Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.; West Virginia State Vocational Curriculum Lab., Cedar Lakes.
This teacher's guide is designed to accompany the Nursing Assistant Competency-Based Education (CBE) Curriculum which is based on a survey of current practices in West Virginia and a neighboring labor market determining the tasks actually performed by people employed as nursing assistants. The guide is divided into eight major sections. Section 1 presents an explanation of the curriculum and suggested guidelines for use. Section 2 contains definitions of important terms. Section 3 provides a list of competencies organized by the following job titles: nursing assistant/orderly/home health aide; child-care attendant, school; occupational therapy aide; physical therapy aide; psychiatric aide; dental assistant/medical assistant; and licensed practical nurse. Section 4 includes a table of contents for the curriculum units (CE 022 482). Unit tests and answer keys are found in section 5, and a list of references to accompany the curriculum is found in section 6. Section 7 provides the equipment and supply lists. Finally, section 8 contains two appendixes: (1) information on tasks currently performed and the equipment used as determined from the validation survey, and (2) lists of curriculum aids currently used in West Virginia Nursing Assistant programs.
