Education for Nursing Practice; Report of the New York State Nurses Association 1966 Arden House Conference.
New York State Nurses Association, Albany.
Ninety-six nursing leaders participated in the conference to discuss nursing education, nursing service, and the role of the professional association. It was hoped that similar discussions on the local level would result. Speeches included "The Case for Creativity in Nursing" by Apollinia O. Adams and "Education for ????" separate presentations by Eleanor C. Lambertsen and Jean Campbell. Each of 10 discussion groups considered the overall question: How do we move in an orderly fashion from the present situation to that outlined in the American Nurses Association Position Paper on Education? In addition, each group was assigned one of the following topics and presented pertinent recommendations: (1) Cooperation of nursing education and nursing service in the preparation of the practitioner, (2) more effective control of nursing by the nursing profession, (3) joint responsibility of education and service for the stimulation of research, (4) expectations and responsibility of nursing service in the preparation of the practitioner, (5) preparation and role of the clinical specialist, (6) planning between education and service for staff development, (7) dual responsibility of education and service in developing leaders, (8) achievement of a professional level of nursing practice, (9) analysis and promotion of quality patient care, and (10) joint planning for maximum use of clinical and educational facilities.
