This project report contains two major components: (1) a feasibility study to assess the need for an associate degree nursing program at Williamsport Area Community College, Pennsylvania; and (2) an appropriate curriculum developed for the project. The feasibility study describes the community characteristics, reviews the college resources, and presents results of surveys indicating the need for and interest in such a program. Appendixes include correspondence; charts illustrating the overall organization and administration of the college; survey instruments; memorandum of understanding; and letter of support. The curriculum includes the nursing admission policy; nursing philosophy; program goals and objectives; and catalog descriptions to be used in the 1988-89 college catalog. The seven courses cover nursing foundations; medical/surgical concepts and principles; advanced medical/surgical concepts and principles; pediatrics; maternity nursing; mental health nursing, and a nursing seminar. Course descriptions provide prerequisites; co-requisites; credits; rationale; and textbooks. A list of course objectives and outlines that correlate contributory objectives with course content and list related learning and evaluation activities are presented for each course. (YLB)
