Practical Nursing. Post Secondary Curriculum Guide.
Simpson, Bruce; And Others
This curriculum guide was designed for use in postsecondary practical nursing education programs in Georgia. Its purpose is to provide for the development of entry level skills in practical nursing in the areas of knowledge, theoretical structure, tool usage, diagnostic ability, related supportive skills, and occupational survival skills. The first two sections of 10 explain the philosophy and objectives of state and local vocational education, and of the guide. In section 3 the occupational field of practical nursing is described; and employability skills, student exit points, and tasks cross referenced to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles are listed. The curriculum structure and course outline are provided in section 4, while section 5, the main part of the guide, provides unit guides for each task to be taught. (For each task, a task description, student performance objective, suggested instructional activities, instructional materials, evaluation sections, suggested classroom hours, and related instruction tasks are included.) Section 6 contains references and resources, while student record forms comprise section 7. Following suggestions for working with special needs students (section 8), the guide concludes with a facility layout for a learning resource center and a laboratory, and definitions of terms (sections 9 and 10).
