Student Material for Competency-Based Education Curriculum for Licensed Practical Nurse.
Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.; West Virginia State Vocational Curriculum Lab., Cedar Lakes.
This curriculum for licensed practical nurse contains 18 units. Each unit is divided into modules comprised of task or job-related competencies. A student competency sheet (SCS) provided for each task is organized into this format: unit number and name, module letter and name of the group of related tasks, and number and name of task; performance checklist; test portion listing items needed, task, and standard; and learning activities. Following some SCSs are information sheets, self-check tests, and/or performance checks. The first three units (A,B,C), which deal with employment opportunities, human relations, and charting, reporting, and recording contain no modules, only tasks. The units cover such nursing skills as maintaining a clean, safe environment; caring for personal, nutrition, and elimination needs of patients; assisting with treatments and procedures; coordinating and communicating; medical and surgical asepsis; caring for the terminal patient; administering emergency treatments; establishing sterile areas; preparing patients for examinations or surgery; administering medication; caring for respiratory tract and urinary, gastro-intestinal, and reproductive systems; and performing supervised management procedures. A teacher's guide is available separately--see note. (YLB)
