Needs Assessment: External Factors that Impact Curriculum and Program Development
When a potential student is deciding on attending a new college or university, there are many factors that could change that decision. The desire to attend a nationally accredited school can play a large part in the decision-making process. Potential employers know that accredited institutions undergo rigorous processes to achieve and maintain the high quality standards set by accrediting bodies that looks great on a student’s resume. During this weeks post, I will post a brief description of the setting my team selected for the course project. I will explain which accrediting body or agency they have accreditation from and why. Then I will identify the standards I selected and explain if the setting meets the outlined expectations.
The northeast region team has selected Seton Hall University for this course’s project. The main campus of Seton Hall is located in South Orange, New Jersey with their health and sciences campus in Clifton and Nutley, New Jersey. This university has accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, or CCNE. This agency is the national voice for academic nursing education and works to, influence the nursing profession to improve healthcare, establish quality standards for nursing education while assisting schools in implementing them, and promotes public support for research, practice, and professional nursing education (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2012). It is the responsibility of the educators in the facility to make sure that the curriculum components such as the mission, vision, philosophy, organizational framework, student-learning outcomes, and the program of study are well outlined and taught appropriately (Keating & DeBoor, 2018). Seton Hall continues to use this accrediting agency to make sure that their education is up to date and they are preparing students for the world of nursing.
