3 Post-Master's Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (A-G ACNP) Certificate Assessment Plan A. Rationale The Post-Master's Certificate for advanced practice nursing in the area of acute care is for the student who has earned a Master's Degree in Nursing and would like to pursue this additional certification. A Graduate Council approved concentration already exists in this area for a MSN Degree. The difference between the concentration and the proposed professional certificate is that students in the Post-Master's Professional Certificate program have already earned a Master's Degree in Nursing. B. Mission This certificate aligns with the College Vision Statement which includes preparing nurses for leadership as clinicians who improve the health of individuals, families, and communities. It supports the University Mission which notes, Service reflects the university s obligation to share the benefits of its knowledge for the public good. Furthermore, the University services the nation s and state s critical needs, strengthens the human condition and improves quality of life. In keeping with the goals of The Florida Board of Governors Strategic Plan, this program address critical healthcare workforce needs for Florida. C. Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) Knowledge: 1. A graduate with a Post-Master's Certificate will demonstrate a comprehensive, in-depth knowledge base for lifelong learning and professional development. Skills: 2. A graduate with a Post-Master's Certificate will demonstrate clinical competence as an advanced practice nurse in the focus area of study. Professional Behavior: 3.

5 F. Methods and Procedures SLO #1: Graduates typically sit for the national certification examinations within 2 months of program completion. Results are received and analyzed by the College Academic Affairs Committee by June each year for previous calendar year graduates. (e.g. December 2012 graduates took the exam starting in January/February 2013 and results will be analyzed by June 2014.) The College Academic Affairs Committee recommends programmatic changes to the College faculty, as appropriate, for implementation starting in spring term of the following year. SLO #2 and SLO #3: Clinical course evaluation tools are used to evaluate student achievement of clinical competencies and competence in professional behavior. Results for each cohort are analyzed during the semester following program completion. Course faculty members consider changes in teaching methods, learning activities, and/or evaluation methods. Recommendations for improvements that require changes in course syllabi are made to the College Academic Affairs Committee and are approved by the College faculty prior to enrollment of the next student cohort.
