The Nursing Program follows up with graduates at 6-month intervals to obtain information related to their experience in new nursing practice and their ability to meet new graduate expectations. The program would like graduates to fill in the following survey and return to the program director.
In addition to obtaining information from alumni, the program also seeks feedback and evaluation from community partners and clinical agencies who hire our graduates. We seek this information through Alumni Surveys and through Advisory Committee Meetings.
