Program Assessment

Student DebriefingThe UNCW School of Nursing developed a continuous and systematic plan for Program Evaluation using the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Education Programs. The Evaluation Plan is being implemented and the data retrieved, aggregated, analyzed, trended, and utilized to strengthen the UNCW SON academic programs. The data analysis and program changes are recorded in the Implementation document on an annual basis. The Program Evaluation Committee (PEC) performs ongoing program evaluation and development by collecting and analyzing data related to student learning outcomes and program outcomes. Nursing Program educational effectiveness is also evaluated by student achievement related to: graduation rates, licensure/certification pass rates; job placement rates; and program satisfaction defined as graduate, alumni, and employer program satisfaction. Relevant data collected by the Director, School of Nursing that reflect CCNE Standards I, Mission and Governance, and I, Program Quality: Institutional Commitment and Resources, will also be incorporated into a plan of action by the PEC.

At the end of each semester, the PEC distributes to faculty appropriate documents for course level evaluation. These data will be collected and analyzed using selected statistical processes appropriate to measure the anticipated outcomes and relationships. The PEC will meet with respective Council Coordinators, Administrators and faculty to identify trends derived from the data. Confidential information (IDEA scores) will be provided by the Director in aggregate form to augment existing analysis.
