AAS Assessment

The associate degree nursing programs use a systematic plan of evaluation to evaluate and improve upon program outcomes. The standards used to evaluate the program include ACEN criteria, which includes the following standards:

  1. Mission and Administrative Capacity,
  2. Faculty and Staff,
  3. Students,
  4. Curriculum,
  5. Resources, and
  6. Outcomes.

Program assessment is ongoing with formative course assessment each semester and summative program assessment annually. The associate degree nursing program faculty participates in the development of levels of achievement for each standard, assessment methods, collection and analysis of data, as well as development and implementation of action plans.
