NURS 4BR Advanced Nursing NURS NURS NURS 4CR NURS 4CR Nursing Trends STRENGTHS AND CHALLENGES NURSING Associated Degree Nursing and Vocational Nursing Strengths or accomplishments The Nursing Division has implemented a new curriculum this fall The format has moved from one course combining theory skills lab and clinical to 3 separate courses The curriculum has moved fro a Medical Model Systems approach to a curriculum based on blended nursing theory and supported by the nursing process Transition from the old curriculum to the new has been smooth students report that the format is less intimidating In addition students will spend their clinical rotations at one facility each semester instead of switching facilities every 3 weeks The Vocational Nursing Program has been separated from the Associate Degree Nursing program and fulltime tenure track facility assigned to the program Although enrollments in this program are not impacted students report great satisfactions with the program Students in both the ADN and Vocational Nursing programs have varied patient contact in multiple departments encompassing age ranges from birth until death during clinical rotations Generic ADN and Vocational Nursing students perform well on National Council ofState Boards of Nursing NCLEX exams Faculty and students have incorporated Increased use of technology in classroom skills lab and clinical rotations All nursing students utilize computer charting in the hospital and the department has purchased patient care manikins with computer capability for assessment ofbreath cardiac and bowel sounds All students are capable ofsending email and searching the Internet through home or learning center computers Information competency has become imbedded in each nursing course Most students are able to produce power point presentation by end of 1 semester Several instructors have created lecture and or class outlines in power point or equivalent formats and placed them on their web pages for student use Faculty members are moving to posting syllabus assignments and lecture notes on Faculty Web Pages Growth Trends Growth in the number ofstudents enrolled in both the ADN and VN program has occurred due to two additional nursing faculty one as a result ofthe Chancellor s Of ce Enrollment Growth Grant and one additional district position In addition the District has been awarded two Workforce Investment Board grant to train Vocational Nurses Currently the Division is involved in writing a collaborative Title V grant with San Diego State to develop and implement a collaborative RN to BSN program if successful it is anticipated that enrollment in the program will increase Additional sections at the Associate Degree and Advance Placement Level could be added to the program utilizing evening and weekend delivery modalities A discussion with the Welcome Back program a program targeted at internationally trained health care workers to secure funds for an accelerated MD to RN program for international physicians has begun Relationship with Community andor Other Programs Hospitals and other industry partners has had a positive and productive partnership with lVC since the inception ofthe programs this partnership has continued to expand as the health care needs of Valley change Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District and El Centro Regional Medical Center are currently members with Imperial Valley College in a Partnership Agreement that provides faculty and or collaborative grants projects Structures within the community such as lVCHO exist that could be expanded to increase clinical sites or other partners The 2003 Focus groups conducted around the Imperial Valley indicated the public is supportive ofthe nursing program lVC has a close working relationship with Imperial County ROP and is currently in the second year ofa collaborative grant for nursing students project ACHIEVE The Workforce Investment Board has provided grant money forVocational Nursing training Internally the student support services has a designated counselor for nursing and allied health The Division has worked closely with the Math and Science Division on science course prerequisites Faculty staffand students participate on a regular basis in Jr Hi and High School Career Days for the purpose of recruiting students into our programs Weaknesses or Challenges 0 The Advance Placement LVN to RN students have preformed below expectations on National Council of Nursing Licensure Exams NCLEX This trend has lowered the overall annual pass rate ofprogram graduates Faculty has reviewed the problem and strategies put into place to attempt to improve success on the exam and local health care industries partners have agreed to work on a solution In addition the college s education consultant at the Board of nursing has been involved in helping the faculty to correct some deficiencies into the program However it is the conclusion ofthe faculty and advisory committee that a curriculum revision of the Advanced Placement program is needed to improve student outcomes Increases in Nursing Courses this semester has ovenvhelmed skill lab space and classrooms that must be shared with Allied Health and EMS courses 0 The Division lacks a computer lab technician for the Nursing Learning Centers 27 station