Employment Follow-Up of Nursing Graduates, Lakeland Community College, 1970-1973.
Lakeland Community Coll., Mentor, OH.
The Nursing graduates of Lakeland Community College (Ohio) from 1970 through and including 1973 were surveyed by a mail questionnaire to determine: where the nurses are employed, what types of jobs they hold, what are their salaries, what types of assignments are included in their nursing positions, and how they rate their education at Lakeland in preparing them for their first position. A total of 147 questionnaires were mailed, and 63 usable responses were received (42.9 percent). Full-time employment was reported by 82.5 percent of the respondents. The median annual salary reported was $9,790. Three graduates decided to continue their education and earn four-year degrees. Overall, the graduates reported they were satisfied with their positions and their salaries; however, they felt there could be some room for improvement. The majority felt their occupational training at Lakeland was favorable as it related to their preparation for their nursing careers. Several suggestions are included for improved or added courses to the Nursing curriculum to further improve occupational preparation. There are twenty-one institutions listed as current employers for Nursing graduates. The survey instrument is appended along with individual comments elicited by the questionnaire. (Author/AH)
