    The University of Scranton’s Department of Nursing was among two programs in the country presented with a 2020 Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing Education. The award recognizes colleges that have successfully used data to analyze and make changes to better their undergraduate nursing programs. It is presented annually by Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillan Learning Company, which produce the most widely used assessments in nursing education.

    Scranton’s nursing program was recognized for “high performance in satisfaction with instruction,” demonstrating how a nursing education program “can improve the student experience and support their accreditation efforts through strategically using data.” An analysis of the program’s data highlighted the value of faculty efforts to build strong relationships with students as well as the impact of instructional changes that increased hands-on experiences in their curriculum.

    The 2020 winners were chosen through a careful analysis of multiple years of data from the AACN/Benchworks Undergraduate Nursing Exit Assessment. The Skyfactor Benchworks Analytics and Research Team first conducted a quantitative analysis and review of applications, followed by interviews with finalists to learn about improvements in their nursing programs. Those applications and interview notes were then blind reviewed and evaluated on a rubric by an external panel of experts in the nursing education profession. 

    The University’s nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