computer lab This leads to delays in use ofcomputers that need repair and promotes abuse of computers by students 0 The Nursing Learning Center is staffed with persession faculty which on occasion leads to a lack of continuity in learning processes and services offered The faculty has long held that this should be a fulltime position that includes coordination s ofskills lab activities 0 Nursing and allied health has one ofthe most severe amp sustained shortages in recent history the college simply does not have the capacity to meet the industry needs 0 The majority of our nursing faculty is 50 years ofage or older replacement of experience nursing faculty may be a looming challenge in the next 5 10 years This may be overcome by moving to a distance education model for some classes that would allow faculty to teach our students from another location 0 Baby Boomers are entering the age where added healthcare attention is needed this trend is expected to increase the need for nurses in expanded roles The college will not be able to keep up with this demand unless careful expansion ofthe program occurs 0 ESL Student often struggles with the demand for technical reading and clinical communications skill experiences required in nursing programs Currently the nursing program has a very limited number offluent bilingual educators which may have an impact on student success 0 There has been a certain level of confusion or blending ofexpectations between the RN and LVN scope of practice that adversely effects student expectations The splitting ofthe programs into separate courses should help to correct this problem Distance Education o It is unclear at the time ofthis program review if lVC has the necessary infrastructure to support a robust Distance Education program at NC Nursing Program Academic Quali cations Strengths or accomplishments o The program has paired seasoned and master s prepared instructors in nearly every semester with any newer instructor AII faculty are Registered Nurses with the majority holding Master ofScience in Nursing Degrees or Post Master Certificates All fauclty working within the programs are approved by the Board of Registered Nursing and Board ofVocationaI Nursing and Psychiatric Nurse Examiners in one of3 categories Instructor MSN required Assistant Instructor BSN required or Teaching Assistant RN with 5 years ofbedside nursing experience All faculty must complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years to remain licensed Content Expert faculty as de ned by the California Board of Nursing must demonstrate competency and 40 hours of continuing education in the field of expertise every 5 years Currently on the faculty are two practicing Nurse Practitioners and a third faculty member is completing course work at USD as a Family Nursing Practitioners Weaknesses or challenges 0 Instructor mix the program has the advantage of several faculty with more that 20 years of experience however we have a limited number of new instructors This may lead to challenges as faculty transition into retirement resulting in a lack of mentors for newer faculty The division has had dif culty attracting Per Session faculty due to inability to meet industry pay standards and the lack ofadvance practice nurses in the Imperial Valley Allied Health Medical Assistant Strengths The MA program receives great support form Imperial Valley Physicians AII PerSession instructors are currently working in eld and hold Medical Assistant Certi cation Program completers have a high rate ofemployment in Physicians and Clinics Program completers are now taking and passing state certi cation exams Growth Trends 0 There is a shortage of Medical Assistant in the Valley The program has the potential for growth Relationships with community andor other programs All students enrolled in the Medical Assistant Program complete internships programs in local physician and clinics throughout the program The Physicians Medical Of ce Staff and Clinics are supportive ofthe program and open up their practice for students to complete internships Challenges The program is staffed by adjunct faculty only and is offered as a parttime program This approach lengthens the program and will prevent us from expanding course offerings We have been unable to meet industry needs as the Valley grows this problem will continue to worsen Degrees and special academic qualifications of staff All faculty teaching in the Medical Assistant Program meets State and District requirements All faculties maintain current in practice by working is the area for which they teach and attend state sponsored workshops on Medical Assisting Health Assistant Home Health Aid Strengths 0 Program completers perform well on state certifying exams o The program is well respected by health care community 0 IVC faculty far exceeds state DHS requirements 0 Many programs completer s transition into career ladder program Vocational Nursing andorAssociate Degree Nursing programs The program utilizes the Chancellor s Office NATAP program and beginning Fall 2005 will implement a revised syllabus based on the new state guidelines Growth Trends Health care industry predictions forecast an increased need for certi ed nurse assistants and home health aids as the population of baby boomers age