Abstract:   (1989 Views)

Background and Aims: Nursing education and training of doctoral students are vital, because they are expected to be a factor for the Advancement of Science in Nursing, professional advisors and also training future researchers. The aim of this study is comparesion of nursing education system in Iran with the Johns Hopkins University

Methods: This descriptive-comparative study was carried out in 2016. In order to compare components of nursing PhD program curriculum in Iran and JOHN HOPKINS University, data were collected by searching the internet with using of databases Persian and English and compared using Bereday’s four-stage model: description, interpretation, juxta position and comparison.

Results: If we want to compare Nursing education at Johns Hopkins School and Iran, from beginning of the modern nursing education, also the establishment of all nursing steps from licence to PhD, Johns Hopkins School was done earlier than Iran. Entrance to PhD, without passing the test and student's criteria admission, is imposed independently by the university in America. Educational plans are more various, and students have the ability to choose the course units. Some of the units are optional and they are selected by the appropriateness of student's need, thesis title and supervisor's recommendation. Iran's Nursing Doctoral philosophy is fit with the culture and beliefs of the Muslim community.

Conclusions: In Johns Hopkins a significant relationship exists between the mission and goals of the curriculum. Community's problems and needs are covered with locating the lessons. Educational planners should be more careful in communicating the goals and structure of teaching.

Keywords: Comparative Study, Curriculum, Bereday’s Model, Iran, PhD in Nursing, John Hopkins University’s Curriculum
