GCU NUR647E Week 4 Discussion (dq1+dq2) Latest NUR647E Nursing Education Seminar 1 Week 4 Discussion
DQ1 When you review various curricular plans, you may see a variety of terms. Some
programs use the term “program outcomes” while others use the term
“terminal objectives” for those actions that the student is expected
to accomplish upon graduation. The same is true for individual courses. Some
programs call the knowledge and skills that a student should master by the end
of the course “course outcomes” while others use the term “course
objectives.” All of the terms have a specified definition in literature
and according to accreditation agencies.
What are the similarities and differences between the terms according to the literature and to accrediting
agencies? Select a program or course (other than GCU) and critique their use of
these terms. Do they use them in a manner consistent with the literature and/or
accreditation agencies or do they use them differently? Include your review of
the program in your response to this discussion question. Support your response
with literature. Your critique could be at the program level or at the course
level. You do not need to do both levels.
DQ2 What would be important for you to know about the program’s philosophy, mission, and
goals if you were interviewing for a position at that university? Why? Support
your response with literature.
