ASU's Associate Degree RN Program Gets Warning

Angelo State University's Registered Nurse pass rate plummeted in 2011.

When did Dr. Rallo arrive and ASU adopt its grow at all costs model?

Our goal is to grow to 10,000 students by 2020. We also want to strengthen the three programs of distinction (nursing, agriculture and teacher education) and other academic programs.

ASU's declining RN pass rate resulted in a warning from the Texas Board of Nursing.  Will this information make the Second and final monitoring report submitted to SACS, due April 15

How interesting. The numbers in the TTUS report show a much rosier picture for the 2011 pass rate of ASU nursing students - unless I'm reading it wrong.

See page 20:

My guess is ASU parsed the data along the lines of continuing RN training programs, omitting stats associated with those slated for extinction.

I found it odd the target went down from 2011 to 2012. Who does when "performance improved"?

Thanks for the reference. Pictures help tell the story.
