Program Updates Undergraduate Program The College of Nursing, in fall 2012, had 172 students enrolled in the Accelerated BSN program. The goal to increase enrollment to 70 students was modified because of the uncertainty of the extension of the VA Nursing Academy (VANA) Program and the need to continue within the current infrastructure. However, six additional students per cohort were added. The federal support of VANA expires fall 2013 and is to be maintained with local level support. As of June 2013, there was an agreement on the MOU that will be in place for three years. A new course review plan was implemented June 2012. In previous years, faculty presented their review summary after completing the second offering of their course. This year the entire undergraduate faculty met and all summaries were presented at one time. The method was more comprehensive, increased the awareness of the curriculum and allowed for deeper discussions of issues. Thus it will be continued in the future. The integration of Quality and Safety in Nursing Education (QSEN) and the BSN Essentials was completed prior to this academic year and remains within the revised curriculum: • The clinical evaluation tool requires exemplars where the student can identify and discuss elements of Quality and Safety in addition to the Essentials. • There is dedicated content on this within the Professional Nursing and Leadership and Management in Nursing courses. • The Promise of Nursing Accelerated BSN Toolbox has dedicated modules that introduce a number of the concepts to incoming students. In the spring of 2013, 36 Accelerated BSN students were included with the College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy and College of Health Professions in the Simulated Interprofessional Round Experience (SIRE) curriculum. The objective was for students to participate in a curricular model to improve their interprofessional teamwork and communication skills for use in a clinical setting. For the Accelerated BSN fall 2013 cohort, the CON received 293 completed applications and admissions were increased to 66 students (86% in-state). Thirty-eight percent of the students accepted were diverse students with 27% minority (9 Black; 3 American Indian; 5 Asian; 1 Hispanic), 15% male and 15% from disadvantaged backgrounds. Seventy-four percent of the students offered had previous degrees. The mean attrition rate for the 2012 cohorts averaged about 3.5%. MSN and DNP Programs The College of Nursing, in fall of 2012, had 208 students enrolled in the MSN and DNP programs. In fall of 2012 and spring of 2013 we graduated 54 MSN and DNP students. In spring of 2013 we received 270 completed applications to these programs for the 2013-2014 year. This number increased from 215 received the previous year. We admitted 91 students to start fall 2013 and currently have 85 who have accepted (6 ANP, 12 PNP, 54 FNP and 13 Post-MSN

DNP). Twenty-six percent of the students accepted are alumni graduates. When looking specifically at programs, the Post-MSN DNP program has the highest alumni ratio at 86% overall. Our average admitting GPA for our upcoming Post-BSN DNP program is 3.77; for the Post-BSN MSN program 3.78 and for the Post-MSN DNP program 3.72. For the 2013 admission cycle, we have 24% diversity in our students with five male, 10 African American, one Asian, one Hispanic and one American Indian. For 2012, 73% of students were in-state and we admitted 69% of in-state students for fall 2013. Since 2009, 38 students have left the program. In 2009, our attrition rate was 22.4% and we made the decision to change to one academic advisor for program planning and developed an early academic warning system for faster follow up to recover students. Since that time we redesigned the admission rubric to continue to improve applicants chosen and developed an on-line boot camp prior to the first day of class to improve outcomes. Table 1 represents the program attrition rate. The current attrition rate is 1.4%. The new MSN Essentials, gerontology competencies, QSEN competences, interprofessional competencies, APRN competencies and DNP competencies/essentials were incorporated into the program with program changes that were made this year. MSN Program The College of Nuring, in fall 2012, had 44 students enrolled in the MSN program. In fall 2012 and spring of 2013 we had 16 students graduate from this program. With a focus on the DNP program, we are admitting fewer MSN students. For fall 2013 the College admitted 11 MSN students. This includes one ANP, five PNPs and five FNPs. The College did not admit into the Nurse Educator (NE) or Nurse Administrator programs and currently admission to these programs is suspended. The last NE student graduated December 2012. The NE courses continue to be offered to the MSN, DNP and PhD students, allowing them to qualify for the national NFLP NE certification examination. Since 2009, we have had twelve students change from the MSN to DNP. Thirty-seven students have changed from DNP to MSN. DNP Program The College of Nursing, in fall of 2012, had 161 DNP students in the program (this included both Post-BSN DNP and Post-MSN DNP). In fall 2013, we admitted 60 Post-BSN DNP students (8 ANP, 9 PNP and 43 FNP). We also admitted 13 Post-MSN DNP. In fall of 2012 and spring of 2013 we graduated 38 DNP students from our program. We graduated one Post-MSN DNP student in fall 2012 and five in spring 2013 for a total of six. Of our first 15 Post-BSN DNP students who graduated spring 2012, 100% passed certification. This past year, the DNP curriculum was revised with some new course descriptions. Objectives to improve the sequencing of DNP education were implemented in the fall 2012. The Post-MSN DNP program was decreased to 4 semesters with updated residency and project guidelines to improve quality improvement work. The substantive change was submitted to CCNE and the continuous improvement progress report will be submitted December 2013.

