                        Annual Program Review Update
                                          Instructions

The Annual Self-Study is conducted by each unit on each campus and consists of an analysis of
changes within the unit as well as significant new funding needs for staff, resources, facilities, and
equipment. It should be submitted or renewed every year by May 15th in anticipation of
budget planning for the fiscal year, which begins July 1 of the following calendar year.

Extensive data sets have been distributed to all Department Chairs and are linked to the Program
Review website (password 11111). Chairs have received training on the use of these data sets.
Please consult with your Department Chair or Raj Bajaj for assistance interpreting the data
relevant to your discipline. Note that you are only required to mention data relevant to your
analysis or requests. Should you wish assistance with research analysis please fill out the form at
http://academic.rcc.edu/ir/requestform.html and you will be contacted to schedule a time to discuss
analysis of your data. You may also request a labor market analysis using this form.

The questions on the subsequent pages are intended to assist you in planning for your unit. If
there is no change from your prior report, you may simply resubmit the information in that
report (or any portion that remains constant) from the prior year.

Please include pertinent documents such as student learning outcomes assessment reports and data
analysis specifically supporting any requests for new faculty, facilities or equipment. You are
encouraged to use lists, tables, and other formatting to clarify your requests and make them easy
for large committees to review quickly. If there may be negative consequences for enrollment,
safety or other important concerns if the funding is not provided please make this known in
context.

The forms that follow are separated into pages for ease of distribution to relevant subcommittees.
Please keep the pages separated if possible (though part of the same electronic file), with the
headers as they appear, and be sure to include your unit, campus, contact person (this may
change from topic to topic) and date on each page submitted. Don’t let formatting concerns slow
you down. If you have difficulty with formatting, the Administrative Support Center can adjust
the document for you. Simply add responses to those questions that apply and forward the
document to the Administrative Support Center with a request to format it appropriately.

If you cannot identify in which category your request belongs,, if you have complex funding
requests please schedule an appointment with your campus’ Vice President for Business Services
right away. They will assist you with estimating the cost of your requests. For simple requests
such as the cost of a staff member, please e-mail your Vice President. It is vital to include cost
estimates in your request forms.

                      Annual Program Review Update
                                                                     Unit: Nursing: NRN

                                                                      Date: May 15, 2009




                        Trends and Relevant Data (part 1)

1. Has there been any change in the status of your unit? (if not, skip to #2)



       a. Has your unit shifted departments?

           No.

       b. Have new programs been created by your unit?

           A grant-funded Fast Track generic Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program
           was developed at Rubidoux High School. High school students are currently
           enrolled in science courses that are being offered on the Rubidoux High School
           campus. Upon high school graduation, the students will have completed the
           prerequisites for the ADN Program and will be eligible for admission to the
           first semester of the program. This program not only meets the needs of
           another segment of the population within the Riverside Community College
           District (RCCD), but also responds to the severe nursing shortage in
           California.

       c. Have activities in other units impacted your unit? For example, a new nursing
          program could cause greater demand for life science courses.

           As reported in the 2008 Annual Program Review, demand for science courses
           needed for enrollment in the ADN Program continues to exceed available
           spaces. It is anticipated that adequate spaces will be available in these courses
           once the new science and math building opens in several years.

           The discussion about the Moreno Valley campus developing a nursing
           program was determined by an independent consultant and the Board of
           Trustees to be a duplication of efforts and not economically feasible at this
           time. The district has made a major commitment to the School of Nursing at
           Riverside City College through the new School of Nursing building scheduled


                                             3
           to break ground in Fall 2009. This facility, which triples the space for nursing
           instruction is planned for growth of both the registered nursing and vocational
           nursing programs to meet the growing healthcare needs in the communities
           served by the Riverside Community College District. The new facility will
           also provide space for increased educational programs for registered nurses
           and licensed vocational nurses currently working in the community.
           Additionally, exploration of offering a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree
           on the RCC campus is taking place. With a satellite program already in
           existence at March Education Center, the resources needed for nursing
           programs, especially clinical sites, have reached maximum capacity.

           With the introduction of new nursing programs and increased enrollment in
           existing nursing programs in the Inland Empire, concern about competition for
           needed resources, such as clinical space, students, and nursing faculty has
           increased.

2. Have there been any significant changes in enrollment, retention, success rates, or
   environmental demographics that impact your discipline (See Dataset provided to all
   chairs)? If there are no significant* changes in your unit’s opinion, say “None” and
   skip to question #3.

   None. Enrollment success and environmental demographics remain essentially the
   same. The ADN program’s retention rate has decreased by 4% (from 91% to 87%),
   similar to other state nursing program analyses (from 84% to 80%).

3. What changes does the unit plan to make to advance enrollment management goals?
   If your plan necessitates resource changes make sure those needs are reflected in the
       applicable resource request sections. *Your unit may define “significant change” in
   this context for itself. If your unit thinks it’s a “significant change” then for purposes of this
   review please note it.

   Enrollments in all four semesters of the ADN Program at both the Riverside and
   March Education Center campuses have been projected through the time period
   covered by the current grant funding. This was based on anticipated faculty and
   clinical agency resources, as well as grant requirements.

               interpreted as meaning that the students have improved in meeting these essential SLOs. Students are required to remediate if they are
               unsuccessful in passing the SLOs because of the clinical safety concerns.

#5, Step 4, 3: Include all potential links to other outcomes in the course, other courses, or any other parts of the institution you deem appropriate.
               Success in meeting the two SLOs is also measured by means of the students’ clinical performance. A record of students’ performance
               on these essential SLOs is maintained and reported at monthly faculty meetings. Ongoing analysis of this data is used to assess
               policies and procedures to promote student attainment of the SLOs.

#5 Step 5, 1: Do the results of this assessment indicate a need for another assessment? When? Why?
              The ADN faculty are currently in the process of evaluating the need to add a SLO that reflects updated content on the NCLEX test
              plan. An NCLEX comprehensive predictor exam given at the end of the program will also be considered as a measure of learning
              outcomes assessment. The faculty will also evaluate the need for reportable SLOs, other than the course grade, in NRN 15, 16, and 17.

#5 Step 5, 2: As a result of the assessment, is the unit considering any modifications to improve the learning outcome? What are they? When will they occur? Do they involve
               other units?
                An ad hoc committee to examine procedures related to safe medication administration has been meeting throughout the 2008-2009
                academic year. Revisions to our policies and procedures have been formulated and will be presented to nursing faculty at the year-end
                Program Review meeting. These changes may result in the need to reevaluate the current measurement of the SLO on dosage
                calculation used for program assessment..
