Deciding on the model or concept to use when developing curriculum depends on the type of program the nurse educator plans to build. Here are some questions to consider before developing a nursing curriculum:
What type of curriculum would the nurse educator build for an academic pre-licensure program versus a graduate program, or would the concept be the same?
What does the board of nursing in your state indicate, as needed, in nursing curriculum?
What type of curriculum would the nurse educator build for non-credit professional development or continuing education curriculum?
research different models and concepts of curriculum types: block-based, concept-based, competency-based, and problem-based.
Evaluate the state boards of nursing’s rules and regulations to which you must adhere to for nursing education.
