Why WIDS for Nursing Programs
There are many aspects to a well-developed nursing program. Conceptual frameworks, program philosophy, outcomes, courses, clinical experiences and linked nursing standards are all necessary components to your curriculum. But, how do you keep it all straight? You may have all of the documentation, but where is it housed and is it accreditation-ready? How do you account for continuous improvement of student learning?
WIDS is a powerful online software supporting the design, alignment, and management of your nursing curriculum.
