SREB's Nursing Curriculum Project: Summary and Recommendations.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA. Nursing Curriculum Project.
This manual reports the summary and conclusions of the series "Pathway to Practice," the Nursing Curriculum Project conducted by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). The project's aims, procedures and methods, and specific findings are identified, followed by a discussion of ten recommendations concerned with implications for the nursing curriculum. Recommendations cover the areas of differentiation of workers, common base of knowledge, levels of knowledge, Associate Degree curriculum, the Baccalaureate curriculum, the graduate program, continuing education, accommodating the learners, transcending institutional boundaries, and transcending disciplinary boundaries. The conclusion points out that if the Nursing Curriculum Project as a whole has a single message, it is that nursing must firmly reject its old image of simple dependency and substitute a true image of its complexity and dependability.
