Competency 4 – Participate in Curriculum Design and Evaluation of Program

Outcomes

Nurse educators are responsible for formulating program outcomes and designing curriculathat reflect contemporary health care trends and prepare graduates to function effectively inthe health care environment. To participate effectively in curriculum design and evaluationof program outcomes, the nurse educator:Ensures that the curriculum reflects institutional philosophy and mission, currentnursing and health care trends, and community and societal needs so as to preparegraduates for practice in a complex, dynamic, multicultural health care environment.
·       Under the direction of the Curriculum Chair of the school of nursing who developed a curricular blueprint, I serve on the faculty curriculum committee which recognizes and ensures the institutional philosophy and mission, current nursing and health care trends, and community and societal needs are reflected throughout the course objectives and ultimately the program objectives.
 ·       Additionally , I serve as the nursing college representative to the University Curriculum Committee where institutional philosophy is reinforced and members from this committee teach the faculty in their colleges relative to the philosophical threads which must be reflected in that schools’ local curriculum. 
  • Demonstrates knowledge of curriculum development including identifying program outcomes, developing competency statements, writing learning objectives, and selecting appropriate learning activities and evaluation strategies.
  ·       Under the direction of the curriculum committee, I have developed many courses where program outcomes, competency statements, learning objectives along with learning activities and evaluation strategies are written.  I serve on the University Curriculum committee which oversees the development of new courses and programs, modifies existing courses and programs while approving course outlines and new program applications.

 Below some excerpts from a class I developed on Advanced Health Care and Politics:

Lesson plans include class objectives driven by course objectives which are driven by program objectives.  All courses must have “buzz” words threaded thru which articulate the overall framework.