The PhD students continue the steady increase of published and presented scholarly work. Seven students published 10 articles in peer-reviewed journals. Students are increasingly co-publishing with peers or faculty. Eighteen students presented at international, national, or regional conferences. Five students were awarded research funding. These outcomes have significantly increased compared to 2011-2012 data. The PhD program has reached full student capacity based upon numbers of PhD faculty who can mentor students (n = 19) during the candidacy phase and faculty (n = 13) who can chair dissertation committees. Nineteen new students were admitted for matriculation in fall 2013, the highest number of students admitted in an entry cohort. Four students graduated during 20122013 with a much larger number expected to graduate in 2013-2014, as we have a total of 21 (30%) students in the candidacy phase of dissertation. The fall 2013 incoming students have impressive credentials and are geographically spread throughout the continental US, with approximately 35% living in South Carolina. Program Outcomes For the calendar year 2012 (4 quarters) 108 Accelerated BSN graduates sat for the NCLEX exam with 103 passing on the first attempt. The NCLEX pass rate was 95.4%. The CON annual pass rate was above the pass rate of South Carolina (93.4%) and the nation (90.3%). All four adult nurse practitioner (ANP) graduates (100%) passed the ANP certification exam as reported by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner Certification Program (AANPCP). Eleven family nurse practitioner (FNP) graduates took the AANPCP exam and nine (82%) passed. The issue with the AANPCP exam is that it only reports exam year and not the year of graduation so two students who graduated in the 1990s took this exam and impacted our overall scores. Nine FNP graduates took the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) with a 67% pass rate. Six pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) graduates (100%) passed the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PCNB) exam. All four PhD graduates have full time academic positions in university settings.

Scholarships and Grants Grants The College of Nursing was proud to once again receive funding for round six of the New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) Scholarship Program sponsored jointly by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). This new award of $100,000 will provide 10 second-degree, minority students from disadvantaged backgrounds with $10,000 scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year. Since 2008, we have awarded 65 NCIN scholarships. • The first cohort of 20 was very successful. All 20 completed the program and 19 are employed as nurses. One has completed an MSN and three are currently in the DNP program. • The second cohort consisted of 10 students – one withdrew from the program and nine have completed the program. Three are currently working as nurses. • In the third cohort, there were 11 students who received $10,000 each at the beginning of their academic program, six in fall 2012 and five in spring 2013. Among this cohort, there was one academic dismissal due to failure in two courses, one withdrawal due to personal reasons, and one modified academic degree program due to a course failure. Three students in this cohort are in the top ten of their class, one completing the first semester of coursework with a perfect 4.0 GPA. One student concurrently completed her master’s degree in exercise science while completing her first semester of coursework in the Accelerated BSN program. The College of Nursing is in year 3 of a 5-year HRSA Advanced Nursing Education Expansion (ANEE) grant for financial assistance for $1.4 million dollars. This grant will support 30 NP students with a stipend of $22,000 a year for students, for up to two years. Eight students were accepted this year (two MSN and six DNP). Four of the eight are either under-represented students or come from disadvantaged backgrounds. They will receive two full years of funding. Eight students received funding the first year of the grant and seven graduated after receiving two years of funding. One student is still receiving funding from the previous year. In the second year of funding, eight students were funded. Several will graduate in spring 2014 and one will graduate fall 2014. At this time, 24 students have been funded with this grant (five under-represented and three disadvantaged), representing 33% diversity. The final six students were chosen for the 2013-2014 year. The College of Nursing provided 19 (eleven full-time and eight part-time) students with $175,000 of HRSA Advanced Education Nurse Traineeship (AENT) funding this year. The current overall GPA of students in this program is 3.95. Seventeen of these students were either minority students or from disadvantaged backgrounds and three were military veterans. Sixteen of the students live or work in a rural, medically underserved or health professional shortage areas. The College of Nursing has provided 31 students with National Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) funding since 2007, with $150,000 in funding ($135,000 from HRSA and $15,000 from the CON). Seventeen of these students have graduated and three where hired at MUSC to meet the on-going faculty needs. In the 2012-2013 funding period, we had 30 PhD students apply for

