Time Out! QSENizing the Curriculum Req ...

This strategy can be used to educate faculty and/or students. (1) Hand each faculty member and/or student Attachment #1: Worksheet and QSEN KSAs for Informatics. (2) Run video (Attachment #2).

No project evokes such a feeling of dread among nurse educators as a curriculum review – except maybe an accreditation self-study! After our program’s last accreditation site visit, it became apparent that our curriculum was a little dusty. Our mission, philosophy, and program objectives were just words on a page. They didn’t drive our daily work with our students.           Many of our faculty had never participated in a curriculum review. We weren’t even sure where to start. We were confident that we already had a solidly founded and successful program, as evidenced by our accreditation status, NCLEX pass rates, graduate/employer feedback, and graduate employment rates. We didn’t want to abandon all the elements that made our program strong, but we still saw the need to modernize. Our faculty was empowered to better define our program objectives. Rather...
