Implications of Career Openings in Health Occupations for Priorities in Vocational-Technical Education. Working Paper.
The implications of the pursuit of health goals in the 1970's are discussed to determine priorities in vocational-technical education. Factors basic to increasing the national emphasis on health in the 1970's are outlined. An increased demand for health services are changes in the health field and health occupations training will affect the supply of health manpower. The following agenda of priorities for planning and research in vocational-technical education is suggested: (1) program development for non-professional health occupations, (2) expansion of associate degree nursing and practical nurse programs, (3) increasing the representation of the "left out" groups in health occupations education, (4) closer coordination between vocational education and community health centers, (5) offering of core curriculum in health on the 11th and 12th grade levels, and (6) cooperation between vocational education and public and private agencies to assess local manpower situations.
