Student Material for Competency-Based Education Curriculum for Nursing Assistant. Second Edition.
Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.; West Virginia State Vocational Curriculum Lab., Cedar Lakes.
This second edition of the Nursing Assistant Competency-Based Education (CBE) Curriculum contains the curriculum units and related student guidelines and instructional materials. A discussion of how to use this curriculum precedes the table of contents. The curriculum is divided into twenty-eight units. The first three units include instructional modules on employment opportunities, human relations, and charting/reporting/recording patient information. The next twenty-five units are organized under the following categories: maintaining a clean, safe environment; caring for the personal needs of patients; assisting with nutrition and elimination needs of patients; assisting with treatments and procedures; coordinating and communicating; medical and surgical asepsis; caring for the terminal patient; and administering emergency treatments. Each unit contains instructional modules which are made up of several closely-related tasks. Each module contains a student competency sheet (SCS) for each task included in that module. The SCS is divided into three sections: a performance checklist, a competency-based test, and learning activities. Some student competency sheets have extra pages which supplement the text with further information or provide self-check tests. A teacher's guide (CE 022 483) accompanies this document. (BM)
