An Approach to the Teaching of Psychiatric Nursing in Diploma and Associate Degree Programs: Final Report on the Project.
Walsh, Joan E.
The purpose of the project was to determine what goals, content, and learning experiences in psychiatric-mental health nursing should be included in diploma and associate degree education for nursing in the light of present-day trends in nursing and psychiatric care. The report follows the sequence of the project: (1) selection of associate degree and diploma programs to participate in the project, (2) assessment of the current offerings in psychiatric-mental health nursing in the selected programs, (3) identification of goals and selection of content and learning experiences through the participation of a group of clinically competent psychiatric nurses as project consultants, and (4) testing and evaluating the resulting method and materials in the participating programs by instructors prepared through a workshop. The final section presents evaluations of the project by participating programs and project staff. Appended are: (1) questionnaires utilized in the project, (2) a listing of questions discussed with consultants from associate degree and diploma programs, (3) a listing of terminal expected competencies, (4) a listing of operational definitions, (5) a bibliography, and (6) progress reports.
