Curricular Framework and Program Student Learning Outcomes
The Santa Fe (SF) College Nursing Programs are faculty-developed and concept-based. Program student learning outcomes (SLOs) and course SLOs are based on the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Initiative and National League for Nursing (NLN) competencies for ASN nurses. The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) curricular framework, as well as the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) from the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) are also reflected within the curriculum. Concept exemplars are chosen from national, state, and local data to assure that students are taught using examples of current health conditions.
The curricular model, program SLOs, and concepts can be found in the Santa Fe College Nursing Student Handbook.