Currently IVC offers one health assistant program each semester with plans to begin offering a course this summer Relationship with community andor other programs The LongTerm care community training takes place in longterm care facilities have been very supportive of these programs The certificate ceremony for the Health Assistants has been hosted by Royal Convalescent Hospital for the past 3 years Challenges o It is very dif cult to nd faculty that meet the Department of Health Services and IVC requirements to teach a health assistant program Faculty must have at least one year of recent experience in bedside nursing in an acute care facility IVC requires a Masters Degree The state only certifies based on the longterm care experience Ofour entire Nursing faculty including our Nurse Practitioners only that faculty that were grand fathered into the process are approved to teach this class The State has reversed approval ofsome previously approved faculty in the last year Therefore it is a major challenge to find a RN with one year of paid work experience in longterm care 0 The state requires that nurse assistant training be conducted in longterm care however in the Imperial County only one facility is available for training We are unable to utilize the second facility due to industry violations Degrees and special academic qualifications of staff 0 Approved Faculty hold advanced degrees or hold administrative andor bedside nursing experiences in longterm care Pharmacy Technician 0 This is a dormant program It has not been offered in several years We are in the process of inviting industry partners to determine the need for this course and ifso will help revise the curriculum Paramedic Strengths The Paramedic Program is accredited by the Accreditation by Commission on Accreditation ofAllied Health Education Programs CAAHEP The program utilizes evaluation tools consistent with national guidelines The curriculum updated on an ongoing basis to reflect current knowledge technology scope ofpractice amp to meet the needs ofthe communities of interest Growth Trends Over the past 5 years there has been a steady increase in demand for the paramedic program The program received 99 applications for the 20 available slots in the program As the Valley expands it is anticipated that the demand for Emergency Medical Workers including paramedics will increase Relationship with community andor other programs 0 The Paramedic program enjoys excellent relationships and support from community EMS agencies 0 Gold Cross Ambulance Service amp Calexico Fire Department to provide internship preceptors for program Local acute care facilities provide clinical experience in Emergency Department surgery and other related departments for inpatient clinical experience Graduates ofthis program are sought by all advanced life support agencies when openings exist 0 The program director is a member of community EMS committees O O The EMS Advisory Committee assists with program review and accreditation selfstudies The Program Medical Director a licensed Emergency Physician meets California Code of Regulations Title 22 quali cations and is responsible for all medical aspects ofthe program in addition to 0 Review amp approve the educational content ofthe program curriculum 0 Review amp approve the quality of medical instruction supervision amp evaluation of the students Review amp approve the progress of each student throughout the program Assure amp attest to the competence of each graduate of the program 0 Cooperative involvement with the program director The local Imperial County EMS Office amp EMS Medical Director approve all ofthe above positions in accordance with Calif Title 22 00 Challenges Skills Laboratory space is limited amp classroom desks are too small for the students The classrooms are not lnternet ready which makes it dif culty to link up to national EMS educational programs Scheduling inpatient clinical experience continues to be a challenge due to the short duration ofthe experience and that multiple disciplines amp increased students utilize these facilities The program needs new equipment and a plan for replacement of aging equipment Currently the EMS program must share spacefacilitiesequipment with other health care programs NC is simply running out ofspace to expand these courses The EMS programs need space to expand in order to meet community needs which include but are not limited to 0 Advanced Life Support courses such as ACLSPALS PHTLS etc 0 Development of Paramedic to RN program 0 Weapons of Mass DestructionTerrorism training 0 Increase Continuing Education training Degrees and Special Academic Qualifications of Staff Program Directorlead lnstructor meets District County State and National Qualifications PerSession Instructors meet California Code of Regulations Title 22 qualifications Emergency Medical Technician Strengths o This course is of value to all emergency service personnel including ambulance personnel law enforcement re services BLMrangers border patrol and other rescue personnel Prepares the students for an entrylevel position in the health care and allied health professions This is the most popular EMS course offered in the Division Courses are offered both day and evening and both have large wait list and crashers each semester