This first semester, competency-based nursing course for an Associate degree nursing program is preceded by the final report of the project that developed it. An abstract, objectives, methodology, and findings are included. The course of study first provides a course description; course objectives; a content outline; a list of required instructional materials, supplies, and equipment; and a competency profile. The course consists of nine units, containing two to seven modules. Each unit begins with a list of the competencies covered. Components of each module may include some or all of the following: competency sheets with unit and module titles, competency, performance objectives, learning activities, evaluations, extended learning activities; quizzes; case studies; a bibliography list; a teacher's guide with teacher activities and teaching suggestions; and handouts. At the end of each unit, a pretest for review and a competency exam and answer key are provided. Topics covered in the nine units are basic concepts, gas transport problems, cardiovascular problems, endocrine dysfunction, problems of nutrition, urinary obstructions, neuro-muscular-skeletal problems, malignancy and sexual identity, and burn management.
