Coordinated Inservice Leadership Development for Practical Nurse Teachers and Coordinators. Final Report. Vocational-Technical Education Research Report. Health Occupations, Monograph Number 9. Volume 16, Number 3.
Hole, F. Marvin; Byrd-Bredbenner, Debra Carol
Five inservice workshops for coordinators and teachers of practical nursing were conducted to provide a coordinated approach to curriculum development and to the teaching of practical nursing throughout the state of Pennsylvania. In addition to providing up-to-date information on curriculum development, design, and revision, topics such as mainstreaming the disadvantaged and handicapped learners into the practical nurse programs, recognition of the need for change in the health system, and need to examine curricula for career mobility were included. Based upon the findings of the project, these recommendations were made: that a course be developed on the legal aspects of health occupations education and be presented on a continuing basis throughout the state; that a long-term program be implemented to meet the inservice needs of coordinators and teachers in the area of improvement of instruction-curriculum development, evaluation, articulation, and delivery systems; and that a series of workshops be presented in such areas as staff development, career ladders and mobility, teaching methods, and counseling. (Evaluation instruments and selected materials utilized in the workshops are included in the appendixes.) (JH)
