E-BOOK DESCRIPTION
The fourth edition of Curriculum Development in Nursing Education is once again written for all those engaged in developing, implementing, and evaluating new curricula, or refreshing existing curricula, in nursing education. Experienced or recently appointed nursing faculty, graduate students, teaching assistants, and those who aspire to become nurse educators will find something of value that they can consider or apply. The term curriculum is meant to convey the totality of philosophical approaches, design, courses, teaching-learning and evaluation strategies, interactions, learning climate, human and physical resources, and curricular policies. The premise that a curriculum should be evidence-informed, context-relevant, and unified continues in this Fourth Edition. Faculty development, ongoing appraisal, and scholarship remain core processes of curriculum work in the model presented. Chapter headings, subheadings, and configurations have remained relatively unchanged. However, more current nursing education ideas, perspectives, and applications have been included throughout. Chapter goals have been replaced with questions to help focus readers’ attention. Some new tables and figures have been added, and those retained from the Third Edition have been updated and/or modified to enhance clarity. A summary, descriptions of faculty development, ongoing appraisal, and scholarship activities relevant to the chapter topic, synthesis activities that comprise a hypothetical case with questions and additional questions for readers’ consideration in their own setting, and chapter references are part of all chapters except the first. All cases were newly developed for this edition of the book. The cases and accompanying questions can be used as starting points for faculty development conversations or as learning activities for graduate classes.

Chapter 1, Creation of an Evidence-Informed, Context-Relevant, Unified Curriculum, begins with definitions of curriculum generally. Then, introduced and elaborated upon is the idea that a curriculum must be informed by evidence about students, nursing education and practice, and clients; relevant to its context; and unified, wherein the components are logically, visibly, and consistently related to the premises of the curriculum. The Model of Evidence-Informed, Context-Relevant, Unified Curriculum Development is overviewed in Chapter 1. The model has been modified slightly in this edition to differentiate between formative and summative evaluation.
