Articulation of Educational Programs for Nursing-Related Health Occupations. Final Report.
Markowitz, Selma Lee
A four-month study was undertaken to prepare a plan for the articulation of those educational programs for nursing-related health occupations for which the Connecticut Division of Vocational Education shares responsibility: nursing assistant programs in the comprehensive high schools; practical nurse education programs; and community college associate degree nursing programs. Study procedures followed were: (1) a review of literature, (2) an analysis of State legal restrictions pertaining to the three nursing levels, (3) an analysis of the instructional curricula and determination of commonalities of the three nursing levels, (4) job descriptions for the three levels, and (5) the holding of workshops. Conclusions were that nursing articulation is feasible and practical. Recommendations were that: (1) through task analysis a standardization of behavioral objectives and competency requirements for nursing-related educational programs be undertaken, (2) active measures be taken to implement alternative pathways (e.g., education by module, credit by examination and external degree programs), and (3) channels for intercommunication and collaboration among all persons and organizations involved in or sharing responsibility for nursing education be established (workshops, seminars, and newly-created or activated State/regional/local councils and task-oriented committees).
