Purpose: The Program Evaluation Committee (PEC) facilitates the development, maintenance, and implementation of School of Nursing (SoN) evaluation/assessment activities and processes as described in the Systematic Evaluation Plan (SEP). This process is achieved through collaboration with appropriate SoN committees for the review and analysis of evaluation reports, and with the SoN for discussion, analysis, and quality improvement decision making. The outcome is to recommend SoN improvement initiatives based on the analysis of assessment/evaluation data and is documented in the comprehensive Program Improvement Plan (PIP). This process occurs throughout the academic year according to the SEP. A fall evaluation day is sponsored by the PEC in which targeted evaluation processes identified in the SEP are discussed by committees based on cyclical measurements that have been collected. The outcomes include mini PIP’s that are collected by the PEC to be compiled into a composite PIP that is reviewed annually. The 8-step process is depicted in the following graphic.
