Seton Hall University’s College of Nursing has been nationally recognized as a winner of the inaugural Assessment and Impact Awards for Nursing Education by Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillan Learning company that provides research-based program assessments and benchmarking for a variety of programs.
Dean Marie C. Foley, PhD, RN, accepted the award on the college’s behalf at the 2019 American Association of College of Nursing (AACN) Academic Nursing Leadership Conference.
Dean Foley tells shu.edu, “Our undergraduate faculty, led by Dr. Judith Lucas, our associate dean of undergraduate programs and assessment, are dedicated to improving our curricula and, likewise, student retention and outcomes based on relevant data. Skyfactor contributes to our success in making appropriate data-driven changes.”
The Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing was created to highlight schools of nursing that are successfully using data to improve their programs, which in turn helps to retain students and develop more practice-ready nursing professionals. Benchworks selected the winners by analyzing multi-year assessment data that identified programs that had the best results or increases in performance in areas like course interactions and quality of instruction, as well as through interviewing nursing program administrators. Seton Hall was selected for its leadership in contemporary healthcare education and blending scholarship with excellence in nursing practice.
