Open Learning and Career Mobility in Nursing.
Lenburg, Carrie B., Ed.
The book presents a series of articles that explore the issues and problems generated by open learning and career mobility approaches in nursing education within the context of higher education. It focuses on a description of representative models of career mobility patterns and approaches. The presentations are arranged in six parts. Part 1, Nontraditional Study Comes of Age, consists of five introductory articles providing an overview of the problems facing nursing education. Part 2 discusses the issues and problems related to career mobility in nursing and contains eight articles emphasizing curriculum development and educational planning. Parts 3-6 discuss the four models of career mobility patterns in nursing: (1) the licensure-based model (six articles), (2) the advance placement model (six articles), (3) the multiple exit-reentry model (eight articles), and (4) the assessment model (two articles). They include essential information about their development, implementation, problems, curriculum design, learning and evaluation methods, resources, and specific descriptive data about the students when possible.
