An Analysis of Teaching Strategies Utilized in Facilitating the Learning Process of Technical Nursing Graduates Who Have Written the State Board Examination for Licensure.
Gibson, Lois Davis
In order to determine how the Technical Nursing Program at Florida Junior College (FJC) was contributing to the success or failure of its graduates, a questionnaire was sent to 30 FJC graduates who had taken the State Board Examination between December 1972 and December 1973 and who were locally employed. All of these students had been exposed to the same curriculum. Of the 23 respondents, nine had failed at least one of the five tests on the examination; of these, all had failed more than one test. When asked to indicate the teaching strategies used in the courses pertaining to the tests they had failed, six of the nine respondents indicated individualized instruction. When all respondents were asked to indicate the teaching strategies used in the courses pertaining to the tests on which they had performed best, 16 indicated lecture-discussion. Overall, the highest test scores were noted in medicine and psychiatry and the lowest in obstetrics. Other findings indicated that courses in surgery and obstetrics were not covered adequately to meet State Board requirements, and those respondents who read slowly had the greatest difficulty in passing the timed examination. A literature review and recommendations for program improvement are included. (DC)
