You might need to start in the library. Are you familiar with Dorothy del Bueno? Her oritentation program "Performance Based Development System" is well published and I know she has an annual conference for nurse educators who are clients of her services -- a "users" conference. Look her up, it is a solid place to start.
Also, be sure to review the Journal of Nursing Staff Development and the Journal of Continuing Education in Nursing -- both are likely to highlight articles about new programming ideas that work!