NFLP funding. Our funding allowed us to support 12 of these students. Three of these students are projected to graduate at the end of this academic year (2012-2013) and 8 have requested funding for next year (2013-2014). Of the three graduating students, one received NFLP financial support for three years, one for four years and the other for the full five years. All three students will be working in faculty positions upon graduation. Three of the continuing students are expected to graduate in the next academic year (2013-2014). A grant has been submitted for the 2013-2014 academic year. Scholarships $635,884 in scholarships were allocated to students during the 2012-2013 academic year. The breakdown is as follows: • • • • • • • • •

Alumni Activity The College of Nursing Alumni Association Board consists of: K. T. Alwahab, Katie Caldwell, Marcia Cleveland, Hannah French, Cathy Landis (President), Susan Newman, Susan Stabene, and Abbie Thomas The board met four times throughout the year. The group agreed to research dates and times where regional events would occur and the College of Nursing Alumni Association Board could interact with alumni from across the state. The first event, held at the Mad River Bar and Grill, was very successful. It coincided with the DNP students on campus and gave the alumni board members the opportunity to mentor future students. With the assistance of the Office of Alumni Affairs, the Class of 1953 held a special diamond jubilee dinner the night before the Golden Grads program in May. More than 14 of the original class of 46 returned to reminisce about the College of Nursing and how much it meant to them through the years. Future plans for the board include: •

• • • •

Define and clearly advertise the purpose of the Alumni Association, which is to “engage alumni, network with alumni, recognize alumni achievements and mentor and act in a legislative roll for the nursing/healthcare profession.” Revise by-laws. Host across the state meet and greet alumni association events where College of Nursing alumni are invited to mingle and network. Nominate new members who are interested in making a difference in the College of Nursing Alumni Association. Host several “lunch and learn” programs for current students to introduce them to the importance of becoming involved with the Alumni Association when they become alumni. Award student scholarships.

Recruitment During the July 1, 2012-July 2013 timeframe, there were 3227 inquiries for College of Nursing degree programs (1809 Accelerated BSN, 554 MSN, 624 DNP, and 240 PhD inquiries). In an effort to increase the Post-MSN DNP applicant pool, email and mailing addresses of advanced practice registered nurses were purchased from the South Carolina, North Carolina and West Virginia State Boards of Nursing. The College of Nursing marketing department created an email advertisement that was sent at the end of November and again in February to North Carolina nurse practitioners. A postcard advertisement was created and mailed to all South Carolina and West Virginia nurse practitioners at the end of November. In addition, DNP faculty dispersed brochures about the Post-MSN DNP program at local APRN conferences.

