NURS 6060: Curriculum Development in Nursing Education (3)

Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0

This course focuses on assessment of the learner, the site, and the program's mission in the development of a curriculum for a nursing education program or a clinical facility. Curriculum theory is used to guide the student in the development of a personal nursing education philosophy. Frameworks and models of curriculum design are critiqued for specific populations. Content selection and sequencing is supported by evidenced-based literature. Course and student outcomes are developed within the context of the total program. The student works to develop a program of study and, within that program, a specific course. NLN's Nurse Educator Competencies are utilized as a standard for curriculum development.
