NURS 6330 - Curriculum Development, Assessment, and Evaluation


(3 sem. cr.) A wide array of factors, including social, economic, regulatory, and technological transformations, impact the current educational environment. Therefore, nursing education curricula must be relevant and meet the health and nursing needs of society. Students in this course learn about curriculum development and the many processes that contribute to it. They explore the philosophical foundations of curriculum development; curriculum components; societal, professional, and educational trends; frameworks, competencies, and outcomes; organizational constraints; and selection of learning activities. Students also define the processes of curriculum assessment and evaluation in the context of program, course, and student outcomes. They apply course concepts and theory to the development of a syllabus or course outline. Through this course, students work toward attaining the skills required to develop curricula that address the nursing needs of society, support standards of practice, and prepare graduates for practice in diverse settings.