The Nursing Club at the College of Charleston held two meetings on their campus involving College of Nursing faculty, staff, and students, and a tour of the MUSC Healthcare Simulation Center was facilitated. The AHEC Summer Academy for high school students involved College of Nursing faculty, staff, and students. The College of Nursing sponsored a portion of the Ernest Just Symposium, and welcomed students interested in nursing to the College of Nursing for information and a Simulation Center experience. As part of the Robert Wood Johnson New Careers in Nursing program, scholars were asked to identify a prospective nursing student from an under-represented population and ask them to come to campus to attend a class, meet with faculty and current students, and tour the simulation lab. Three recruitment videos were developed and published on the MUSC website. The videos targeted students interested in PhD or DNP programs and specifically Post-BSN to PhD applicants and men interested in graduate degrees. A BSN to PhD video was created and posted on the website to highlight stories of current Accelerated BSN students with the intent to obtain a doctorate. Academics and Student Tracking The Office of Academics continues to maintain approximately 404 current affiliation agreements between the College of Nursing and health care facilities in and out of South Carolina to provide learning experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students. Three hundred and seventeen are within South Carolina. We have 840 preceptors who assist us in our program. The Office of Academics houses an extensive database of College of Nursing preceptors and facilities utilized in yearly clinical student placements. The office tracks the students’ academic progress, criminal background checks, drug testing, maintenance of appropriate licensures, code of conduct, compliances with HIPAA, OSHA and BLS training, immunizations as requested by agencies, and the quarterly NCLEX reports.

B. RESEARCH The College of Nursing (CON) Office of Research had another very productive year. For the first time in the history of the CON, we are ranked in the top 25 in National Institute of Health (NIH) funding (ranked 21st) among Colleges of Nursing across the country. We are the highest ranked CON in the state, and 5th highest in the Southeastern US. In the past five years, we have obtained 7 NIH R01 awards, and additional NIH training and pilot awards. Currently, 71% (12/17) of the educator-researcher faculty are funded as PIs on federally funded grants. We continue to strengthen our infrastructure and pre- and post-award support systems in the Office of Research. These include: Interim Associate Dean for Research (Kelechi), two biostatisticians (Mueller, Dumas), senior methodologist (Zapka), 4 staff (Lopez, Vining, Ferko, Greene), 17 educator-researcher faculty, an active research committee, and two CON centers. The previous Associate Dean for Research (Andrews) resigned January 1, 2013 to become Dean of the College of Nursing at the University of South Carolina. Additional infrastructure includes “Research for Lunch” (mock reviews) 6-8 weeks prior to grant submissions, and bi-weekly “Think Tanks” for grant ideas, specific aims review, and other dialogue. New this year is the addition of a consultation process for yearly planning with faculty that includes goal setting, timelines, and ongoing contact with program officers. A new faculty and staff development program was implemented to foster the continuing development of research knowledge and skills. An external review process was also implemented. The Office of Research works in conjunction with the two CON Centers: • SCTR Center for Community Health Partnerships (SCTR-CCHP) https://sctr.musc.edu/index.php/ce-about-us • Technology Applications Center for Healthful Lifestyles (TACHL) http://tachl.musc.edu/ Both centers are leading faculty developed research initiatives that strongly appeal to NIH. The majority of funded research focuses on community based behavioral interventions and technology based innovations (i.e., mobile health applications) to improve health outcomes. The CON research is on the cutting edge of health care transformation with the implementation of innovative interventions for symptom and chronic illness management, transitional care, primary care, and community adoption of healthy behaviors. Four CON faculty lead SCTR cores: Community Engagement (Jenkins/Newman), Recruitment and Retention (Kelechi), and Novel Technologies (Treiber). Other CON/SCTR collaborators are: the SUCCESS Center, SOCRATES/K-12 mentoring program, Regulatory Core, TEACH Core, Biorepository, Research Nexus and Bioinformatics. CON faculty serve as reviewers for the MUSC Office of Research Development’s Research Program Grant (RPG), K12 applications, SCTR pilot grants, and the VA REAP pilot projects. Other intra-institutional research collaborations include the Center for Health Disparities Research, Hollings Cancer Center, College of Medicine, College of Dental Medicine, and College of Health Professions, and the VA. Thirty percent of our research grants during the past year involve interprofessional collaborators outside the CON.

