A Follow-up Study of the Classes of 1968-1972: Nursing Capitation Grant Project B. Training for New Roles, Types, or Levels of Nursing Personnel.
Research Medical Center, Kansas City, MO. School of Nursing.
In June 1972, the Research Medical Center School of Nursing was awarded a Capitation Grant for approximately $66,000 under the Nurse Training Act of 1971. This report focuses on one of three projects delineated under this grant: Training for new roles, types, or levels of nursing personnel. The purpose of the project was to gather data relative to the post-graduation vocational and educational activities and future plans of the graduates for the five years 1968-1972. Part 1 of the study outlines the results of a questionnaire sent to the graduates as well as input obtained from the school's director and the Medical Center's assistant director for Patient Services. Part 2 of the study reviews the responses obtained to determine potential implications for the curriculum and to formulate recommendations based upon comments made by the graduates. The questionnaire contained a list of 22 nursing functions and two open-ended questions. The ratings of the nursing functions and responses to the open-ended questions provided the information for the recommendations. (JMF)
