Foundations of Nursing Education

C358 (TS: YQT2) Foundations of Nursing Education
[3 CUs]
I
Course Description: This course examines the historical, theoretical, and contemporary issues of
nursing education. Student will explore emerging trends in curriculum development and
evaluation. Ethical, legal, and regulatory issues related to nursing education will be examined.
Performance Assessment: Goal is to design nursing curricula, changing a fictional community
college’s nursing program from and ADN progam to BSN. You are chair of committee to create
new curricula. Support choices by various components (e.g., learning theory, program outcomes,
accreditation etc). You will create a report to ‘osubmit” to the board of directors. Expect 15-30
pages.
Tips. Tricks. & Resources:
1) Definitely have PA directions on hand as read and bookmark COS
2) Bloom’s Taxonomy knowledge is critical to complete assessment
3) Material in COS is ample for PA – with info on RWJ and QSEN etc.
4) May find “Professional Nursing Standards” useful as well
5) When formatting, create a blank table of contents, just as a page holder. Fill in ‘ headers and pagination at end oftask.
6) Modest community. Chatter has most information. Chatter involvement is
expected, but not required.

Introduction:
As a nurse educator, you may be expected to lead and participate in the development and revision of
nursing programs. Therefore, it is essential that you have the competencies to analyze internal and
external factors and trends that impact the design and delivery of nursing curricula. You must also be able
to use a variety of learning theories to guide the development of nursing curriculum and integrate relevant
educational philosophies, modalities, and assessments to achieve identified program outcomes. The clear
articulation of the ethical standards and desired learner outcomes to stakeholders will be necessary for
achieving the requirements of state and national regulatory and accrediting agencies.
Scenario:
At Hartford Community College, the executive team has decided to change the current two-year associate
degree nursing program to a four-year bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program. As the director of
allied health programs, you have been asked to chair the nursing curriculum committee, which is charged
with fully designing the new BSN program. Your position gives you access to societal, economic, and
institutional trends that are current in the field of nursing education. Taking these items into consideration,
your committee has been tasked with gathering information and presenting it for the new BSN program.
You are to ensure the new BSN program is consistent with state and national professional standards and
guidelines. You will be creating a report to take to the board of directors for approval.
Requirements:
A. Create a report that contains the following components:
. table of contents
. components identified in aspects B through K
B. Justify the change from an associate degree nursing program to a BSN program.
Note: Please include one or two sentences to serve as a brief introduction to the justification for the
change from an associate degree nursing program to a BSN program. Details of the justification will be
amplified in items 81 and 82.
