Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Nursing education administrators and faculty need evidence upon which to make curricular and programmatic decisions. That evidence is frequently available to administrators, but often in a form that makes it challenging to use. In this presentation, I will discuss the development and maintenance of a database that encompasses student grades, clinical placement information, and demographic information in electronic and linked file format, along with examples of how the database has been useful in decision making. The NEPS Database is a project jointly sponsored by the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan, Nursing Division of Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology, and Department of Health Sciences of the First Nations University of Canada. Because the Nursing Program of Saskatchewan is offered by the three partners on three sites, analysis of program data is difficult. Data contained in this database has been maintained on a secure server at the University of Saskatchewan, thus making all four years of data available for analysis. Analysis of this data has generated evidence to support various program decisions, including key areas of program attrition, effectiveness of special admission criteria and access programs, effects of student employment, correlates of student success, and impact of curricular changes.
