The purpose of this presentation is to describe the process of selecting, modifying and implementing a business model for strategic planning tied to evaluation in nursing education. While reviewing the current evaluation process, Loma Linda University School of Nursing (LLUSN) identified the need to revise its current evaluation plan. Criteria for the search included a model that: 1) is theory driven, 2) fits with the "culture of evidence" 3) is compatible with LLUSN's wholeness mission and global responsibility, and 4) includes financial outcomes. Using these criteria, the newly developed Strategic Planning & Evaluation Committee reviewed 1) Chen's model based on Stufflebeam's Evaluation Model, 2) O'Neil's Academic Scorecards adapted from a business model, 3) Welsh's Global Model for Program Evaluation. O'Neil's Academic Scorecard model was selected. The model addresses four questions: 1) How do customers see us? 2) What must we excel at? 3) How can we continue to improve and create value? and 4) How do we look to shareholders? The committee was drawn to the model's simplicity, comprehensiveness, and proactive approach to strategic planning. Development of the scorecard began with identifying major stakeholder perspectives: Students, alumni, and employers; University leadership; Christian and Professional service; and Innovation for excellence in teaching and learning. This was followed by envisioning goals from each "perspective". Next, valid, reliable tools were sought to measure achievement of goals. A draft of the model was e-mailed to faculty for reflection and input prior to discussion during faculty meetings. This process resulted in a faculty vote to adopt the model. Outcomes from this process include: 1) opportunity for shared governance in strategic planning, 2) visionary approach to evaluation at a health science university, 3) identification of needed tools for evaluation, and 4) specification of benchmarks for attainment of goals plus resetting the bar for growth and improvement.
