An evaluation of the baccalaureate-nursing program within the (MOPH), Thailand

, : An evaluation of the baccalaureate-nursing program within the (MOPH), Thailand. Nurse Education Today 22(8): 641-647

This research study was designed to evaluate the baccalaureate-nursing curricula undertaken in the nursing colleges under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), Thailand. A stakeholder approach was used to incorporate mixed methods of data collection and models of evaluation within the research framework. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches were used. Newly registered nurses and their colleagues were generally positive about the course outcomes. However, qualitative data demonstrate a need to focus more on the development of abilities related to life-long learning and critical thinking. The findings suggest challenges in achieving program outcomes attributed to the feasibility of implementation strategies. Concepts in the curriculum plan are not fully translated into practice. A number of factors have a major impact on the actual program implementation or course organisation and teaching/learning processes. There is evidence of competing or conflicting ideologies about nursing practice and education. Findings suggest that the preferable educational models for contemporary and future nursing education are process rather than content-based. It is challenging to develop ways of accommodating the more desirable professional nursing and educational approaches within the context of Thailand and MOPH nursing education policies where resources are limited and the maintenance of Thai culture is of paramount importance.
