Evaluation and Prediction of Rated Job Performance of Nursing Graduates.
Wilson, Barry J.
The job performance of 153 graduates of an associate degree nursing program was evaluated by doctors and nurses working in close supervision of the graduates. The evaluation instrument was constructed to represent both the curriculum objectives of the training institution as well as performance criteria of supervisors. Graduates also rated their preparation on a similar instrument. A number of curriculum implications of the results are discussed. Results also indicate no significant relationship between measures of scholastic success (GPA and State Board scores) and rated job performance. The study provides an example of successful implementation of a basic evaluation model. (Author)
