Nurses Aide and Hospital Orderly, Course Description.
Stroup, Katherine L.; Anderson, Floyd L.
Prepared by an instructor and curriculum development specialist of the Minnesota Work Opportunity Center, this course is designed to train dropout and/or hard-core unemployed youth for occupations as aides or orderlies in hospitals and nursing homes. Each student enrolled in the program receives a personal orientation, and after demonstrating the necessary skills and self-confidence, they receive practical experience in a hospital under the instructor's supervision. A cooperative program with the University of Minnesota hospitals has been initiated whereby students receive theory and basic skills in the classroom and when they are ready to do patient care, they are employed on a part-time basis until completion of the course. Content is broken down into short instructional topics in orientation to nursing, basic nurse's aide procedures, and first aid. An annotated bibliography is included, and brief descriptions of the Center's instructional areas, a listing of teaching techniques and motivation devices, and case studies are appended. Related materials are available as VT 011 518-VT 011 533 in this issue. (SB)
