Foerst, Helen V.; Gareau, Florence E.
To aid state and local manpower planning for nursing needs and resources, this guide presents basic principles and procedures essential to identifying needs and examining resources effectively. A wide range of resource and annotated reference lists present survey and study reports, background material, tools for planning, and a guide to statistical data. The general nature of the planning process, initiation of planning, building and strengthening the organizational structure, and assessing needs are discussed. Developing a plan of action, data collection, and assessing requirements for nursing manpower are covered. Diagrams present five organizational structures for planning. This guide was written by two nursing consultants and their director in manpower evaluation and planning. (AG)
