CURRICULUM MATERIALS

We have developed and tested an English-medium BSN curriculum. All the courses are based on international standard content, adapted for low-resource settings and regional population health issues such as maternal-child health and primary care. The courses are specially designed to bridge common gaps in foundational skills and problem-solving.

Our BSN Open Educational Resource (OER) provides an integrated package that includes: Student Learning Resources, Classroom Resources for Educators and Program Resources (See Figure Below). This package includes not only classroom lectures (mostly PowerPoint presentations), but also student and teacher references, assignments and exams, checklists for clinical practice, and administrative policies. Everything is digitized (MS-Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and can be downloaded via the internet.

We have not yet loaded all the courses into the repository. Sample courses are now available. We will supplement these and add more courses as feasible. You can see our standard course blueprint here This illustrates the organization of material for each course.

To get access to the courses, please 
write to us.  We will send you a link to a website where you can view and download the material for use under the Creative Commons license.
