Outcomes Assessment

Outcomes assessment is used throughout the educational process at Avila to evaluate program effectiveness. The program of nursing, university, and/or accrediting agencies determines assessed outcomes.

Assessment activities occur throughout, at the end of the nursing curriculum and post-graduation. Assessment early in the nursing curriculum can provide the faculty a baseline from which to evaluate curricular impact on outcomes. Assessment activities may also include course assignments or surveys. Post-graduation outcome assessments help to evaluate such things as graduate and employer satisfaction and success on the nursing licensure examination. The nursing program curriculum outcomes are:

  1. Select and use effective and facilitative communication techniques to deliver evidence-based patient- centered care with emphasis on patient safety and positive professional working relationships.

  2. Perform professional role competencies with an emphasis on the roles of provider of care, designer/manager/coordinator of care and member of the interprofessional team.

  3. Integrate clinical reasoning and evidence-based decision making to deliver patient-centered care in a changing practice environment.

  4. Demonstrate personal knowing, spirituality and cultural humility in socially and globally responsible health care
