dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to determine whether participationin major curriculum revision was perceived as a job enriching experience by nurse educators in National League for Nursing accredited baccalaureate nursing programs in the Midwest Alliance in Nursing geographic area. Degree of participation was evaluated in relationship to perceived enrichment. Age and length of service were moderating variables. The Job Diagnostic Survey was the instrument utilized for sampling the perceptions of respondents about job enrichment.FindingsThe first three findings pertain to comparisons between faculty participating in curriculum revision and faculty not participating in curriculum revision, while the final two pertain to amount of participation in curriculum revision.1. Faculty in nursing programs undergoing no major curriculum revision perceived the job as more enriched than faculty undergoing major curriculum revision. However, when age and length of service were controlled, such differences were no longer observed.2. Age was not observed as a significant factor in undergoing major curriculum revision.3. Faculties with shorter mean lengths of service and fewer tenured faculty members were involved in major curriculum revision. 4. Degree of participation in curriculum revision was not found to be correlated with either age or length of service of faculty members. Increases in perceived job enrichment were found to accompany increased participation in curriculum revision. However, when age and length of service were controlled, the relationship disappeared.ConclusionsThe following conclusions were drawn for the population of the study:1. Major curriculum revision is not perceived as a job enriching experience for nursing faculty.2. Age of faculty is not a predictor of degree of involvementin major curriculum revision.3. Faculty with shorter length of service are more likely tobe involved in curriculum revision.4. Age or length of service are not factors in predicting degreeof participation in major curriculum revision.5. Job enrichment does not increase with amount of participation when age and experience are held constant. en_US
