faculty outcomes:

are identified for the faculty as a group; incorporate expected levels of achievement;

reflect expectations of faculty in their roles and evaluation of faculty performance; are consistent with and contribute to achievement of the program’s mission and goals; andare congruent with institution and program expectations.

Actual faculty outcomes are presented in the aggregate for the faculty as a group, analyzed, and compared to expected outcomes.

Program Response:

Aggregate faculty outcomes are consistent with and contribute to the program’s mission, goals, and expected student outcomes. Faculty contributions are summarized in each year’s annual report, which is available in the Resource Room. The projected faculty outcomes are:

• Faculty commitment to excellence in teaching, research and service

• School commitment to remain in the top ten graduate programs in schools of nursing nationally as ranked by U.S. News and World Report

• School commitment to remain in the top ten schools in research as measured by funding received from the National Institutes of Health

• 100% of full-time faculty are doctorally prepared

• All faculty teaching advance practice clinical courses will be nationally certified and maintain a clinical practice in their area of specialization

The success of the aggregate efforts of the faculty are evidenced by the School maintaining its status as a leading research school of nursing, continued high U.S. News andWorld Report’s ranking in graduate education, our high certification pass rates, and the increasing proportion of our faculty selected as Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing (FAAN) and other specialty organizations. In 2013, the School advanced from 5th to 3rd in National Institutes of Health research dollars awarded. In

2012 we retained our overall ranking of seventh, tied with Duke University, Oregon Health & Sciences University and Yale University. In January 2013, the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing was ranked 9th Overall in U.S. News & World Report's 2013 edition of Best Online Programs rankings. This is just the second year U.S. News and World Report has ranked online programs and the first year the University of Pittsburgh was ranked. Our nurse anesthesia AROC was ranked third (up from fifth in 2007), our pediatric primary care nurse practitioner AROC was ranked fourth (up from sixth in 2007) and adult nurse practitioner AROC was ranked sixth (up from ninth in 2007). In 2012-2013, the specialty certification pass rates for our graduate programs was 100% The proportion of our full-time nursing faculty who are FAANs increased from 20% in 2009 to 28% in 2012. In addition, faculty are fellows in other specialty organizations, (e.g., Hravnak, FCCM, Magdic, FAANP, Rosenzweig, FAONP, Burke, FAHA, and Constantino, FACFE). Faculty are regularly recognized at the highest level of achievement as educators scholars, and researchers, e.g., Chancellor’s Teaching Award (O’Donnell, 2011), the BlackBoard Learn Exemplary Course Award (Dudjak, 2013), and the Sigma Theta Tau International Evidence-Based Practice Award (Mitchell and Puskar, 2013). A complete listing of faculty awards, scholarly achievement, and service can be found in Table 21 below Currently, 56% of full-time faculty have active, funded research projects (50 out of 90). Eighteen full-time faculty (205) serve as Principal Investigator. Currently 96% of our full-time faculty are doctorally prepared. Those who are not are enrolled in either a DNP or PhD program with clearly communicated expectations that they will

complete the program within a defined period of time. Only two faculty teaching clinical courses in our advanced practice areas of concentration are not nationally certified. Both teach in clinical nurse specialist areas of concentration where national certification has not been a requirement for practice in Pennsylvania. One of those individuals is currently preparing to take the certification examination. Our NP faculty meet National Task Force on Quality Nurse Practitioner Education criteria (Appendix 6). Time for faculty practice is built into our workload formula.

instructional effectiveness. At least 75% of students rate their instructor’s

effectiveness “to a considerable” or “very high” degree.
