Toward More Effective Teaching in WCHEN Schools; The Report of a Course in New Training Techniques for Nurse Faculty.
Elliott, Jo Eleanor
Forty-five abstracts represent projects prepared by faculty personnel from Western Council on Higher Education for Nursing (WCHEN) member schools who were participants in a short-term course, "Improving Instruction Through the Use of Selected Tools and Techniques." Programed instruction projects involve various clinical areas and deal with such subjects as arithmetic for nurses, interpersonal relationships, asepsis, intramuscular injection, traction, student counseling, physiology of the endocrine system, and allergy and hypersensitivity. Television teaching projects deal with basic public health statistics, medications, and leadership development. Some independent study project subjects are school nursing, lesson planning, teaching the history of nursing, structured and semi-structured method, psychiatric and public health nursing problems, and principles of administration, supervision, and team management. Team teaching projects deal with such subjects as transition from hospital to home, nursing care in diabetes, and fluid and electrolyte imbalance. (JK)