All of the Border Patrol BORSTAR teams are graduates of our EMT program which is contract with the Federal Government Challenges We have been unable to accommodate all students who wish to take the course This is a course that relies heavily on Professional Experts and has had dif culty with new interpretation of that category in moving some of these experts to per session status The challenge is to nd individuals who meet community college and EMS education in the valley Growth trends 0 The EMT student enrollment has doubled in the past ve years 0 Curriculum needs to be developed curricula for an Emergency Department Technician Course to meet growing demands in hospital Emergency Departments Placement o The students upon completion of the program work in the capacity of emergency personnel or government agency careers Some graduates continue on in other health care related elds including entering the Nursing Program at IVC In addition course completers work in a variety of related elds such as re ghters CHP Border Patrol BLMRangers law enforcement emergency room and other government career Distance Education 0 The nature of the course would make it dif cult to teach in a distance education format at this time 39 quot 39 39 to local quot andor other nroorams o The course prepares the student for entrylevel careers in the community 0 This course is a link to the area agencies in our community 0 The Imperial County EMS Authority provides oversight of the course Academic reg uirements 0 Fulltime and PerSession faculty meet EMTEMS and College requirements 0 Faculty work in EMSrelated occupations and are current on county state and federal requirements and or standards Fire Science Strengths 0 After years of being a edgling program the college and the county are in the final stages of developing a MOU that would allow a partnership to offer a fire academy beginning spring 2005 This is an in demand program that has the potential for major growth All faculty are industry leaders Fire Captains or have several years of fire fighting experience Growth Trends 0 A re Academy will be started in the next year 0 This program has a potential for major growth Relationship with community andor other programs 0 The Fire Academy will be a joint venture between IVC and the Imperial County 0 This program is administered by the Fire Departments within the Imperial County 0 The Fire Chief Association has been given oversight of the program and this group is actually revising our curriculum to meet State Fire Marshal standards Challenges 0 Lack of a fulltime Fire Science instructorcoordinator will make it very difficult to meet the community needs for this program The joint agreement for the Fire Academy is a new endeavor for the college the program will utilize County and City Fire equipment supplies and staff The college will pay teaching staff it will be a challenge to fit Fire Academy Faculty requirement with IVC requirements 3 STUDENT DEMOGRAPHICS DivisionProgram Demographic Information NURSING Associate Degree Nursing There are two majority groups 2024 year olds comprise the largest group 421 and 3049 year olds are the second largest group 359 These age groups correlate with anecdotal observations of first career seekers and those seeking a career change or second career The prerequisites required of nursing make it difficult for the 20year old and under group to enroll The rigors of nursing may also account for the small group of students over 50 05 enrolled The majority of students enrolled are female 847 however the college enrolls more men 153 than the national average

Nursing program for Fall 2004 shows an 898 retention at census 937 retention rate at the end of the Term and a 928 success rate This is signi cantly higher than the ICV average of 723 retention rate at census 829 retention rate at the end and a success rate of 706 This may be the result of multiple variables most notably the selection process for this program close monitoring of students quick remediation of students at risk and motivation of students to succeed However the program has decided to conduct an analysis on grade distribution against student performance on the ATI exams administered throughout the program and on the NCLEXRN exam taken after graduation to assure that students are earning actual grades in other words to assure that grade in ation does not exist Nursing

EMS The grade distribution for EMT and Paramedic courses are combined in the following chart however the EMT 105 course is open enrollment and the Paramedic Program is an application only program This difference in the student populations accounts for the larger percentage of W grades in the EMT 105 course and lower retention levels Paramedic students are selected from a large application pool and are currently working or eligible to work as either EMT s Firefighter EMT s or BOARSTAR agents This prior experience helps to assure students complete the course with a C or higher However it must be

