Competency-Based Curriculum for Articulated Programs in Nursing Occupations. A Study for the Articulation of Competency-Based Curricula for the Coordination of Vocational-Technical Education Programs in Louisiana. Final Report. Volume V.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Vocational Education.
The curriculum guide for nursing occupations is one of five guides written and field tested in a project to develop statewide articulated competency-based curricula in selected vocational education programs. Following an introductory section giving the philosophy, background, and recommendations for nursing education, the 82 study units are arranged under the following general headings: The Nursing Process, Fundamentals of Nursing, Medical-Surgical Nursing, Maternal and Child Health Nursing, and Advanced Nursing of Adults and Children. For each unit, the terminal objective is stated and the performance objectives and criterion-referenced measures are listed. Intended to provide training for the nurses aide, licensed practical nurse, and the associate degree registered nurse, exit points are indicated for the first two occupations after successful completion of the required units. A bibliography is included. Appended is a 32-page excerpt of the American Nurses' Association Standards of Nursing Practice giving the rationale and assessment factors for each standard. The standards served as the major criteria for the evaluation of overall performance in the client care setting. (RG)
