Brief Baccalaureate Nursing Curriculum Survey
The survey was conducted in the Fall 2008 by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to provide data regarding the current state of the nation in increasing clinical prevention and population health content in entry-level baccalaureate nursing education programs.
In the fall 2008 the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) conducted an online survey of all schools that have an entry-level baccalaureate nursing degree program. The electronic survey was sent to the dean/director at each school in the country (618) with an entry-level baccalaureate nursing education program. The comprehensive list of schools and types of programs offered was obtained from the AACN Institutional Data System. The dean/director was asked to forward the email and survey link to the individual in the school of nursing who is most knowledgeable about the baccalaureate nursing curriculum. A link to the online survey was provided in the email. A reminder was sent to non-responders after one month.
The overall response rate was 73% (N=451).