Community-Based Initiatives All of the following practice faculty initiatives address health equity and the elimination of health disparities within a framework that supports education, practice, and research. • Teen Health Leadership Program Derek Toth, MSW, is the coordinator for the Teen Health Leadership Program (THLP) that is funded by the National Library of Medicine through the Center for Public Service Communications. The THLP is a collaborative program between the College of Nursing, MUSC Library, Communities in Schools, and St. John’s High School. The project promotes health information literacy as well as developing leadership skills, enabling the students to design and implement outreach projects to improve the awareness and use of quality health information in their community. The THLP seeks to empower high school students by providing resources and support for them to assist and serve their communities. Through a series of experiential opportunities and mentorship, the THLP also seeks to encourage young people of diverse backgrounds to become health professionals. In 2012-2013 the THLP had 18 students enrolled in the program (seniors and juniors). For the academic year 2012-2013, the students decided to research the health topic of “autism” and focus their community outreach activities on increasing awareness of the signs and symptoms of “autism” among the fellow high school students and their families. Motivated by the visit from M. Frampton Gwynette, MD, MUSC General Psychiatry Clinic Director and cochair for the MUSC Autism Center, Strategic Planning Committee, the teens created a public service announcement informational video on autism to be used by The Rex project, a MUSC sponsored program addressing childhood autism. The video was written and directed by the students and is now posted by The Rex project on Twitter and Facebook. The students also presented their project and video on “autism” to staff at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in April of 2013. • Early Intervention to Reduce Violence Program Deborah Williamson, DHA, MSN, RN, CNM, is the director of the program that was funded by the Duke Endowment. This program addresses interpersonal violence and domestic violence through a network of community partners using primary prevention and early intervention approaches in school and primary care settings. The grant also provided training and quality assurance measures for primary care providers for effective screening and referral for victims of interpersonal violence. Grant activities included the development of a website containing information on interpersonal violence tailored for primary care providers DVguidelines.org. Education of the next generation of health care professionals is also a component of this grant. Ninety-five DNP students were introduced to the website for use in their future practices The Domestic Violence Coordinating Council (DVCC) for the Tri-Counties was supported by this grant. This council is composed of 110 representatives from law enforcement, the judicial system, education, business owners, health care providers, and community advocates. The work of the council focuses on domestic violence awareness, prevention, victim support, perpetrator accountability and community action. The council supported 5 programs

This family literacy program promotes school readiness skills in 3-year olds and provides the mothers with ESOL classes and opportunities to increase health literacy through a health promotion program that includes interactive classroom activities and computer instruction. The program offered weekly health promotion classes to 50 Spanish-speaking women. Developmental testing of 32 3-year olds was completed on entry to the program and at the end of the school year. Abrazos provides opportunities for Accelerated BSN students to participate in classroom activities related to health education, to assist with the pediatric developmental screenings, adult health screenings, administration of flu vaccines, and also provides opportunities for community data collection such as key informant interviews. Five Accelerated BSN students worked with faculty and staff this past year providing health promotion activities for the mothers and collecting data for academic assignments. • PASOs (which means “Steps” in Spanish) Romina McCandless, MPH, is the PASOs program coordinator and provides the leadership for the development and implementation of this program in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties. PASOs is providing a bridge between the Latino community and the health care system in order to maximize the health of Latino women and children, and supports them in accessing needed resources. The mission of PASOs is to help the Latino community and service providers work together for strong and healthy families. This is accomplished through education, support, and grassroots leadership development. This community-based program worked to achieve this mission through providing the following community services in 20122013: - 10 outreach events facilitated (355 persons supported with resources through PASOs) - 26 community health lessons on maternal-child health topics (290 participants) - 44 radio shows (2,500 estimated listeners reached through radio programs) - 4 community health worker trainings in resource navigation (10 Promotores). - 3 professional academic presentations (41 professional attendees, 10 BSN students)

