Survey of Employers of Graduates

Administered: Spring semester

Target Population: Known employers of MS, PhD and DNP graduates

This survey is sent by mail to employers of master’s, PhD and DNP graduates to evaluate their performance. The survey asks the employer to rate the graduate on their performance of essential nursing skills. In addition the survey invites employers to discuss area(s) of practice that graduates may have needed more focus in their academic program, and other strengths and weaknesses of graduates. A summary report is written every year and presented to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.
