This poster features the development and use of a rubric for program assessment. The Nursing PhD program at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM) developed program learning outcomes via best practices of doctoral programs and national documents featuring hallmarks of PhD in Nursing education. The core competencies for Nursing PhD students were developed from the program learning outcomes. This poster profiles the development of three rubrics based on the program learning outcomes and core competencies for the dissertation defense, dissertation proposal defense and the student comprehensive examination. The decision/action process undertaken by the PhD curriculum committee is also illustrated.
