Comparative Analysis of Four Manpower Nursing Requirements Models. Health Manpower References. [Nurse Planning Information Series, No. 6].
Deane, Robert T.; Ro, Kong-Kyun
The analysis and description of four manpower nursing requirements models-- the Pugh-Roberts, the Vector, the Community Systems Foundation (CSF), and the Western Interstate Commission of Higher Education (WICHE)--are presented in this report. The introduction provides an overview of the project which was designed to analyze these different models. The main body of the report (chapters 2 and 3) consists of a comprehensive description of the four models. Chapter 2 provides an individual overview of each of the models, highlighting their significant features in a comparative fashion. Chapter 3 contains a detailed analysis that focuses on each model's intended uses, comprehensiveness, theoretical construction, and operational feasibility. In chapter 4 the validity tests performed by the model builders are first described and then selected future validity tests are proposed. Finally, two types of model interaction--vertical and horizontal--are examined in chapter 5. (JH)
