Survey of Current and Proposed Allied Health Education Programs in New Mexico Post-Secondary Institutions, 1991.
McLaughlin, James L.; Burr, Marjorie
In spring 1991, the Council of Chief Instructional Officers of New Mexico two-year institutions compiled information on current and proposed allied health programs in order to foster cooperation and planning in allied health education among the 17 institutions in the state. In summer 1991, the compilation was updated to include allied health programs offered at the state's four-year institutions in order to provide an inclusive picture of the education available in New Mexico. This report lists all allied health programs offered in New Mexico, the institutions offering them, program names, and the degree offered; indicates whether the program is accredited and, if so, by which accrediting body; and reports the average number of students entering and graduating from the programs. Programs are listed in the following categories: (1) associate degree nurse; (2) licensed practical nurse; (3) nurse aide/nursing assistant; (4) emergency medical services; (5) radiologic technology; (6) medical laboratory technician; and (7) other assorted programs, including medical transcription, dental assistant, hospice and grief counseling, and home health aide. For proposed programs, the report lists the institutions that will offer them, the proposed names, implementation dates, degrees to be offered, proposed accreditation status, and anticipated enrollments and numbers of graduates. Proposed programs are listed in the categories of nursing, physical therapy assistant, radiologic technology, human services, occupational therapy, and respiratory therapist. (JMC)
