Chapter I introduces North Carolina's curriculum development project and the phases in which tasks, competencies, criterion measures, and instructional content were developed. Chapter II discusses the legal scope of nursing practice and job opportunities, focusing on the North Carolina Nursing Practice Act of 1981 and assumptions regarding associate degree nursing practice, and providing a dictionary of occupational titles for nurses. Chapter III delineates 168 tasks categorized as role-related competencies and the skills essential to patient care, and identifies the skills, knowledge, and attitudes ncecessary for the completion of these tasks. Chapter IV establishes nursing curriculum standards. Chapter V presents four associate degree nursing curriculum models; i.e., programs offered by Western Piedmont Community College (CC), Vance-Granville CC, Guilford Technical CC, and Randolph Technical College. Each program is described in terms of curriculum standard, curriculum by quarters, course descriptions, and the curriculum model. Finally, guidelines for admission, progression, and graduation are presented.
