1 Academic Program Development 2614 University Hall (MC 103) 601 South Morgan Street Chicago, Illinois October 1, 2015 TO: FROM: Ilene Harris, Chair Senate Committee on Educational Policy Dana Wright, Director of Academic Program Development I am submitting for the review and action of the Senate Committee on Educational Policy the attached Proposal to Eliminate the Campus Certificates in (1) Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing; (2) Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing; (3) Post-Master's Clinical Nurse Specialist; and (4) Post-Master's Nurse Practitioner/Midwifery. The proposal was approved by the College of Nursing Curriculum Committee on August 15, 2013 and the college faculty on September 27, In addition, the proposal was approved by the Graduate College Executive Committee on September 4, ATTACHMENT

2 Title: Proposal to eliminate four campus certificates in the College of Nursing: Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing, Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing, Clinical Nurse Specialist Post-Master's, and Nurse Practitioner/Midwifery Post Master's Sponsor: Executive Summary: Office of Academic Programs College of Nursing The College of Nursing proposes to eliminate four campus certificates: (1) Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing Campus Certificate, (2) Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing Campus Certificate, (3) Clinical Nurse Specialist Post-Master's Campus Certificate, and (4) Nurse Practitioner/Midwifery Post Master's Campus Certificate. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and its accrediting arm, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), targeted 2015 as the deadline for graduate nursing programs to transition all advanced specialties/concentrations away from the MS in Nursing to the Doctor of Nursing Practice. In AY , the UIC College of Nursing completed the process to revise the MS in Nursing from an advanced specialist degree to an advanced generalist degree which included the elimination of all (sixteen) advanced practice concentrations attached to the master s degree. Campus and external governance have approved this revision (see PR-14.23) effective Fall The four campus certificates were designed to provide nurses with advanced specialty expertise beyond the baccalaureate or master s degree. As specialty practice expertise has now been defined as acquirable only within the context of a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, the College of Nursing needs to eliminate these certificate programs. Currently, eight (8) students are enrolled in the Nurse Practitioner/Midwifery Post Master's Campus Certificate program on three regional campuses: Chicago (6); Rockford (1) and Quad Cities (1). Enrolled students will be allowed to complete the degree requirements, but must do so by May Although the Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing and Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing were developed in response to community/professional need at the time, enrollment has been consistently low. There have been no students enrolled in these certificate programs for the past three years. In addition, the Clinical Nurse Specialist Post-Master s certificate has no students currently enrolled. Description: The College of Nursing proposes to eliminate four campus certificates: (1) Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing Campus Certificate, (2) Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing Campus Certificate, (3) Clinical Nurse Specialist Post-Master's Campus Certificate, and (4) Nurse Practitioner/Midwifery Post Master's Campus Certificate. 1

3 Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing Campus Certificate 20FS5210NDEU The post-baccalaureate certificate was established in Fall It was designed as an online program and developed to prepare advanced practice nurses (APNs) with in depth knowledge of chronic, non-communicable cardiometabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. It required 9 semester hours comprised of three 3-hour online courses. Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing Campus Certificate 20FS5144NDEU The post-baccalaureate certificate was established in Fall It was designed as an online program and developed to educate nurses to provide culturally sensitive care for underserved and high-risk populations across the life span in a variety of health care setting. It required 12 semester hours comprised of three 3-hour online courses and 3 hours of practicum at a location to be determined in consultation with the College. Clinical Nurse Specialist Post-Master's Campus Certificate 20FS5147NDEG, 20FS5147NDE5, 20FS5147NDE6, 20FS5147NDE7, and 20FS5147NDE1 The certificate was established in Fall 2008 and offered onsite in Chicago, Peoria, Quad Cities, Rockford and Urbana. It was designed for nurses who had already received a master s degree in nursing and who wished to qualify for national credentialing in a specialty in which he/she is not currently credentialed. The certificate required hours of practicum courses in one of four CNS specialty areas: acute care, geriatric care, mental health, or pediatrics. Nurse Practitioner/Midwifery Post Master's Campus Certificate 20FS5146NDEG, 20FS5146NDE5, 20FS5146NDE6, 20FS5146NDE7, and 20FS5146NDE1 The certificate was established in Fall 2008 and offered onsite in Chicago, Peoria, Quad Cities, Rockford and Urbana. It was designed for nurses who had already received a master s degree in nursing and who wished to qualify for national credentialing in a specialty in which he/she is not currently credentialed. The certificate required hours of practicum courses in one of eleven NP specialty areas: nurse midwifery, pediatrics, women s health, acute care, adult/geriatric, adult, geriatric, mental health, family, occupational health/family, or school/family. The College of Nursing will retain three (3) campus certificates Advanced Practice Palliative Care Campus Certificate (which will be revised during AY ) School Nurse Campus Certificate, and Teaching/Learning in Nursing and Health Sciences. All of these programs have been developed to provide advanced nursing knowledge beyond the baccalaureate degree in nursing however these are not considered advanced specialty practice roles (nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, nurse midwifery, nurse anesthetist). 2

4 Justification: The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and its accrediting arm, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), targeted 2015 as the deadline for graduate nursing programs to transition all advanced specialties/ concentrations away from the MS in Nursing to the Doctor of Nursing Practice. In AY , the UIC College of Nursing completed the process to revise the MS in Nursing from an advanced specialist degree to an advanced generalist degree which included the elimination of all (sixteen) advanced practice concentrations attached to the master s degree. Campus and external governance have approved the revision (see PR-14.23) effective Fall The four campus certificates were designed to provide master s-educated nurses with advanced specialty expertise. As this expertise has now been defined as acquirable only within the context of a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, the College of Nursing needs to eliminate these certificate programs. It is also important to offer sustainable programs with sufficient enrollment and demand. Given that the Advanced Practice Cardiometabolic Nursing and Advanced Practice Forensic Nursing have not been offered in the past three years due to lack of student enrollment, it is important to propose their elimination. Catalog Statement: Campus certificates are not listed in the UIC Graduate Catalog under degrees offered by a particular college. Instead, campus certificate programs are listed in a special section of the catalog entitled Additional Opportunities for Graduate and Professional Study. The list includes the name, college, and program code affiliated with each certificate, and links to program information on the college or School of Continuing Studies website. See The four campus certificates being eliminated will be removed from this list. Minority Impact Statement: Budgetary and Staff Implications: The proposed program changes will allow the College of Nursing to offer a graduate curricula that are consistent with healthcare delivery, meets the needs of our communities of interests, including those from diverse backgrounds. Both minority and non-minority APN graduate students will be positively affected by these changes. We do not foresee any budgetary impact or staff implications from the elimination of these certificate programs. Library Resource Implications: Space Implications: Rebecca Raszewski, the College of Nursing s subject specialist in the Library of the Health Sciences at Chicago, has been informed that the certificate programs are being eliminated to insure that library resources can be reallocated to other nursing specialty areas ( correspondence attached). As the certificate programs are currently under- or not enrolled, the eliminations will have no impact on space within the College. 3

I am aware of the curriculum changes that the UIC College of Nursing has undergone regarding its BSN, MS, DNP, and PhD programs, as well as the elimination of some of their certificate programs. We have collaborated with the College to make sure that we have the resources available for students. Examples of how the library is addressing these changes are creating an online DNP project guide for DNP students and buying more print and electronic books that are relevant to all students.
