Nurse Educ. Jul-Aug 1997;22(4):25-31. doi: 10.1097/00006223-199707000-00011.


To evaluate the education of undergraduate nursing students in drug administration, the faculty of La Salle University School of Nursing structured a program evaluation plan using a curriculum map. Faculty track the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills involved in drug administration. For example, all clinical nursing courses and the pharmacology course contain dosage and intravenous solution calculations in didactic material and tests. Program evaluation of the outcomes of medication administration education is continuous throughout the curriculum.
