Nursing Program Plan of Correction
What is a Plan of Correction (POC)?
A POC is a written report a nursing program prepares showing how it will address the deficient standards identified in law.
The Washinton State Board Nursing (WABON) may request a POC if one of the following:
- The program receives a statement of deficiencies.
- The program fails to maintain an annual pass rate of 80 percent.
How to submit a POC
Use the Plan of Correction (POC) template and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When filling out the POC
- State the WAC deficiency.
- Identify actions taken to correct WAC deficiency.
- Include the date of planned implementation.
- Provide evidence to show the WAC deficiency has been corrected.
What to expect after submitting a POC
The Nursing Program Approval Panel (NPAP) reviews the Plan of Correction (POC).
The NPAP may choose to accept or reject the POC.
- If the NPAP rejects the POC, they will request clarifying information.
- The NPAP may ask WABON staff to do a program site visit.
