Program student learning outcomes (PSLOs)

The Program Student Learning Outcomes for the curriculum are based upon eight (8) key concepts of patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, informatics, professionalism, and leadership and are leveled for first year and second year students. The curriculum will demonstrate increased measurability through course assessments of unit and course student learning outcomes, role competencies, and program outcomes.

Upon completion of the Associate Degree Nursing Program, the graduate should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate that the practice of nursing is holistic, patient-centered, caring, culturally sensitive and based on the individual patient and designee preferences, and age appropriate in the provision of safe and effective care.
  2. Collaborate effectively with members of the Interprofessional health care team to promote continuity of quality patient care and achievement of optimal outcomes.
  3. Evaluate and use best current evidence, expert opinion, and clinical expertise as a basis for nursing practice and clinical judgment for delivery of optimal health care.
  4. Promote the development and implementation of quality improvement strategies to advance health care services.
  5. Provide a safe environment for patients, self, and others.
  6. Use informatics and patient care technology to communicate information, manage care, mitigate error and support clinical judgments when providing patient care.
  7. Practice nursing in a professional, ethical, and legal manner while providing standard-based nursing care.
  8. Integrate leadership and management skills when managing patient care.

The Final Course Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs):

The terminal course SLOs of the nursing curriculum are the SLOs in two of the three final nursing courses:

NURS 2243 Transition to Practice and NURS 2244 Nursing Care of Patients with Multisystem Disorders. Table 4.4.1 compares the eight key concepts, the SLOs and how successful completion of both courses leads to successful completion of the PSLOs and role specific competencies.
