Case Study: Watts College of Nursing

Fall 2019 to Winter 2020


To perform a gap analysis and compliance evaluation of the school's newly written policies and procedures.


Watts College of Nursing (affiliated with Duke University Health System) was recently set up as a standalone institution and began offering a bachelor's degree program. The school asked Blue Icon Advisors to review its new policies and procedures for processing and delivering federal financial aid, as well as consumer information disclosures and reporting setup.


The associate director of business and finance, Brandon Balandra, provided the Blue Icon consultant with the policies and procedures as Microsoft Word documents. Working remotely, the consultant reviewed each document for missing and non-compliant elements and provided feedback using Word's track changes feature.


"The feedback that Blue Icon provided allowed us to prioritize what needed to be addressed (or implemented) prior to awarding any students and gave us clarification on what specific federal regulations pertained to our program," stated Balandra. "I also appreciated them working within the resources I had available for this project."
