review is one way of monitoring the quality of a programme of
study and promoting the growth of nursing education. The Faculty
of Nursing at the Jordan University of Science and Technology
(JUST) demonstrated its professional maturity by participating
in an international collaborative project with the University of
Windsor in Canada, to review its baccalaureate programmes. This
article outlines the rationale for undertaking a programme
review and discusses key principles for inclusion in the
development of such a process. It highlights some strategies for
success, and suggests ways in which programmes can benefit from
reviews and evaluations. This process has the potential to be
used as a prototype for future reviews.
