Iowa Health Occupations Education Followup Study.
Petersen, Dale F.
Graduates of health occupations education (HOE) programs in Iowa which were partially supported by State and/or Federal funds were studied. The purpose was to assemble an information base useful in planning new programs or expanding existing ones. Coordinators of 47 HOE programs were able to locate 3,207 persons in 1969. A questionnaire was used to gather personal, educational, and employment information in some depth. Projections were validated by random sample and telephone interview of nonresidents. The graduates were also asked to evaluate their satisfaction with their training and employment potential. Seven recommendations are made. In a separate section, the possibility of overproduction of practical nurses in Iowa is found to be unlikely. Appendixes describe the HOE programs and present samples of the forms used in the study.
