PRACTICAL NURSING IN ILLINOIS--A PROFILE.
TOMLINSON, ROBERT M.; AND OTHERS
THIS DOCUMENT, THE FIRST OF FIVE PLANNED REPORTS, PRESENTS THE HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF PRACTICAL NURSING, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO ILLINOIS. IT DESCRIBES THE BETTER LICENSING PROCEDURES AND STANDARDS THAT HAVE COME WITH THE INCREASED RECOGNITION OF THE VALUE OF THE OCCUPATION TO THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. THE REPORT ALSO DESCRIBES A 1600-HOUR CURRICULUM, INCLUDING THEORY AND PRACTICE, SUGGESTED BY THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REGISTRATION AND EDUCATION IN 1965. TABLES GIVE DATA ON THE PRESENT BACKGROUND OF THE NURSES (BY EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE), ON THEIR CHARACTERISTICS (MOST NOTABLY, DEVOTION TO THEIR CAREERS AND STABILITY IN THE LABOR MARKET), ON PRESENT EMPLOYMENT IN ILLINOIS AND ADJACENT AREAS, AND ON THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL RECRUITMENT AND TRAINING TO FILL CURRENT AND FUTURE NEEDS.
