A Refresher Course for Registered Nurses: A Guide for Instructors and Students.
Health Resources Administration (DHEW/PHS), Bethesda, MD. Div. of Nursing.
Designed to help the inactive registered nurse, the Federally funded refresher course, developed by the Arizona State Nurses' Association, focuses on the review and updating of nursing knowledge and skills. The course uses a self-instructional, individualized learning process that can be applicable to as few as one or two students. The curriculum consists of 16 basic instructional modules organized in three groups: introduction, nursing role, and patient care. Optional modules included are: team leadership, pediatric nursing, maternity nursing, and psychiatric nursing. Part 2 is designed for the instructor and includes information about instructor role, student characteristics, and preliminary module descriptions. Part 3 consists of the syllabus of modules which provides module objectives, experiences (classroom, laboratory, and library), and proficiency experiences (individual conferences with the instructor). Many of the modules include word lists for students to define; one module presents a case study, while another provides a chart of levels of behavior from prenatal to old age. The appendix includes a master list of instructional materials and examples of various forms, checklists, and guides. (EA)
