Consider the following scenario:
Linda has been a nurse educator at LiveWell Medical Center for about 3 years. Since taking over the position, she has received many accolades for the new evidence-based practices she has shared in nurse trainings. Linda is now looking to turn her attention to patient education. She hopes to initiate bimonthly sessions that will help current and recently discharged patients to better manage their health and/or cope with difficult health issues. At Linda’s next meeting with LiveWell’s board of trustees, she confidently shares her proposal for this new program. At once, she is taken aback at their dismissive responses. “That sounds great Linda, but we simply do not have time to implement something of that caliber here. And how do you know if patients would even be interested in such a service?”
Over the next hour, Linda contemplates these comments and realizes that, despite her best intentions, there was some truth to their remarks. Linda had initially been inspired to create this program after reading about a large rehabilitation center in San Antonio, Texas. The center had revolutionized their outpatient process, helping to demonstrate strong commitment to the community. Though it worked well in San Antonio, Linda had not conducted any preliminary research to learn if it could be effective in their small town of Pinedale, Wyoming.
What external factors should Linda have investigated before trying to develop such a program? In addition, how could these factors continue to impact her program if the LiveWell board of trustees approves her idea?
· Review this week’s readings, specifically Chapter 6, “External Frame Factors,” in the Keating text and Chapter 5, “Forces and Issues Influencing Curriculum Development,” in the Billings course text. Reflect on the various external factors that can impact the way curriculum is developed, assessed, and evaluated. Then, consider whether certain factors influence institutions (academic settings) more or less than they do agencies (clinical settings).
· Select one external factor from the following list to further explore for your Discussion posting:
· Consider how this factor might impact curriculum development, assessment, and evaluation in your own academic or clinical setting or in one with which you are familiar. In addition, conduct research to explore how this factor might impact nursing education as a whole.
Note: Although accreditation is considered an important external factor, it is not listed as a factor for this week’s Discussion, as it will be the focus for next week’s Discussion.
Questions to be addressed in my paper:
1. A description of the external factor you selected.
2. Explain how this factor might impact curriculum development, assessment, and evaluation in an academic or clinical setting with which you are familiar.
3. Share at least one authentic insight into how this factor might also impact nursing education as a whole.
1) 1-2 pages (addressing the 3 questions above excluding the title page and reference page).
2) Kindly follow APA format for the citation and references! References should be between the period of 2011 and 2016. Please utilize the references at least three below as much as possible and the rest from yours.
3) Make headings for each question.

Broad considerations are given, as well as strategies nurse educators can use to analyze current social contexts to align nursing curricula to future global trends.
