A Pilot Research Project to Determine the Feasibility of Developing Health Related Occupations Curricula at Nicolet College and Technical Institute. Final Report.
Maney, Thomas J.; Boyd, Linda
Personal interviews with each employer of health care workers in the Nicolet Vocational, Technical and Adult Education (VTAE) District were conducted to determine: (1) the extent of need for trained health occupations personnel in the district; (2) the projected need for such personnel in the future; (3) which specific health occupations currently were experiencing critical shortages of trained personnel; (4) the extent to which the need for trained health occupations personnel was being met by other agencies; (5) the extent to which district residents who enroll in health occupations programs in other districts return to the VTAE District for employment; and (6) whether alternative ways of meeting district needs would be more advantageous than developing health occupations curricula at Nicolet. The need for allied health and dental workers was not critical and was not expected to become so. However, the need for nursing manpower at the RN, LPN, and Nursing Assistant levels was substantial. District allied health, dental, and nursing manpower needs were being met by on-the-job and out-of-state training. Of every four residents leaving the district for health care training, only one was returning. Correspondence courses were the most prevalent alternative method for training. The survey instrument is attached. (DC)
