*B 232 Introduction to the Profession (B 253 in curriculum beginning fall 2016) is the first nursing course in which pre-licensure track students enroll. On time completion is defined as graduating within 36 months from successful completion of this course. For the R.N. to B.S.N. track, B 331 Transition to Baccalaureate Nursing Practice is the first nursing course in which R.N. to B.S.N. students enroll. If all general education courses are completed before enrolling in this course, on time graduation is defined as within 12 months for the hybrid R.N. to B.S.N. option. For the online option, on time completion is defined as graduating within 24 months.

M.S.N. Student Success

Term/Year of Graduation Term/Year of Admission Number of Students Admitted Number of Students Graduated + Percentage of Students Graduated On Time Percentage of Graduates Employed ++
December 2015 January 2014 13 10 77% 100%
December 2014 January 2013 9 9 100% 78%

+ Based on the entry point and time period to completion as defined by the program. Identify here how you determined the “start of the program.” The IU Kokomo M.S.N. program defines "start of program" as enrolled in classes for their chosen track starting the second semester. We have several students in semester one who enroll in M.S.N. statistics and theory to prepare for an NP program. As a result, it is more accurate to determine "start of program" as the second semester of the program.

++ Provide employment rate within 12 months of program completion.

Program Evaluation

The Indiana University School of Nursing Evaluation Methodology for the Pre-licensure B.S.N. Track, R.N. to B.S.N. Track, and the M.S.N. Program We are currently using Chen's Evaluation Theory as a guide to our design and implementation of program evaluation. Using program evaluation theory allows for rich, valuable data to be analyzed and interpreted in order to improve our nursing programs.
