The curriculum guide, developed to serve as a statewide model for nursing assistant programs, offers teaching suggestions for nursing assistant courses in the public schools. It is designed for 270 hours of theory and 200 hours of clinical instruction. There are 11 units of instruction: orientation; human behavior; medical communication skills; asepsis; nutrition; safety; body systems and disorders; basic skills; admission, transfer, and discharge; death; and maternal and infant care. For each unit, vertical columns present expected behavioral outcomes, content, suggested activities, and evaluation/assignment suggestions. The units constitute the first half of the document. The remaining half of the guide presents sample lesson plans in 16 areas: admission, asepsis, back care, bathing the newborn, care of the dying, communicable diseases, medical terminology, mental health, muscular system, nutrition, customs and rites, respiratory system, taking temperatures, and urinary system. The final three pages list sources for filmstrips, films, transparencies, kits, posters, pamphlets, and other material. (AG)
