Annual Student Evaluation of the DNAP Program

Policy Statement:

This policy outlines the annual evaluation process that enables students to comment on the effectiveness of the Graduate Nurse Anesthesiology program, university support, and ancillary services. The policy ensures a student-centered approach in assessing the quality of resources, mentorship, student services, and the overall teaching/learning environment.


This policy applies to all students enrolled in the Graduate Nurse Anesthesiology program.


  1. Annual Evaluation: Students are invited to participate in the annual evaluation process using the "Student Evaluation of the Program Form". The survey aims to assess the students' perspectives about various aspects of the program, university support, and ancillary services.
  2. Rating System: The students are instructed to use a 5-point Likert scale (1 = Strongly Disagree, 5 = Strongly Agree) to evaluate the effectiveness of program delivery, resources, support services, and more.
  3. Data Collection: The completed evaluation forms from all participating students will be collected for analysis.
  4. Data Analysis: The collected data will be systematically analyzed to identify areas of strength and those needing improvement, per the students' perspectives.
  5. Action Planning: Based on the data analysis, an action plan addressing areas of improvement, as identified by the students, will be developed. The plan will outline specific actions, responsibilities, timelines, and resources required.
  6. Implementation and Monitoring: The action plan will be implemented, and the progress will be regularly monitored and adjusted, if necessary, to ensure effectiveness.
  7. Transparency and Communication: The results of the annual student evaluation and the subsequent action plans will be communicated appropriately to students, faculty, program administrators, and other relevant stakeholders.
  8. Continuous Improvement: The annual evaluation process is integral to the program's commitment to continuous improvement and maintains its student-centered approach.

Policy Review:

This policy will be reviewed annually to ensure its continued relevance and effectiveness in capturing the students' perspectives.
