An Investigation of the Cost-Benefits and Consumer Outcomes Related to Competency Based Education In a Community College Nursing Program. Final Report, 1973-74.
Mount Hood Community Coll., Gresham, OR.
Three final reports on a competency-based computer-assisted nursing education program at Mt. Hood Community College include the following: (1) the examination and refinement of curricular outcomes; (2) cost analysis of the program relative to nursing education, learner benefits, and effectiveness; and (3) an examination of the relationship between desired patient outcomes and expected curricular outcomes. The first report presents the educational objectives, each followed by evaluation criteria, procedures, and results. Cost analysis includes revenue-expenditures generated, full-time equivalent income generated, student/instructor ratios, program cost comparisons with other health programs, faculty activity analysis, and cost effectiveness vs. cost benefits. The third report explores in depth the responses of a Patient Advisory Committee and a larger patient group relative to desired patient outcomes. Appendices include letters and surveys of the consumer advisory committee, lists of illnesses, lists of specific nursing behaviors, distributions of nursing competencies generated by the Patient Advisory Committee, student survey instruments, and tally sheets used for assessing nursing competencies.
