The Relationship Between Nursing Education and Performance: A Critical Review. Nurse Planning Information Series 8.
Dennis, Lyman C., II; Janken, Janice K.
This monograph examines the effect that type of education has on nursing performance. It explores the issue of whether or not nurses educated in diploma, baccalaureate, and associate degree programs differ in their practice of nursing and, ir so, in what ways. A proposed change in the training of nurses is noted, namely to reorganize nursing into two groups: professional nurses and technical nurses. The title of professional nurse would be reserved for graduates of baccalaureate programs. The two categories of nurses would be held responsible for different competencies. (JD)
