Internal Factors That Impact the Development and Approval of Curriculum
Internal factors can impact every aspect of the curriculum development process. When developing and seeking approval for staff trainings, academic courses, or entire nursing programs, it is imperative that nurse educators are cognizant of the internal environment of the parent institution or agency. Recognizing internal politics, budgetary and resource allocations, faculty/staff characteristics, and the organizational structure of the setting can help nurse educators better prepare for the development process. In addition, aligning the program to the overarching mission, vision, and philosophy of the institution can help nurse educators undergo a smoother approval process.
In this Discussion, you explore the development and approval processes used in an academic or clinical setting with which you are familiar. You then determine how internal factors may have impacted these processes.
