Abstract

The purpose of this ethnographic study was to elicit data from nurse educators in Newfoundland concerning their knowledge of instructional development and to determine how nurse educators in Newfoundland plan instruction. The study was a continuation of previous studies carried out in the school system in Newfoundland. Gallant (1989), Tobin (1989), Thomey (1991), and Graham (1991) studied primary and elementary teachers, high school teachers, and teacher-librarians and determined that the groups studied did not have a comprehensive knowledge of and competency in instructional development. -- This study was executed from the winter of 1993 to the summer of 1993 using semi-structured interviews. All interviews permitted open responses and the interviews were respondent-driven. The respondents consisted of one nurse educator from each of the five provincial schools of nursing. -- Results of the study indicated that the nurse educators who participated in the study have a functional knowledge of instructional development. They plan instruction systematically.
