School of Nursing Program Advisory Committee
The School of Nursing Program Advisory Committee (PAC) is a lay committee appointed to review the established curricula of the program, instructional-related program materials, equipment and facilities, and student achievement outcomes as a means to provide the College with an external review of its programs. The PAC advises, assists, supports, and advocates and advocates for the nursing program as part of its overall plan for improvement and increased effectiveness of the program it serves. A PAC has no legislative, administrative, or programmatic authority and is advisory only.
