This article describes the process that Marquette University’s College of Nursing used to revise its pre-licensure nursing curriculum. More specifically, it explains how faculty discussions, with the Vice President of Mission & Ministry and a faculty member from the Department of Theology, which is centered on the philosophy of St. Ignatius of Loyola, and faculty participation in the Marquette Colleagues Program helped ameliorate the curricular change. The article also addresses how faculty selected the Ignatian Pedagogical Model as the framework for the revised curriculum; and the development of faculty and students for an enhanced understanding and application of Ignatian philosophy, spirituality and the IPP in the classroom and their daily life.
