Baker, William E.; And Others
The document is one of five summary reports, all part of a Pre-Technical Curriculum Planning Project for secondary students who aspire to technical employment or post secondary technical education. This report represents the results of an assessment of the northeast Florida area's technical occupations in health related occupations. A three-phase approach was utilized: (1) the identification of three broad career clusters in medical, laboratory, and nursing fields; (2) development of a survey instrument; and (3) a review of data collected. The following occupations are analyzed according to tasks and corresponding skills/knowledges: medical office assistant, records clerk, librarian, and receptionist; laboratory technician; laboratory assistant; histologic and blood bank technician; cytotechnologist; technical nurse; licensed practical nurse; nurse's aide; orderly; and surgical assistant. Employment statistics and projections, conclusions and recommendations complete the document. (MW)