Cultural Competency Education • Hispanic Health Initiative Scholars Program Anna Patton Tecklenburg, MA, is the program coordinator for the Hispanic Health Initiative Scholars Program. The College of Nursing, Hispanic Health Initiative Scholars Program selects students based on academic performance, interest in diverse cultures and community participatory action. This model program builds cultural competency, sensitivity to community needs, the ability to tailor care, and the leadership skills necessary for our graduates to address the social determinants of health and the elimination of health disparities. Their immersion with members of the Hispanic community and providers involved in their care provides insight into nursing issues of language access, advocacy, negotiation across agencies, and the social and civic contexts that influence health and illness. A total of 21 students (35%) were accepted into the HHI scholars program in the 2013 academic year from an applicant pool of applicants of the Accelerated BSN class. • Medical Spanish for Health Professions Sam Cogdell, ATA-certified translator (SPAN-ENG), Adjunct Spanish Instructor, MUSC CON offered Intermediate Spanish for Health Professions in the fall 2012 as an elective course in the interprofessional curriculum. IP 706 Intermediate Spanish for Health Professions course was offered in the fall of 2013 with 9 students enrolled (2 College of Pharmcy, 1 College of Nursing, 4 College of Health Professions, 2 College of Graduate Studies). The decision not to offer beginning medical Spanish was based on the availability of beginner classes offered in other venues. This class targeted learners who were advanced enough to participate in a course focused on medical terminology. Grants Funded A total of $152,405 in practice grants funded this year are presented in Table 9 on page 62. Practice grants submitted this year are presented in Table 10 on page 62.

D. FACULTY Alignment of Resources Our aim for organizational culture is to ensure a culture within the College that actualizes scholarship, life-long learning, diversity, service, caring, creativity, empowerment, collaboration, advocacy, equity, and integrity. To that end, the first objective for organizational culture is to align faculty and organizational resources to achieve our values and strategic goals. This year, eight faculty members were hired, three more than those hired in 2011-2012. As national changes in health care goals and regulations take place, the College of Nursing faculty provides an educational framework that strategically aligns with contemporary health care tends. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree, which accepted the first cohort of students in fall 2009, graduated the third cohort in May 2013. Faculty and organizational resources were realigned to meet an increased enrollment of 24% over the past two years and the latest standards in curricular design for DNP programs, set forth by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the accrediting body for colleges of nursing. Another objective for organizational culture was to foster an environment that promotes openness to diverse perspectives, feelings of inclusion, and full participation for all students, staff, and faculty. The College of Nursing strives to maintain a positive culture of high collegiality and respect. To that end the Diversity Task Force became the Diversity Committee – a permanent, standing Committee for the College with members and functions voted on for inclusion in the Faculty Bylaws. The MUSC Excellence Rounding model was maintained by the Department Chair where faculty and the Department Chair meet to discuss what is working well, whether faculty perceive to be supported, and what else can be done to make working at the College more successful. Faculty reported they are pleased with this initiative and request that it continue for 2013-2014. With the growth in the number of new faculty expected in the upcoming year, program directors will assume some of the responsibility for rounding in each of the respective programs. MUSC Excellence in Rounding will offer faculty the dual opportunity to meet one-on-one with directors and the Department Chair to discuss pertinent issues related to organizational culture, incentives, promotion, tenure, resource and development needs. Mentoring, Scholarship, and Leadership Activities The second objective for organizational culture was to promote the mentorship, scholarship and leadership activities of faculty. A comprehensive College of Nursing Career Development Plan guides the development of the potential of individual faculty members in their multifaceted faculty role - teacher, scholar, professional, public servant - through orientation, mentoring, ongoing development, and shared faculty governance. This year, the comprehensive and tailored new faculty orientation model that was beta tested and implemented for all incoming faculty in 2012-2103 will be expanded to an online environment. Though self-paced modules available in Moodle, faculty will be able to review key components of the orientation process including organizational culture, strategic planning, teaching and workload, evaluation information,

63


Medical University of South Carolina

College of Nursing

advising guidelines, peer review, and APT criteria. In addition, throughout the upcoming year, faculty development approaches that feature distinct activities will be implemented for multiple facets of faculty life with an emphasis on developing and refining the teaching skills of faculty and promoting scholarship. Several faculty attended the teaching series offered through the AppleTree Society and received certificates of completion. Two faculty became certified nurse educators. Our goal is to provide rich opportunities for faculty to attend development sessions, both on and off campus, to enhance the competencies in teaching, practice, and research. Scholarship and leadership outcomes among faculty members of the College of Nursing during 2012-2013 include: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

