Abstract

目的调查我国高等中医院校本科护理学专业课程设置情况,分析可能影响课程设置的因素,为促进高等中医院校本科护理学专业课程体系改革提供依据。


方法: 收集我国19所高等中医院校本科护理学专业课程设置的相关资料,采用比较研究法获取其特征与不足,并分析可能的影响因素。


结果19所高等中医院校护理学专业所有课程(2815.8±432.9)学时,专业基础课程(787.4±211.8)学时,专业课程(717.0±189.8)学时,人文素养课程(238.7±73.8)学时,中医相关课程(289.9±130.9)学时。我国高等中医院校本科护理学专业的课程设置已初步形成体系,但存在着中医护理特色不够突出、人文素养课程比例偏小及课程类型构成欠佳等问题。影响课程设置的因素是多方面的,包括师资队伍、教材建设、市场需求及中医护理学科体系定位等。
结论我国高等中医院校本科护理学专业课程设置有待进一步完善。护理教育者应认识影响课程设置的因素,采取具有针对性的措施,构建科学、合理及可持续发展的课程体系。 


Objective: To investigate the current nursing curriculum design of undergraduate in universities of Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) as well as the potential influencing factors. 


Methods: 
A comparative study design was used. 


Results: Data of nursing curriculum design in 19 universities of Traditional Chinese Medicine were retrieved for analysis. The total hours of nursing curriculum of undergraduate were 2815.8±432.9;professional foundation courses were 787.4±211.8;professional courses were 717.0±189.8;courses about humanistic quality were 238.7±73.8;and courses about TCM were 289.9±130.9. The results showed that the current nursing curriculum design in universities of Traditional Chinese Medicine had already found a primary model. But some weakness can still be found:①an unobvious teaching characteristic of traditional nursing science;②a weakness of courses about humanistic quality; ③an imperfect structure of course type. And the potential influencing factors might be the unreasonable teaching stuff structure,inconsistency of teaching materials,human resource market,and the unclear Traditional Chinese Nursing orientation. 


Conclusion: Problems and weaknesses can be found in current nursing curriculum design of undergraduate in universities of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nursing educators should take measures to tackle with these points and built a more scientific and reasonable structure of curriculum design
