2018 Every nursing program works hard to achieve a successful accreditation. The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) recently evaluated our nursing degree programs at the baccalaureate, master's and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) levels. In addition, we had a joint specialty accreditation with the Council on Accreditation (COA) of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs. Most of the current faculty, lab and administrative staff had not experienced a site visit, but even so, our program achieved full accreditation status, with no compliance issues. We have received public recognition that our nursing program met all CCNE standards (Commission on Collegiate Education [CCNE], 2013b), but perhaps more importantly, the positive CCNE report affirmed theimportance ofthe time invested in planning, developing, and implementing structures and processes for program assessment and improvement.

2015 Portfolios have been used in higher education for the past several years for assessment of student learning and growth and serve as the basis for summative and formative evaluations. While there is some information in the literature on how undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing, and allied health students might use portfolios to showcase acquired knowledge and skills, there is a dearth of information on the use of e-Portfolios with students in doctor of nursing practice programs. There are also limited findings regarding the creative use of technology (that includes infographics and other multimedia tools) to enhance learning outcomes (Stephens & Parr, 2013). This article presents engaging and meaningful ways technology can be used within e-Portfolios. Thus, e-Portfolios become more than a repository for academic evidence; they become unique stories that reflect the breadth and depth of students' learner-centered outcomes.

2013 The purpose of this project was to elicit the opinions of members of AORN of Central Ohio regarding Ohio’s BSN-in-10 initiative. Using a focus group, we sought to answer the following question: is there a need to legislate that newly licensed RNs in Ohio obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) within 10 years? Participants valued higher education but were not informed about the need for more BSN-prepared nurses. They also were not aware of the professional and financial effects of obtaining a baccalaureate degree, the available resources to assist them in obtaining one, or collaborative nursing association partnerships that advocate for BSN-in-10 legislation. The results suggest that health care policy advocates need to find alternative means to communicate essential information to RNs.
