This qualitative case study examines the experiences of adjunct nursing faculty within the curriculum development process at universities granting a bachelor's degree in nursing within the Philadelphia five-county region, and the state of New Jersey. Seven adjunct nursing faculty members participated in this study providing detailed input of their experiences in this process. Five themes were uncovered during analysis including: assembling a critical foundation, value added, incidental collaboration, a seat at the table, and trial by fire. These themes helped to provide a deeper understanding of the opportunities, rewards, and challenges experienced by these adjunct nursing faculty members in the curriculum development process. Recommendations for additional research are provided.
