GSC’s Office of Institutional Assessment and Planning provides data and other types of information about the College to support external reporting, internal decision-making and planning, and overall institutional effectiveness. This section contains information that the College is required to disclose to any potential students, as well as additional information GSC chooses to offer in order to provide context for someone potentially making the decision to enroll. Specifically, this section includes data regarding diversity, retention, graduation, placement, and graduate/employer satisfaction.

Retention Outcomes: IPEDS

GSC is required by federal regulations to make available to current and prospective students the retention rate of certificate- or degree-seeking first-time, undergraduate students a reported to IPEDS. IPEDS calculates retention based on the first-time, full-time students in the highest degree conferred; however, the BSN program is a post-licensure completion program meaning that all students in the BSN are excluded from the IPEDS formula since they have already graduated from an associate’s program and become licensed RNs.

IPEDS: First-Time Student Fall 2013 Cohort Retention Rates*
Full-time, first-time Cohort Retention
First-time, full-time Fall 2013 Cohort 0
Exclusions from Cohort 0
Adjusted Cohort 0
Students from Fall 2013 Cohort still enrolled or completed as of Fall 2014 0
Full-time, first-time Fall 2012 Cohort retention rate 0%

*IPEDS calculates retention based on degree-seeking, first-time undergraduates. The BSN's retention rate according to this formula will be 0% since the BSN is a completion program for those who are already RNs.

Retention Outcomes: All Students

In order to meet the information needs of current and potential students, GSC also makes available the retention rate for each program. This information depicts all students who entered in the fall of the previous year and who returned and were enrolled effective as of October 15, 2014.

Graduation Rates

The cohort of an institution includes all first-time full-time degree or certificate-seeking undergraduate students that begin in the stated cohort year. Please note that the values for the BSN are 0 because the BSN’s first cohort did not graduate until May 2014.

Evidence of Achievement

Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) requires nursing programs to demonstrate evidence of achievement in meeting program outcomes using a series of metrics and to share findings with various communities of interest. The chart below represents key measurements for the AASN and BSN programs, where applicable, as well as the same information for the College’s Associate Degree in Health Science.

*Graduate and Employer Satisfaction Rates reflect results the questions regarding overall satisfaction.
**Placement rates reflect the number of graduates successfully employed in nursing or a nursing related field within one year of their graduation date. Graduates are surveyed between 6-12 months of graduation regarding their employment status.
†ASHS placement information will be available in early 2016.
