South Dakota Statewide Core Curriculum, Career Ladder and Challenge System: Volumes I and II. Final Report.
The two volume final report of the South Dakota Statewide Core Curriculum, Career Ladder, and Challenge System Project, coordinating associated health and nursing education on a statewide basis to achieve a more systematic production and utilization of health manpower, is presented. Volume 1 includes five chapters: (1) and (2) outlining funding mechanism and contractual obligations; (3) discussing background information, methodology, and problems; (4) discussing activities and results; and (5) presenting future plans and evaluation. Primary and secondary core curricula and accompanying tests, career mobility options, and performance objectives were developed by the Health Manpower Council, formed by associated health and nursing programs throughout the State. An implementation study determined that out of 65 programs, 10 institutions would offer the primary core curricula to some 18 different programs in 1975, with use of the secondary core curricula difficult to determine. Little impact has been felt in the distribution of health workers. Volume 2 (over 300 pages) consists of appendixes, and includes: organizational data (personnel, cooperating institutions, visitations, and meetings); topical outlines of 22 course areas; topical outlines and performance objectives for primary and secondary core curricula; mean degree of performance objectives by program type; program implementation information; and other project-related materials.
