Introduction: Evaluation in higher education has been the focus of curriculum development in recent decades to improve the quality of curricula. Comparing existing programs with similar programs at the world's top universities with a comparative approach is one of the methods used in evaluating programs. The purpose of this study was to compare the Master of Nursing Management curriculum in Iran with UC Davis University of California.
Methods: This descriptive-comparative study was carried out in 2018, data were collected by searching the internet with the key words of nursing, nursing education, curriculum, California UC Davis and Iran, and using Bereday’s four-stage model: description, interpretation, juxta position and comparison were analyzed.
Results: Both programs showed similar approaches to theoretical and clinical teaching, except that peer learning, distance learning, and preceptorship were found at Yves Davis University. The job duties mentioned for graduates in the MA and US Davis Master's Degree Programs also indicate that the "Management- Leadership" tasks are similar in both programs, but given the educational content, the Iranian program was more practical and its main focus is management, leadership, and policymaking in clinical settings. While at UC Davis University, nurses are prepared for leadership roles in the care system and faculty at colleges and specialist nurses in community.
Conclusion: Iranian universities have paid more attention to the practical and clinical aspects of MSc in Nursing Management and its main purpose is to train the Executive Specialists. It seems that incorporating training units into the course content, considering the clinical nature of the curriculum, is effective in enhancing students' ability
