Mount Hood Community Coll., Gresham, OR.
This project sought to develop a competency based curriculum for Associate Degree Nursing that would be a logical outgrowth of the principles on which student performance outcomes and measurable exit criteria were based. The report includes the products, processes, and evaluation of each of the following project objectives: identification of the conceptual logic of nursing as an applied science; the development of instructional logic; the identification of alternative instructional materials for reaching performance outcomes; the development of behavioral entry criteria for learners; coordination of entry and exit criteria with college admissions policies; refinement of exit criteria; follow-up of graduates and dropouts; and continued refinement of learner competencies. In addition, extensive appendices include sample learning packets, student evaluation criteria for personalization of patient care, criteria for aide and licensed practical nurse performance, samples of course syllabi, identification of critical elements by nursing care area, daily behavior chart and computer forms, a course outline for competency based education, and letters and questionnaires pertaining to graduates, dropouts, work supervisors, and head-nurse administrators.
