In this curriculum and instructional design case, Nancy, an instructor at the University of the Philippines Manila School of Health Sciences (SHS) is deciding if a new course on Nursing Informatics would be beneficial to the future nursing students of the school, given the school’s unique mandate. SHS opened in 1976 as an experimental school, tagged as “the barefoot doctors program of the Philippines.” To combat the healthcare brain drain and dearth of doctors in rural areas, SHS developed an innovative stepladder curriculum. Students learn about the school’s revolutionary curriculum as they evaluate whether a nursing informatics course would fit into it.
