  • I would like to welcome everyone to the Northeast Regional Action Coalition Education Webinar. This is a follow-up to our the in-person Northeast Regional Education Meeting held in Princeton New Jersey this past May. Many of you are on the webinar from that meeting and hopefully some additional folks who are part of the Action Coalition education workgroups are on with us as well. Our goal here is to keep everyone updated, connected, and to continue the dialogue. Dr. Mary Sue Gorski, who many of you probably already know, is the Center to Champion Nursing in America’s Regional Education Coordinator. Mary Sue is leading our work on the education pillar and has been instrumental in facilitating the Campaign's Learning Collaborative on Advancing Education Transformation. Mary Sue coordinates the Regional Experts whom I am sure you have all met or will be meeting. She lead the planning and implementation of the four Regional Education Meetings as well as these follow-up regional webinars. So…Mary Sue I will turn it over to you.

  • • Learning from one another• Sharing best practices 23
  • • All states within the Northeast region have many activities occurring within their Action Coalitions• We are focusing on the education transformation work and the information that has been shared with us following the Northeast meeting and in recent updates 24

  • Northeast Perspective on theModels •Has both competency based and shared curriculum models within the state •CUNY is developing the competency based model in four of its community colleges with shared admission criteria and seamless progression to two senior colleges • St. Joseph‟s College and LeMoyne College have a dual degree, dual admission shared curriculum model • This model is now being replicated in other colleges in various regions of the state including two schools within the CUNY system •State work is an excellent example of how different approaches can be used within a state and even within a system to reach the 80/20 goal 26
  • • Focused on developing a plan for a competency based curriculum• In discussion with PA Coalition for the Advancement of Nursing Education (PCANE) and AC Steering Committee to determine if there is consensus on this model• Issued a “white paper” in June of 2012 which involved extensive data collection from students and multiple constituencies about barriers to advancement, institutional support for advancement and education capacity• Well on their way with RN to MSN accelerated model• Thinking about competency based model 27

  • • Developed competency based model through an RWJF PIN grant• All five nursing programs have completed gap analysis on all competencies• Developed one bridge course to be taught in all nursing programs• Established Charter school for nursing for academic progression starting in high school• Exploring opportunities to develop accelerated model for ADN to MSN 30
  • • Working on a competency based model• Three partnerships of ADN and BSN programs and their practice partners did Gap Analysis of curriculum and orientation programs• Two seamless progression models• Two new BSN programs (Plymouth and Keene State colleges) used competency model to develop curriculum• Next steps - increase education level of incumbent workforce ADN to BSN and accelerated models 31
  • •Working on the competency based model for over ayear•Beginning exploration of common/shared curriculum model•Action Coalition focused on developing amarketing/communication plan to engage additionallocal funders in education transformation work•Has two competency based curriculum models atNorwich University and Castleton State College•The University of Vermont is focusing on moving theRN to MSN program to a RN to DNP model 32

  • Agreement on Competencies Diploma, ADN,Implementation of BSN Nursing Seamless Progression Programs &Curriculum Models Practice Partners Designing Gap Analysis New Models Process of by Addressing Curricula the Gaps 37
  • Agreement on Competencies•Engage school administration in plan for curriculum redesignearly on in the process•Can select from various competencies •Develop your own •QSEN • Nurse of the Future•Align all with AACN Essentials for Baccalaureate Education andNLN AC Competencies 38
  • Competency Model Process Partnerships of Diploma, AD, BS Nursing Programs & Practice Partners •Practice partners bring insight into current healthcare environment and clinical learning opportunities •May begin with “coalition of the willing” 39
  • Competency Model Process Gap Analysis Process •Technique for determining the steps to be taken in moving from a current state to a desired future state. •It begins with the present situation (“what is”), cross-lists factors required to achieve the future objectives (“what could be”), and then highlights the „gaps that exist and need to be filled‟. • Diploma, AD and BS programs assess curriculum against competencies •Must demonstrate evidence of the competency in curriculum or clinical experiences •Practice partners may examine orientation programs 40
  • Gap Analysis Process Sample Competencies1. Assessment of Current Status How many opportunities are currently available for your students to learn the K/A/S by graduation?2. Validation of Current Status Where are these learning opportunities in your curriculum and how are they taught? Can include course objectives, lecture content , clinical objectives, clinical experiences, written assignments , case studies or other documented evidence and how evaluated3. Desired Outcomes Nursing Program How many opportunities do you (the faculty) believe should be available for your students to learn the K/A/S by graduation4. Desired Outcomes Practice Partner(s) How many opportunities does your practice partner believe should be available for your students to learn the K/A/S by graduation?5. GAP Between Desired Outcomes and CurrentStatus6. GAP Between Practice Partners DesiredOutcomes and Nursing Program DesiredOutcomes
  • Designing New Models by Addressing the Gaps•May be designed at undergraduate level or within RN to BSNprograms•May involve dual or co-admission•May involve assessment and/or alignment of prerequisites,general education requirements and credit transfer issueswhich will necessitate involvement of school administration 42
  • Implementation of Seamless Progression Curriculum Models•Competency based models provide seamless progression models•Competency based models can also serve as foundation forshared or common curriculum models•Some models based on 1 plus 2 plus 1 approach•Some states have begun with a cohort approach that can beexpanded within a system or across the state or region 43
  • Agreement on CompetenciesImplementation of Diploma, ADN, Seamless BSN Nursing Progression Programs &Curriculum Models Practice Partners Designing Gap Analysis New Models Process of by Addressing Curricula the Gaps 44
  • • This process addresses the fact that education and practice do not always speak the same language• Practice needs be involved early in the review and development of new curriculum models• Diploma, AD and BS programs all have gaps in reviewing current competency models• Divergence and convergence are part of the process• Iterative process of innovation 45
