Right after the Agribusiness Magister Department (Prodi) managed to maintain their A accreditation from the Higher Education National Accreditation Board (BAN-PT) for the 2019-2024 period, it’s time for Nursing D3 Department Faculty of Health Sciences (FIKES) University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) that achieve A (very good) accreditation.
“Our competency test emulating the national standard. Started from the Tryout test, OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) test and so on. In the competency test, our average score reaching above 85% in every year. That makes us optimistic in achieving an A accreditation” said Reni Ilmiasih, S.Kep., Ns., M.Kep., Sp. Kep.An.
Looking at the performance and the quality that maximally showed, an A accreditation with 367 points was given to D3 Nursing UMM Prodi based on the Plenary Accreditation Assembly No. 009/LAM-PTKes/BAAkr/IX/2019 on 29 September 2019. Previously, this prodi in the 2014-2019 period only accredited with B score.
“We have to prepare everything so that quality is the main issue. For a long time, we have prepared teams with good quality. So that the documents were perfectly arranged, then we will be familiar in making score and making the students more competent,” said Reni
In addition to improving the quality of education, this prodi keeps optimizing the accreditation guidance from UMM accreditation office. “So we try to report everything as detail as possible. We already compared it with the Office of Accreditation Management and Control (KPPA). Which means that our preparations were perfect,” said Reni (14/10).
After achieving an A accreditation, Reni feels the Prodi that she led will have bigger responsibility. Right now, the main challenge and the output were in the field of career. “Because most of profession were prioritizing S1, so we have to prepare the mobility for the world of work,” She said. (joh)
