Introduction to School Nursing Curriculum.
Miller, Dorothy B.
This booklet describes a pilot project, sponsored by the American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, which developed a curriculum for school nurses. The plan for the project emphasizes a) the development of a curriculum to introduce registered nurses to school nursing; b) provision for a workshop to test the curriculum through lectures, seminars, and study groups; c) publication of brochures, workshop announcements, curriculum, and evaluation materials; d) evaluation through pre- and posttesting of participants and on-site visits; and e) revision and publication of the curriculum. The specific aims of the curriculum include a) development of skills for health assessment; d) development of skills for implementing health education programs; c) the organization, administration, and coordination of a school health program; and d) the development of specialized programs for the continued preparation of nurses in school health. An outline of a curriculum to achieve these aims is presented, along with a workshop schedule. Evaluation of the project is based on participants' impressions, expressed on pre- and post-workshop questionnaires, and on-site visits. The appendix presents responses to the questionnaires, a bibliography on curriculum preparation, selected readings, and the Institute of Child Study (University of Maryland) bibliography. (BRB)
