Students develop a personal and professional ethic consistent with the Franciscan values of learning, reverence and service. 4. Students demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility, diversity, and the standards of their professions/disciplines. 5. Students exhibit the professional development, work practices, global perspectives, and dispositions of lifelong learners. 6. Students integrate knowledge by engaging in meaningful graduate-level scholarly activities appropriate for their area of study. MSN Program Student Learning Outcomes 1.

5 Students Desiring to Complete a Thesis 1. The thesis is an option for any student in the Master of Science in Nursing Program. The student who wishes to write a thesis should anticipate that it will take at least one calendar year to complete. 2. A student who wishes to write a thesis should make his/her intentions known to the Director of the MSN Program as soon as possible in order to begin the process of selection of a thesis committee. 3. A Thesis committee will consist of a Thesis Chair who is a doctorally prepared member of the Lourdes University faculty and two other faculty members. At least one of the other members must be a full or part time member of Lourdes University Faculty. All faculty members must hold at least a masters degree. Either the committee chair or one other member of the committee must be either a full or part-time member of the faculty of the Lourdes University College of Nursing. 4. The student will meet with the faculty member whom he/she would like to have as a thesis chair. If the faculty member agrees to be the student s Thesis Chair the two of them can decide who to approach to be members of the thesis committee. 5. Once all members have agreed to work on the committee the student submits his or her request to the Director of the MSN program. 6. The Director of the MSN program must approve all theses committees. 7. If no faculty member is willing to be Thesis Chair then the student will need to opt to do a capstone project. IRB Approval 1. Even though a formal research project is not required for a capstone project; many projects may include activities that meet the federal definition of research which is cited below. A systematic investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge. Activities which meet this definition constitute research for purposes of this policy, whether or not they are conducted or supported under a program which is considered research for other purposes. For example, some demonstration and service programs may include research activities. (45CFR (b)) 2. Any project that involves the use of human subjects and meets the above definition must receive approval from the Lourdes University Institution Review Board (IRB) prior to the commencement of the project. If another agency is involved in the project, that Institutional Review Board must also approve the project. 3. It is up to the student to be knowledgeable of IRB regulations and timelines and plan his or her project accordingly. The student may get information about Lourdes University IRB on the University Website at 4. It is strongly recommended that the IRB application be submitted prior to the end of the semester prior to the capstone project to assure approval prior to beginning the capstone. Any delay in securing IRB approval could delay the student s graduation. All reports (including final report) must be submitted the semester in which the student will graduate. 5. Any student who needs IRB approval for his or her capstone and wishes to be assigned a capstone advisor early should submit her request to the MSN Program Director. 5

6 Public Presentation of Capstone Project 1. Every student is required to present his or her completed capstone project in a public forum that includes faculty and peers. 2. Public presentation of capstone projects will occur during the 14 th and 15 th week of the semester in which the capstone is completed. There also may be an opportunity to present during the University s Scholarship Symposium during the spring semester (competitive submissions). 3. The Capstone advisor decides whether or not a student is ready to present his or her project based on the status of the project during week 13 of the semester in which the capstone is being completed. 4. Failure to present the capstone project at a public forum will result in the student receiving a SP or UP for his or her project. 5. An incomplete capstone project falls under the policies and procedures of the Lourdes University Graduate School. Preparation of a Manuscript 1. Every student is required to present his or her completed capstone in the form of a manuscript worthy of publication in a professional journal. 2. The student and the Capstone advisor will determine the journal to which the manuscript will be submitted. 3. The format of the manuscript will depend on the guidelines set forth in the journal. 4. The capstone advisor determines if the manuscript is ready for submission by week 13 of the semester in which the capstone is being completed. 5. If the capstone advisor determines that the manuscript is not ready for submission the student may not publicly present his or her project and will receive an Incomplete for the semester. 6. An incomplete capstone project falls under the policies and procedures of the Lourdes University Graduate School. 7. Authorship credit for any published manuscript will be negotiated between the student and his or her capstone or thesis advisor. Please note: All of the above activities must be accomplished with timelines in mind. The student is responsible to submit all documents for review in a timely manner. In most instances graduate students must allow at least two weeks for faculty to review papers. Multiple drafts of the paper are expected. 6
