Revising Curricula for the New Master's Essentials
The new Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing was endorsed by the AACN membership at the Spring Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on March 21, 2011. These standards reflect current and future nursing practice at the master’s level, which demands expert application of evidence-based practices, quality improvement methods, outcomes measurement, systems knowledge, and leadership skills. To facilitate integration of the Master's Essentials into nursing program curricula, this Webinar will provide an overview of the Essentials and highlight two schools that have begun to implement the Essentials into their curricula. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
Speakers: Julie Sebastian, PhD, RN, FAAN, Dean and Professor, University of Missouri - St. Louis, and Member, Master's Essentials Task Force; Judith Karshmer, PhD, Dean, University of San Francisco; and Brenda Jackson, PhD, Associate Professor, Director MSN Program, University of Texas Health Sciences Center, San Antonio