One assistant professor promoted to associate professor. One associate professor promoted to full professor. One tenured faculty accomplished successful post-tenure review. 67% (29/43) published one or more articles in peer-reviewed journals. 86% (37/43) submitted articles for publication. 21% (9/43) held professional leadership positions. Seven honored for teaching excellence at the College of Nursing Convocations. One recipient of the MUSC Teaching Excellence, Developing Teacher Award. One recipient of the MUSC Foundation Outstanding Clinician Award. One Presidential Scholar. Five received the Palmetto Gold Award for Nursing Excellence from South Carolina Nurses Foundation. One received the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing New Investigator’s Award. One received the Community Engaged Scholars Award, through the CTSA and CON. Two inducted as Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing. One Visiting Scholar Award, University of Texas, Houston. One Advisor, FDA Endocrinologic and Metabolic (EMDAC) Drug Committee. One Member of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Diversity & Inclusion Committee. One Women’s Scholar Initiative, Best Practice Fellow, MUSC. One Summer Genetics Institute Scholar, NIH. One State NAACP Health Advocacy Presidential Citation Award.

B. PHYSICAL/TECHNOLOGICAL RESOURCES: During winter 2012 the College of Nursing relocated to temporary space in the Harborview Office Tower and the College of Health Professions Building B. The renovation, approved in 2012 and funded by both College of Nursing and University resources, officially began in spring, 2013. It is estimated that the College of Nursing will return to the state of the art building in late 2014. Additional campus space has been utilized again this year for some of the College of Nursing research programs. The Nursing Technology Center (NTC) continues to provide optimal information technology equipment and resources during the year to support the College’s faculty, staff, and students. The College of Nursing web page is viewed as the portal for students and potential faculty. It is reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis. The NTC also began working to develop videos to assist with ongoing College of Nursing training needs. The joint project between the OCIO and the College of Nursing continued during FY13 to update and integrate faculty, staff, and student database needs. The MUSC Healthcare Simulation Lab, located on the first floor of the College, continues to support students in state of the art clinical instruction at all levels of the educational program.

Financial Challenges As part of the College of Nursing building renovation, the College committed to support a significant portion of the construction costs from its budget. The College also is responsible for the information technology and furnishings for the renovated building. Competitive faculty salaries continue to be an issue for the College of Nursing. Nationally, teaching faculty salaries are not competitive with those in the private sector, especially those in clinical settings. As the College continues to grow and plan for pending faculty retirements, this will be important to the College’s ability to attract the most qualified candidates for teaching and research positions. Financial Accomplishments FY13 was the first full year of the University’s transition to a Responsibility Centered Management (RCM) budgeting model. As part of this process, the College developed a 5-year model for revenue and expenditures. The analysis shows the College of Nursing will continue to be financially solvent given enrollment and funding projections. Financial Summary Compared to FY10, overall revenues and expenditures have increased. This increase is due to two main factors. Due to the new RCM budgeting model, the College now retains all student tuition and fees generated, as well as all indirect cost recoveries. The second factor is a growth in enrollment, coupled with a modest tuition increase. Federal and private grants and contracts remain relatively flat. The Medical University Hospital Authority continued their support for the educational program of $500,000 per year. The modest increase in expenditures relate primarily to salaries to support program growth.

Amella, E. & Daly, J.; Co-Investigators 20% Goals: The goal of this proposal is to address the critical gap in knowledge about the perspectives of adults 60 years and older by qualitatively characterizing the meaning and interpretations about routine EA screening during primary care visits. In short, for adults age 60 years and older receiving care in a primary care setting, what does it mean to be routinely screened for EA during their healthcare care visit? Grounded theory methods using the principles of Symbolic Interactionism (SI) focuses on meaning, social interactions, and interpretive processes and will be used to shed light on the experience of routine EA screening during primary care visits from the perspective of older adults (Blumer, 1969). The aims of this exploratory qualitative study are to: Aim 1: Describe the meaning of routine EA screening during primary care visits from the point of view of adults age 60 years and older. Aim 2: Explain the relation between meanings, interpretations, and actions on the process of routine EA screening within primary care. Aim 3: Explore the acceptability and perceived effects of routine EA screening during primary care visits from the viewpoint of adults age 60 and older. Principal Investigator: Hudson, S.
