THE NEW YORK STATE ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING PROJECT--A FINAL REPORT TO THE W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION.
KINSINGER, ROBERT E.
FROM DETAILED ANALYSES OF 16 ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING PROGRAMS, EFFORTS WERE MADE TO COORDINATE THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPROVEMENT OF A.A. DEGREE NURSING EDUCATION. NO ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO RELATE THE INFORMATION TO BACCALAUREATE AND DIPLOMA SCHOOLS OF NURSING. FROM QUESTIONNAIRES, INTERVIEWS, AND COLLEGE CATALOG DATA, SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES IN ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING PROGRAMS WERE IDENTIFIED, SUCH AS THE COEDUCATIONAL, 2-YEAR NONRESIDENTIAL NATURE OF MOST SPONSORING INSTITUTIONS, AND SIMILAR ADMISSION AND GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS (SUCH AS THE CUMULATIVE SCHOLASTIC INDEX OF 2.0 FOR A DEGREE). THERE IS A WIDE VARIATION IN ENROLLMENT PATTERNS, CLASS-LABORATORY HOURS, STUDENT-FACULTY RATIOS, TEACHING LOADS, AND CURRICULUM BALANCE BETWEEN GENERAL EDUCATION AND NURSING COURSES. PROPONENTS OF STRONG GENERAL EDUCATION FOUNDATIONS BELIEVE IN ALTERING CURRICULUMS TO INCLUDE 50 PERCENT GENERAL EDUCATION, 25 PERCENT NURSING, AND 25 PERCENT SUPPORTIVE COURSES. A DISTRIBUTION TABLE OF REQUIRED SUBJECTS AND ELECTIVES IS USEFUL IN ASSESSING THE PRESENT EMPHASIS. SOME FAVORABLE OUTCOMES OF THE PROJECT WERE IMPROVED COORDINATION AND TEACHER PREPARATION, A RESOURCE CENTER, DEMONSTRATION CENTERS, AND PRELIMINARY PLANNING SURVEYS. A DIRECTORY AND BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAMS IS INDICATED BY THE 80 PERCENT HOSPITAL EMPLOYMENT RATE OF GRADUATES. (DE)
