Student Outcome Assessment Plans & Reports

The Mission of the Department of Nursing is to offer quality nursing education to undergraduate and graduate nursing students.  In order to insure that we meet this mission, the Department of Nursing conducts a continuous assessment of the nursing programs and of student learning.
