History of the PN Collaborative Curriculum
Project is found in Essentials Book –
Chapter 1
PN Curricular Project

• National Accreditation
• 16/23 programs were over 40 credits
• Many between 50 and 60 credits
• Time…Money…Resources
Summer 2012 - MnSCU Funded $100,000 through
HealthForce MN for the PN Curricular Project
• 1.
Developed a Statewide Curricular Committee
• 2 faculty per campus
• Plus industry partners
• 2. Regional
Curriculum Committee
• One faculty representative from each region in Minnesota
PN Collaborative work began at the August
2012 Workshop with Linda Caputi

• Chose ATI Curricular Mapping Program to Map the Curriculum
Mapped Curriculum
• Student Learning Outcomes
• NCLEX Test Plan
• NLN Model
• ACEN (NLNAC) Reports
• Problems with Changes….
• Syllabi…
Examples of ACEN comments from
Candidacy, Site Visit Reports, etc.
• Course objectives are measureable but do not clearly connect to
the SLO’s.
• The program needs to clearly demonstrate the progression
of the student learning outcomes across the curriculum.
• The programs have identified the course objectives as
cognitive, affective or psychomotor. However, neither the
tables nor the abbreviated syllabi actually label the objectives
in the respective learning domains.
We developed 8 Concepts and Student Learning
Outcomes which were surveyed by 340 education
and industry partners.

NLN Educational Outcomes and
Competencies Model
2010 NLN Outcomes and Competency Model:
PN Level Competencies
• Human Flourishing: Promote the human dignity, integrity, self determination, and
personal growth of patients, oneself, and members of the health care team.

NLN Educational Outcomes and
Competencies Model
2010 NLN Integrating Concepts
Context and Environment, Knowledge and Science, Personal/Professional Development,
Quality and Safety, Relationship Centered Care, Teamwork
• Knowledge: Nursing education should ensure graduates are familiar
with concepts and literature in the following areas…
• Practice Know How: Nursing education should ensure graduates are
able to….
• Ethical Comportment: Nursing education should ensure graduates
are able to… Value/Appreciate/Act according to Ethical Standards
• These were NOT leveled to the PN level
Attempt to Level NLN Outcomes
• Massachusetts Nurse of the Future
• Ideas
• The Language was easier to understand then NLN
• Crosswalks between NLN and QSEN
• Crosswalks between NLN and Massachusetts
Practical Nurse Scope of Practice
• May 2013
Student Learning Outcomes Primarily focused on…
• National Association of PN Education and Service (NAPNES,
• National Federation of LPN’s (NFLPN, 2003) (On Table 10)
• NLN 2010 (PN Competency Statements)
• Minnesota Scope of Practice (2013)
Evidence that Student Learning Outcomes
established from National Standards

Survey Fall
This table shows evidence to ACEN (formerly NLNAC) that our Student
Learning Outcomes and Role Specific Competencies are derived from National
NLNAC or ACEN Standard 4.1:
The curriculum incorporates established professional standards, guidelines, and competencies, and has clearly
articulated student learning outcomes and program outcomes consistent with contemporary practice.
The Curriculum has 8 Professional
• Informatics/Technology p. 83
• Managing Care: P. 84
• Patient/Relationship Centered
Care: P. 86
• Nursing Judgment/Evidence Based
Care: P. 85
• Professional Identity and
Behaviors: P 87
• Quality Improvement: P. 88
• Safety: P. 89
• Teamwork and Collaboration:
P. 90
Professional Concepts were Defined
• Each concept
• National definitions
• Essential to this concept:
• leveled the definition to the PN Scope of Practice.
• Student Learning Outcomes developed from each Professional
• 2 to 3 Role Specific Competency statements
Each Role Specific Competency was
developed around the NLN Apprenticeships.
• Knowledge
• Practice Know How
• Ethical Comportment
• NLN Professional Identify: Assess how one’s personal strengths
and values affect one’s identity as a nurse and one’s
contributions as a member of the health care team.
Ethical Comportment is Evaluated with
• Reflective questions, papers and journaling
• Assist the student to identify values that influence their role as a
• Verbs such as: Value – Appreciate – Respect
• Students reflect on the value of the competencies in their practice
• as well as demonstrate the value in their practice.
Where do we Measure the Apprenticeships?
• Semester or Level 1:
• Knowledge and Practice measured
• Semester or Level 2:
• Practice and Ethical Comportment are measured
• ONLY a framework
• In actuality they are all combined and E can proceed K and P.
Ethical Comportment –
Is this nurse displaying Ethical Comportment?