OUTCOMES The Academic Senate has taken the lead in developing the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes The Institutional Student Learning Outcomes categories as de ned by the Academic Senate are Communication Global Awareness Critical Thinking Information Literacy Skills Personal Responsibility Each of the programs Within the Nursing Education and Health Technology Division has established outcome goals and or competencies These outcomes are accessed annually and nding reported in accreditation studies for that program Program goals must be measurable and faculty within each program has established Rubrics to measure these goals A sample of one programs outcomes goal are the outcome goals for the Associate Degree in Nursing Program Student Outcomes are l N E 4 V39 0 gt1 Formulates a nursing diagnosis through observation of the client s physical condition and behavior and through interpretation of information obtained from the client and others including the health team Formulates a care plan in collaboration with the individual client with respect for cultural beliefs which ensures that direct and indirect nursing care services provide for the client s safety comfort hygiene and protection and for disease prevention and restorative measures Evaluates the effectiveness of the care plan through observation of the client s physical condition and behavior signs and symptoms of illness and reactions to treatment and through communication with the client and the health team member and modifies the plan as needed Performs skills essential to the kind of nursing action to be taken explains the health treatment to the client and family and teaches the client and family how to care for the client s health needs Practices effective leadership and management skills including the delegation of task to subordinates based on the legal scopes of practice of the subordinates and on the preparation and capability needed in the tasks to be delegated and effectively supervises nursing care being given by subordinates Acts as the client s advocate as circumstances require by initiating action to improve health care or to change decisions or activities which are against the interests or wishes of the client and by giving the client the opportunity to make informed decisions about health care before it is provided Foster communication and collaborative relationships with clients and with other professionals disciplines and community organizations in promoting healthcare access and maintenance 8 Practices as a conscientious professional who practices within the legal and ethical parameters of professional nursing and demonstrates a commitment to lifelong learning as a part of the professional role As the Academic Senate refines the Student Learning Outcomes the programs within the division will weave those outcomes into program outcomes 7 STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES Library resources are adequate for nursing students The Library has an extensive collection of periodicals related to nursing and health care In addition the Library is a member of EBSCOhost Web which allows students access to books reference material and journal articles located at any of the member Libraries The Library is automated and students may research books journal articles etc online The library also houses a tutoring center and study area Students utilize the library services on a regular basis The Counseling Department has assigned two counselors to the Nursing Division These counselors attend division and advisory meetings They have become integral members of our team In addition the student services offer programs such as EOPS which supports many nursing students prior to entering nursing classes and while they are completing the programs within the division In addition students have access to several scholarship programs offered to students through private and public funds Tutoring and remediation are available to our students in two significant areas The main tutoring service for students is in the division through the Nursing Learning Center The division employees are two parttime RN and VN Board approved nursing faculty who serve as instructortutors in the center In addition the Computer Lab Assistant operates out of the Nursing Leaming Center The Nursing Leaming Center houses textbooks reference material audiovisual materials and numerous software programs The computer lab houses 24 computers all of which have word processing and Internet capabilities In addition students have access to tutors in the Library Tutoring Center There are three skills laboratories for student learning The labs are fully equipped and simulate hospital rooms One lab is equipped with four beds the second with three beds and the third with two beds and an exam table The program has a variety of medial mannequins including one with computerized capability Instructional clinical supplies are kept current and re ect the materials being used in healthcare particular emphasis has been taken to match our supplies with those used in the two acute care hospitals in which our students have clinical experience The Division of Nursing Education and Health Technologies have been fortunate to acquire the needed equipment to operate a qualitynursing program However the equipment is beginning to show signs of age The computer lab has computers adequate for existing software but lacks DVD quality which will be required with the next generation of software In addition the college will need to adopt a plan to replace outdated computers One classroom is equipped with