Outcomes of a concept-based curriculum

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This article describes the outcomes of a curriculum change in a prelicensure diploma registered nursing program. Program outcomes including performance on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), retention and graduation rates, and program satisfaction were compared before and after the change to a concept-based curriculum. Although this study was undertaken in 1 small program, and there are other factors that potentially contribute to the outcomes, the results of this curricular change were positive and support the use of a concept-based curriculum. © 2014 National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing.
