ParaMed appointment. Students will bring all of their completed requirements / documents (immunizations, police clearance report, etc.) along with a photocopy of all document to a nurse at the ParaMed office who specializes in the collection of student forms. This "requisite nurse" will then let the student know whether they are "cleared" to go to clinical or "not cleared" meaning they have something outstanding. If the student is "not cleared", they will have to make one or more additional appointments until they are "cleared" for clinical. Students will be charged a fee for each visit to the ParaMed office. This is why it is vitally important that students have all required documentation and photocopies ready at the time of their first appointment. Students are responsible to download the medical / non-medical forms they need for clinical placements that will be available on the Faculty of Nursing website (www.uwindsor.ca/nursing ). A checklist of requirements is also included with the medical form so that students can see what they need. Please read over the updated presentation and information package on the nursing website as some of the program medical / non-medical requirements have changed from last year. More detail regarding the immunizations/tests needed will be found on the medical forms when you download them from the Faculty of Nursing website. Please note the deadlines for clearance are provided on the nursing website and in the information package. If you use a local police agency, you will require a letter to explain the need for the police clearance for vulnerable populations, and will be required to complete specific form. You must complete and take these forms to the appropriate police agency at least eight weeks prior to your ParaMed appointment so that you will have your completed police clearance to take to your appointment. The original police clearance as well as a photocopy must be taken to your ParaMed appointment. Police clearance letters and forms can be obtained on the nursing website.

15 15 Program Regulations Please see program regulations listed in the Undergraduate Calendar.

16 16 Social Media Policy What is Social Media? Social media refers to online technologies and practices that are used to share information and opinions, host conversations and build relationships. It can involve a variety of formats, including text messaging, pictures, videos, audio and live, real-time dialogues of a few, or thousands of participants. Examples of social media include but are not limited to discussion forums, blogs, social networks, wikis, and podcasts. The Faculty of Nursing supports the use of social media as an instructional tool. In this instance, sharing of information must occur through the Collaborative Learning Environment Windsor (CLEW) platform or other University of Windsor approved platforms. We also recognize that students use social media networks outside of the classroom. The following policies and guidelines provide overall policies for social networking within the Faculty of Nursing, and guidelines for individual social media use. Overall Policies: 1. Use of social media for non-academic purposes is not permitted during any clinical experience. 2. Students may not access agency computers for personal use. 3. Use of cell phones is not permitted during clinical hours, unless required for an emergency purpose, and when there is no other means of contact available. In this situation, the student will discuss this need with the clinical instructor prior to use. 4. Unauthorized use of social media, cell phones, or the internet in the clinical setting will result in removal of the student from the clinical area. 5. Students are prohibited from posting any private or confidential content, including client health information on any social media site, even if client identifiers are removed. This also includes images of clients, agencies, staff, volunteers, visitors, or family. 6. Social media behaviours must be consistent with the following CNO Standards and Practice Guidelines: Ethical Framework, Nurse-Client Relationship, and Documentation. The failure of any student to conform to these Standards, while using any social media site, may result in dismissal from the program. Guidelines for CLEW/Intranet Site Networking: 1. Please refer to the overall policies. 2. Be respectful and professional to peers, faculty and staff in all interactions. You are more likely to be effective when applying a constructive and respectful approach to discussion and debate. 3. Do not use personal insults, obscenity or engage in any conduct that is not consistent with the CNO Standards. 4. Show proper consideration for other s privacy, and for topics that may be considered sensitive.

17 5. Assess acceptability of your message before posting. If the content of your message would not be acceptable for face-to-face conversation, over the telephone, or in another medium, it is not acceptable for posting. 17 Guidelines for Personal Networking: 1. Respect Faculty of Nursing time and resources. You should participate in nonacademic social media conversations on your own time. Ensure that your blogging and social networking activity does not interfere with your academic commitments and engagement in learning. 2. Maintain confidentiality and privacy. Do not post confidential information about the Faculty of Nursing, its students, faculty or its clinical placement agencies including their staff and clients. 3. Be aware of liability. Students are responsible for the content that is posted on their own sites, and on those of others. 4. Avoid using unprofessional online personas. Do not post defamatory, libelous or obscene content. Employers may conduct web searches on candidates before extending offers. Search engines can recall posts and pictures years after publication. Post only pictures that you would be comfortable sharing with the general public. (Adapted from the Government of Nova Scotia and the University of Michigan in compliance with Bill 168 and the proposed University of Windsor Code of Civility) Conflict of Interest Policy: Personal/Familial Relationships in Clinical Students are expected to report immediately to one of the Faculty of Nursing Clinical Coordinators if one or more of the following applies: a) A student has a family member in their clinical group; b) A student has been assigned to a clinical setting in which they are employed; c) A student has been assigned to a clinical setting in which one of their family members is employed or is a patient; d) A student has been assigned to a clinical instructor, faculty advisor or preceptor who is related to them. In any of the above situations, students will be re-assigned to a clinical area where there is no relational conflict. Family members include: sister, brother, mother, father, spouse, significant other, daughter, nephew, niece, uncle, aunt, cousin, or in-laws.

