The Nursing Program in the UCLA Allied Health Professions Projects. Summary Report.
Wood, Lucile A.
To up-date information on the nursing occupations portion of the Allied Health Professions Project, the current status of the program and future projections are described. The 306 nursing tasks, which were developed by project staff and validated through a national survey, have been re-established into three lists. The lists take into account the "frequency rating" and "criticality rating" of each task and present those tasks performed by all categories (NA/LVN(LPN)/RN), those by the RN/LVN(LPN) only, and those by the RN only. Based on these categorical listings, the next step is to determine what units comprise the total course, and in what sequence the units should be taught. Each unit will be made up of one or more modules, and these modules may be transferred from one occupational cluster to another. Possible progression through the curriculums is illustrated by a schematic chart. Additional background information is available in ED 037 570, and other allied health professions projects are VT 011 425-VT 011 432. The interim report for the nursing occupations portion is VT 011 428. (SB)
