Associate Degree Nursing Graduating Student Survey 2012-13


In Question #1 students were asked if the nursing education program at USU prepared them to be able to perform certain skills related to their duties as a nurse. Statements of the skills were given and respondents were to rate whether they: Strongly Disagreed, Disagreed, were Neutral, Agreed, Strongly Agreed with the statement or if the statement was Not Applicable to their duties.

When asked if the program prepared students to be able to manage the patient-centered care of a group of patients across the lifespan and their families using basic leadership skills, an overwhelming majority of respondents (92%) agreed or strongly agreed that they were able to perform that task. One respondent marked neutral and one respondent marked the question not applicable.