18 18 Gift Giving Policy Students are not to provide gifts to preceptors, instructors, or faculty. This is in keeping with the CNO practice. Substance misuse/ abuse statement Where the misuse/abuse of substances interferes with safe and competent performance (clinical and theory) and physical health, students may be removed from the setting; asked to meet with the Associate Dean; directed to seek counselling and treatment; asked to withdraw voluntarily; and/or be dismissed from the program. Violent Unethical & Illegal Behaviour Zero tolerance Unethical and/or Unsafe Nursing Care The Faculty of Nursing reserves the right to remove a nursing student from the clinical area at any time, in instances where the instructor has reason to believe and documents and reports to the Clinical Practice Facilitator and/or Level Coordinator that the student is rendering unsafe and/or unethical nursing care. Students are required to report back to the University to the Level Coordinator to discuss their performance either immediately or the next business day. Students must not return to clinical placement until an investigation is completed and solution is documented. Academic Policies and Protocols Academic Counseling and/or course/program withdrawal Academic counselling is available to any nursing student who is having difficulty with course work, progress and selection. Professors and level co-ordinators should be consulted for each year of the program during the semester. Please check with nursing office for availability of professors and level coordinators. Students who have not been successful and need to change their progress through the plan of study should seek academic counselling to assist with correct and timely choices and protocol expectations. Students who wish to withdraw from the nursing program must be signed out of the program by the course professor and the co-ordinator of the year involved. Students may seek counselling with level coordinator for future course plan prior to withdrawing from any nursing courses. All withdrawal documents must be completed.

19 19 Course Credit for Courses Completed Prior to Admission 1. A student who wishes to transfer from another University's Faculty of Nursing to the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Windsor is required to submit an official transcript of records, description of courses taken and a statement of reason for transfer. This statement of reason is subject to verification. A minimum grade of B must have been obtained for a course to be considered. Transfers are not always possible due to differences in nursing program content. Transfers may also be declined when seats are not available. Course Drops/Withdrawal Students must inform the Faculty of their withdrawal. Students should take note of the Voluntary Withdrawal deadlines and penalties that may occur if proper procedures are not followed. See under important dates. Exam Absence or What to Do If You Are Sick For an Exam or Test (Refer to Resources for Current Students, then Policies, Bylaws, Notices, Guidelines, then Nursing Missed Examinations and Missed Assignment Policy. Formal Appeal When a student believes his/her final grade does not accurately represent his/her academic accomplishments, the following procedures shall be made available: 1. The student may formally appeal through the Registrar's Office for a fee. 2. The student is expected to submit a letter of rationale including relevant supporting documents (i.e., assignments, tests) at the time of application. 3. The appeal will be referred to the Associate Dean or designate(s) of the Faculty and he/she in consultation with the Academic Administrative Unit (AAU) Head or Dean of the School will instruct the professor responsible for assigning the final grade in dispute where possible, or an alternate where not possible, to review all assigned work for the purposes of re-evaluation. The Associate Dean or designate(s) shall also consult with a second faculty member with the appropriate expertise or Faculty of Nursing Appeals Committee. The student will be informed of the outcome, with reasons (if reasons for the appeal were submitted) in writing by the Registrar. The teacher will also receive information of the appeal outcome. During the course of the appeal procedure for a failing grade, a stay on all lower decisions affecting a student's standing in a program or eligibility to proceed with a course of study, will exist until a final decision has been reached. Appeals for an upgrade will have no effect on progress or eligibility to proceed. Specifically for Clinical - Students may continue in clinical rotations with awaiting appeal decisions. If the decision is unsuccessful and a passing grade is not granted, the student will be removed from clinical and will not be given credit from clinical time completed. Students must then VW out of the current clinical and relevant theory courses.

20 20 Specifically for Theory Students may continue in a theory course pending an appeal, but if unsuccessful must voluntarily withdraw from Nursing theory or clinical courses. Please note that the grade may stay the same, may be raised or may be lowered. Grade Appeal Process & Marks Sometimes, students are not in agreement with the final mark submitted for coursework. A process is in place for you to appeal the mark - subject to a processing fee. Not all appeals are successful in automatic grade enhancement. You are responsible for securing information about the appeal process through the Registrar s office. (www.uwindsor.ca/registrar) See Senate By-law 51 All appeals must be made in writing to the appropriate faculty through the Office of the Registrar (www.uwindsor.ca/registrar under Forms, grade appeal), no later than three weeks after the final mark has been released by the Registrar. It is suggested that an appeal of a failing grade in a clinical course be filed within 20 days after a course ends. Materials that are received after the deadline cannot be accepted. Grading Policy for Faculty of Nursing All course work will be marked and final grades submitted using the 100% scale. Mid-course grades will be reported to one decimal point; final grades will be rounded to whole numbers. Mathematical rules for rounding will apply. A minimum grade of 60% in each Nursing course is required. Group Project Grade Appeal by Group Member If a student is not satisfied with the group mark assigned to be shared by all participants, the individual may appeal the final grade using the Standard Appeal procedures including the rationale and documentation. The petitioner will be the only one influenced by the review outcome, whether upgraded or downgraded. All procedural protocols for other grade appeals apply. It is the responsibility of the collective group to ensure that all submissions comply with Academic Integrity requirements. Incomplete Grade Subject to regulations laid down by the Faculty or School, an "Incomplete" grade may be assigned to a student who so requests and at the discretion of the Instructor and Level Coordinator. Such a grade will be granted to a student who has not been able to complete all course requirements by the date of the final evaluations. The "Incomplete" grade could be used in situations such as: a) the missing of an examination or test for a valid reason; b) the failure to complete required projects or assignments in the allotted time owing to circumstances beyond the student's control. The average of a student who receives an "incomplete" grade will not be calculated until the final mark is assigned. An "Incomplete" grade must be changed to a letter grade or a Pass/No Pass not later than six weeks after the last date of the examination period.
