Nursing education evaluation of history and its future evolution.

1.With the exception of a few years in the early 1990s, the shortage of nurses to provide care in hospitals has been a chronic problem with intermittent acute exacerbation since the 1930s. What effects at both macro level (e.g. public opinion, social policy) and micro level (e.g. individual schools, courses) has this had on nursing education? Has the net balance of positive and negative effects been beneficial for nursing education? Why?
·2. Debate the wisdom and feasibility of setting the master's degree as the minimum marker for the professional segment of the nursing continuum. Given the 20/20 hindsight gained from the debacle of the 1965 Position Paper, how would you advise national nursing organizations to go about changing this definition, if it were to be changed?
·3. Analyze how the triangulation of subject, setting, and student characteristics serve to frame curriculum planning and development.
·4. Conduct a literature search on the history and evolution of nursing curricula. Summarize the key aspects of the scholarly article, and speculate on how past and present events will frame the future.
