IMPROVING INSTRUCTION IN VOCATIONAL NURSING, ACTION-RESEARCH USING THE SMALL-GROUP METHOD. SECOND REPORT--EVALUATION.
BARLOW, MELVIN L.; BROWN, NORBERTA WILSON
THIRTY-FIVE FACULTY MEMBERS REPRESENTING TWO-THIRDS OF THE VOCATIONAL NURSING PROGRAMS IN CALIFORNIA ATTENDED TWO SERIES OF WORKSHOPS, EACH LIMITED TO EIGHT PARTICIPANTS, TO INVESTIGATE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS OF IMPROVING NURSING INSTRUCTION. GENERALLY, THE WORKSHOP DAY WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE PERIODS--CLINICAL EXPERIENCE, A WARD CONFERENCE, AND SEMINAR SESSIONS. THE FIRST PART OF THE TOTAL AGENDA FOCUSED UPON ACQUIRING UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE AND THE LATTER PART ON UTILIZING THIS UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE AS A BASIS FOR PLANNING LEARNING EXPERIENCES AND DEVELOPING CURRICULUMS. VARIATIONS IN SCHEDULES INCREASED THE OPPORTUNITY FOR FACULTY MEMBERS TO ATTEND WHILE THE SMALL-GROUP METHOD PROVIDED MAXIMUM OPPORTUNITY FOR COMMUNICATION AND STIMULATED A VARIETY OF PERSONALITIES. CLINICAL EXPERIENCE AND WARD CONFERENCES PROVIDED A FOUNDATION FOR SEMINAR SESSIONS, ESPECIALLY THOSE CONCERNED WITH CURRICULUM PLANNING. DURING THE YEAR FOLLOWING THE DELEGATES' RETURN TO THEIR PROGRAMS, SIGNIFICANT CHANGES WERE MADE IN CURRICULUMS, BUT FEW IN SELECTION AND COUNSELING. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE DIRECTED TO THE VOCATIONAL NURSING INSTRUCTOR, THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR, AND THE REGISTERED NURSE AND CONCERNED IMPROVING CURRICULUMS, ESTABLISHING STANDARDS IN SPECIFIC AREAS, PROVIDING TEACHER TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES, AND ESTABLISHING COOPERATION BETWEEN THE 1-YEAR VOCATIONAL AND THE 2-YEAR ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING PROGRAMS. DETAILED OBSERVER REPORTS OF PARTICIPANT CONCERNS, ANALYSIS OF PARTICIPANT EVALUATIONS, A DISCUSSION OF THE WORKSHOP METHOD, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM "A STUDY OF VOCATIONAL NURSING IN CALIFORNIA" ARE INCLUDED.
