ASN Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the ASN program, students will be able to do the following:

1. The student will design and implement individualized patient centered care.

2. The student will promote collaborative clinical decision making with the inter-professional teams through implementation of effective communication skills.

3. The student will make clinical decisions substantiated with evidence that integrates knowledge of nursing science to provide competent care. 

4. The student will incorporate patient safety principles into the plan of care for all individuals.

5. The student will use technology to document, manage knowledge, and support decision making.


Program outcomes are developed as performance indicators to provide evidence that the ASN program is meeting the mission and goals established by the nursing program. The Program outcomes are measured by NCLEX pass rates, program completion, and job placement. The ASN program utilizes the ACEN Standards and Criteria (2017 edition) to demonstrate evidence of achievement in meeting the program outcomes.

The program outcomes include the following:

Outcome 1:  The Snow College NCLEX-RN pass rates for the ASN program will meet or exceed 80% for all first-time test-takers.

Outcome 2:  A minimum of 80 percent of students will graduate from the Snow College  ASN program 1½ times the length of the program.

Outcome 3:  At least 80% of program graduates will be employed within six to twelve months after graduation.
