In a statewide study of nurse educators from nationally accredited ADN programs, 42 of 109 baccalaureate outcomes were reported met in their programs. Those outcomes clustered in 3 areas: information management and application of technology, professionalism and professional values, and generalist nursing practice. The 67 outcomes that were not met were in the categories of liberal education, organizational and systems leadership, evidence-based practice, healthcare policy, finance and regulatory environments, interprofessional collaboration, and population health. This research provides important evidence from which to construct an outcomes-based associate degree to baccalaureate curriculum.
