The guide was developed on the basis of advice from a widely representative committee appointed by the Colorado State Department of Public Health. The materials were tested in a course in an urban center and a course in a rural center. The initial portion of the manual presents: (1) guidelines for organizing preparatory nurse aide courses, (2) guidelines for orientation and inservice education for aides who have had preparatory courses, and (3) forms for student and employer evaluation of the courses. The remainder and major portion of the guide presents course outlines for the basic course for nurse aides and the supplementary course for those who are to work as home health aides. Course outlines include guidelines for preparation and teaching evaluation, and experience record forms, job descriptions, and lesson plans. The time allotment for the basic course is 180 hours and for the supplementary course 60 hours. (JK)
