Design a Better Student Experience

User/Customer Experience

Through collaboration with Indiana University School of Nursing (IUSON), Collabo developed and delivered an in-depth understanding of the current and ideal states of the student experience for the Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. From this understanding, we were able to then rethink and reshape both physical supporting materials along with overall student touchpoints within the 2-year online program.

IUSON partnered with Collabo to better understand the current student experience for their newly developed, online DNP program. Through rapid, participatory design research engagements, Collabo connected with stakeholders from all levels of the DNP program—from alumni to professors to administrators and college deans—in order to develop a comprehensive, 2-year student journey map. Based off of actual student and user experiences, this map currently serves as the focal point for strategic planning within the DNP program.

Additionally, from this understanding of the DNP service-flow, Collabo was able to aid IUSON with redesigning their DNP student orientation packet, which now prioritizes new-student information into to manageable and actionable tasks further enhancing the student experience from acceptance through graduation.
