How Do We Measure Up? RN to BSN Option Earns Certification Marks from Quality Matters Chamberlain University (?) | Jan 18, 2018 Chamberlain’s RN to BSN Degree Completion Option has been putting itself to the test – all with the goal of increasing student success. Starting in 2013, the program has been pursuing certification by Quality Matters (QM) – a non-profit, nationally recognized quality assurance organization that aims to improve and certify the design of online and blended courses. The QM certification process includes a rigorous peer review of all of our policies, resources and support services for students, plus the identification of areas for improvement. To date, four courses in the program have earned QM certification, and four more are in process. In addition, the RN to BSN option as a whole has achieved certification in the areas of Online Learner Support and Online Teaching Support – the only nursing program in the country to have done so. “Adult learners expect clarity and precision in their learning environment,” explained Jill Price, PhD, MSN, RN, director of graduate programs at Chamberlain. “Certification from QM is part of our ongoing commitment to providing students with the support they need to be successful in their program of study. The goal is to see where we’re doing well and where we can still improve.” Results so far have included insights and recommendations for how to increase student engagement and achievement and to promote faculty excellence and build on areas of faculty success.
