Competencies of Nurse Educators in Curriculum Design: A Delphi Study Milena Staykova, Melissa Marszalek, Shanice Vennable, Dustin Whitaker
Objectives Upon completion the participants in this session will be able to: Validate the need of competencies for nursing educators in charge of curriculum design. Describe the steps in a Delphi Study. Evaluate the outcomes of a research study on competencies of nursing educators in curriculum design Network with colleagues
Literature Review “Nurse educators who practice in academic settings also must have knowledge and skill in curriculum development, assessment of program outcomes, and being an effective member of an academic community, among other things. (NLN, 2002, para. 11) “The appropriate educational preparation for a nurse educator has been debated for many years” (SREB, 2002, p. 2) “The nurse educator competencies are important because the ability — or lack of ability — can affect the accomplishments of the faculty and students (Krisman-Scott, 1998, p. 318).
Definitions Competence is “the application of knowledge and interpersonal decision making, and psychomotor skills in the performance of a task or implementation of a role” (NLN, 2007, para. 30). In curriculum design, the concept of competence defines the tasks of developing curricula. Competency is “a principle of professional practice that identifies the expectations required for the safe and effective performance of a task or implementation of a role” (NLN, 2007, para. 31). In curriculum design, the concept of competency describes the practice and expectations of developing effective curricula.