Internet access and computervideo projection units The other classrooms utilize portable computervideo projectors from either the Nursing Division of the college s audiovisual department Through community donations grants and college general funds the Nursing Division has been able to meet most equipment needs Through grant funds the college was able to significantly upgrade the software holding in the computer lab for advance nursing subjects In addition medical and nursing web sites have been earmarked The hospitals have made available to the college all of their satellite educational programs for faculty and students Challenges 00 The department is without a computer lab technician for its computer lab The division has had to rely on IS staff which leads to down time for students It is an ineffective way to run a lab Computer lab hours need to be extended to include evening hours to accommodate student needs The NLC is staffed with nursing faculty but as Emergency Medical Services courses grow the need to add an EMS tutor has been noted The computers in the NLC computer lab and classroom portable computers need to be updated to DVD quality and expanded memory to accommodate the new generation of health care software and simulations Videos for EMS Allied Health and certain subjects in nursing which were not updated through grant monies are very old and need to be updated NCLEX software needs to be updated to meet 2005 test plan items The equipment in the skills lab is several years old and is beginning to show signs of age with some body parts missing The new generation training manikins are equipped with computer animation to more accurately simulate patient care The department needs to transition to these manikins This will require upgrading the staffing in the lab or unitizing a microcomputer lab assistant to run these labs ACADEMIC STANDARDS What procedures are being used to assure that academic standards are maintained and that current curriculum is adequately meeting the needs of the students If an applied science area discuss advisory committee input How is the program reviewed for recency and methodology How are prerequisites and co requisites reviewed and updated All programs in the Nursing Division are monitored by both internal and external agencies These programs are highly regulated and faculty teaching in each of these programs must be approved by that agency prior to conducting classes The following programs reporting requirements are outlined below 0 The Board of Registered Nursing accredits the Associate of Science in Nursing RN Program An accreditation self study and onsite visit was conducted in Fall 2003 o The Board of Vocational Nursing accredits the Vocational Nursing Program and Psychiatric Technicians and we submitted a program record selfstudy in Fall 2002 o The Health Assistant and Home Health Aide Programs are approved by the California Department of Health Services and submit curriculum documentation biannually The last approval from DHS was granted in Fall 2003 o The Medical Assistant Program curriculum meets the regulations as defined by the California Medical Board 0 The Emergency Medical Technician Program is overseen by the Imperial County EMS authority and meets State of California Title 22 regulations The Imperial County EMS authority and Medical Director reviews curriculum annually 0 The Paramedic Program is nationally accredited by the National Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs has oversight by the Imperial County EMS authority and meets State of California Title 22 regulations The Paramedic Program will have submitted a selfstudy in January 2005 and an accreditation visit is scheduled for Spring 2005 o The Fire Technology Program and Fire Academy are in the process of revision to meet State of California Fire Marshal Standards The RN and VN programs were separated effective Fall 2004 The Associate Degree Nursing Curriculum has undergone a major curriculum revision with implementation beginning Fall 2004 Full implementation will be completed Spring 2006 The EMT Paramedic Fire Technology and the LVN to RN Bridge Program all plan to undergo either minor or major curriculum revisions during the next four years to align curriculum with current academic and industry standards All health care programs with the exception of the Medical Assistant and Fire Technology programs must submit annual reports to the accrediting or approving agency These programs monitor student outcomes for example if the State Boards NCLEX pass rate for either RN or VN students falls below state thresholds the program must submit a plan of correction All curriculum changes both minor and major must be submitted to these agencies for approval prior to implementation Within the majority of programs in the division accreditation board requires that faculty members be designated as content experts These content experts are required to have demonstrated specialty experience that is updated on a regular basis Each content expert must review the curriculum content so that content re ects health care standards In addition content experts are required to review course exams to ensure that they align with national exams 0 Content Experts in Nursing Education and Health Technologies are 0 MedicalSurgical Al
