Wood, Lucile A.
Described in this document is a five-stage curriculum model for the training of nurse practitioners which was developed through the Allied Health Professions Project (AHPP). Based on a national survey of nursing occupations, stage I of the curriculum model includes the 60 percent of activities common to all practitioners, and stage II includes the remaining or more complex skills. Stage III is designed to prepare teachers, administrators, or consultants for beginning faculty positions for stages I and II. Stage IV curriculum prepares teachers for faculty positions for stages II and III and administrators for large health agencies. Stage V prepares the nurse researcher at the doctoral level. This five-stage model can be used to increase competence in nursing practice, decision-making, and administrative and communications skills. (JS)
