Guide for Developing a Pre-Employment Training Program for Nurses' Aides.
Michigan League for Nursing, Detroit.
The guide is intended to serve two purposes: (1) to provide information to agencies contemplating the establishment of a pre-employment training program, and (2) to assist administrative and instructional personnel responsible for such programs. Prior to publication, a tentative draft was circulated to directors of nursing in the 143 Michigan League for Nursing member hospitals for review and recommendations, and selected individuals were consulted. The guide is organized into three major sections. Part I, a guide for initial planning, discusses assessing community needs, selecting the program setting, financing the program, appointing the advisory committee, and interpreting the program. Part II, a guide for organizing the program, deals with the purpose, role of the worker, administrative and fiscal responsibility, instructional staff, training facilities, trainee recruitment and selection, training objectives, curriculum planning, evaluation, and employment counseling. Part III, guides for the instructional staff, presents model training objectives, recommended curriculum content, and a model lesson plan and source schedule. Appendixes include information on age distribution and education background of nurse aides in Michigan and a listing of related references. (JK)
