Education for nurses and allied health professionals is being radically overhauled both in the UK and overseas. "Curriculum Development in Nursing" offers nurse educators a single text that covers curriculum development processes, and highlights case study examples of innovation in approaches to nurse education. The book has been written by internationally well-known authors based in South Africa, who take a truly international perspective looking at education in the UK, Europe and the US, as well in Africa and the Middle East. This book will be an essential guide to curriculum development and will be an invaluable resource for nurse educators and postgraduate nursing students internationally.
