Management Seminar Series I and II for Nursing Home Administrators, March-July 1969.
Peck, Janice R.
Developed by the University of Maryland for the Maryland-D.C. Nursing Home Association, these two series, each containing 84 hours of instruction in four three-day seminars, were designed to meet nursing home administrators' need for managerial skills and to prepare them for licensing. (Based on experiences with the first series, course materials and faculty were changed slightly in the second.) Preliminary conferences with 15 administrators showed favorable reactions to experience-based learning materials and discussion rather than passive learning. Seminars dealt, respectively, with planning and general concepts, leading and directing, measuring and controlling, and practical integration of knowledge and skills gained in the other seminars. One textbook (Leavitt's "Managerial Psychology") and a manual of 15 readings, were used. Tuition per series was $460 for Association members, $560 for nonmembers. Certificates of participation went to 58 persons in all. The seminars were largely rated good or excellent. However, two of the seminars (mainly informational lectures) were not so well received, and participants would have liked more time spent on presentation. Based on findings, it was proposed that the curriculum be revised to include 112 hours of instruction, possibly in four seminars of 3 1/2 days each during each semester. (LY)
