Curriculum Development in Nursing Education, Second Edition continues its dedication to the advancement of nursing education, and in particular, to the ongoing development of relevant yet dynamic nursing education curricula. This Second Edition offers current, accessible, and comprehensive tips and tools and incorporates a balance of theoretical perspectives and practical applications. The Second Edition has been completely revised and updated and includes an expanded focus on developing a context-relevant curriculum. A major determinant in any nursing education curriculum is the context in which the curriculum is developed and offered. This context is the professional, societal, health care, and educational situations to which the curriculum must respond, and is what makes each school’s curriculum unique. Curriculum Development in Nursing Education helps nurse educators create a program of study that will meet the contextual needs of their individual setting. What’s New: Expanded focus on developing a context-relevant curriculum New sections on educational technologies, distributed learning, and curriculum evaluation. New chapters on preparing for external program review, building a curriculum, and evaluation of a curriculum.
