Universe of Goals. Pediatric Nurse Practitioner/Associate Programs.
Taunton, Roma Lee; Soptick, John M.
Goals for the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Associate Programs (PNP/A) are provided for the following areas: health care delivery systems; role responsibility; legal base for PNP/A role; growth and development; family-cultural factors; common childhood problems/illnesses/accidents; communication; assessment; recording; evaluation/interpretation; and devising, implementing, and evaluating a plan of health care. A listing was compiled through review of goal statements for the academic year 1974-75 from the 46 PMP/A programs, and each of the goals was identified by two reviewers to be a goal for at least one PNP/A program. A task force was convened to make operational the goals in the initial list, and the goals were edited and reviewed by the task force and project staff. The universe of goals was then critiqued by three validators. As each operational goal was developed by the task force, it was classified at the most appropriaty level in the cognitive domain, "Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives." Major categories or levels in the taxonomy are described in an appendix, and a bibliography is provided. (SW)
