Nursing Education
Planning and Delivering the Curriculum


September 2012 | 360 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Nursing Education provides a strategic guide and practical focus to curriculum planning and development. It will help all those involved in the provision of nursing education to understand the issues involved at the different stages of preparing a nursing curriculum which:

  • Meets both professional and academic requirements
  • Integrates theory and practice
  • Enables students to achieve the skills and competencies they need for professional practice
  • Includes different methods of teaching and learning
  • Provides clear guidance for student selection and assessment

Balancing theoretical principles with practical application, and linked closely to the NMC's 2010 standards for pre-registration nursing, Jennifer Boore and Pat Deeny illustrate clearly and accessibly how to develop tailored education programs so that nurse educators and clinicians in practice can enable their students to provide up-to-date and appropriate patient care.

'This book not only includes ideas for curricular content, but it encompasses a focus on leadership in nursing. Transformational outcomes can be developed that are based on education and guided by the curriculum that includes both clinical skills and simulation. The book also offers a list of reasonable assistance for students with disabilities and contains a section on personal support and tutoring of students. The use of technology in nursing education is also a focus of this book and includes a description of the necessary competence in informatics that is currently of great importance for the new graduate nurse. This book is a valuable resource for anyone who teaches nursing at the didactic or clinical level, as well as those involved in curriculum revisions'

Excellant text and very useful in terms of curriculum planning especially for those colleagues who work in the NHS and need to contribute towards curriculum planning.
