Job Analysis for Nurses and Related Health Care Professionals: A Task Inventory Approach.
Van Cleve, Roy R.
This handbook is designed as a guide for nursing supervisors and hospital administrators to help them decrease unnecessary overlap and increase efficiency of nursing staff and related allied health professionals through job analysis. Three chapters and five appendixes are included. Chapter I deals with the meaning of job analysis, qualitative aspects of job analysis, basic structure of jobs, and uses and users of data. Chapter II is concerned with proper use of a job analysis, including definition of terms and job analysis techniques. Chapter III deals with the task inventory method, analysis of task data, and inventory administration. The appendixes provide more comprehensive, detailed information necessary for conducting a job analysis, including a systems approach to manpower analysis, an example of an individual job description, descriptions of selected CODAP programs (Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Program, a computerized occupational data analysis system which inputs and performs calculations upon raw data from job inventories), instructions for administering the survey, and replications of the actual task analysis form developed for nurses and related health care professionals.
