Eller, Vercie M.; And Others
Contained in this curriculum guide are information and guidelines deemed essential to administrators and faculty for planning, implementing, and evaluating a community college Nursing Education Options Program. The document is divided into five sections covering: program development; students and student support services; facilities, equipment, and instructional aids; and the curriculum, which is both outlined and presented in detail. For each course, the following information is given: (1) sequential placement of the course in the curriculum; (2) course description; (3) course and lab hours per week; (4) quarter hours credit; (5) prerequisites; (6) suggested textbooks; (7) central and contributory learning objectives; (8) evaluation criteria; (9) detailed course outline; and (10) an extensive bibliography. The instructional phase of the program is combined with student clinical experiences. The curriculum spans eight academic quarters and provides two exit points--after one year for students wishing to work as licensed practical nurses, and after two years for students wishing to work as registered nurses and who wish to receive the Associate Degree. Appended are materials related to the nursing program: sources of audiovisual materials, suggested admissions and academic policies, student records, criteria for student evaluation, an equipment list, and a general bibliography.
