At present, higher education institutions are facing many social changes. The organization must adjust itself to keep pace with changes in order to improve the quality of the organization. The administrators must develop quality management plans to achieve the goal of educational excellence. This is the challenge of nursing education administrators; to build confidence of the society regarding graduate quality, including increasing the opportunity to compete in the quality of nursing graduates.

The “Par ADVICE” quality management process consists of 4 participation processeses which are 1) Participation in decision making, 2) Participation in implementation and responsibility 3) Participation in evaluation and development and 4) Participation in benefits resulting from the outcomes achieved, plused 5 steps of management process (ADVICE) including Analysis of organization and aims of quality, Design of quality management plan, Vision driving to actions based on participatory process, Implementation and Continually learning within quality culture, and Evaluation. The Par ADVICE model has the advantage of being a participatory management model, from the participation of personnel in its planning to their participation in the benefits of the model, with a focus on both personnel and students. There is a starting point from the analyses of goals which leads to the design of a quality management plan in response to the educational outcomes and to challenge the organizations to develop results beyond the standard.
