These lesson plans and student materials--handouts and workbook--for a secondary-postsecondary-level course for clinical specialists are one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. Purpose stated for the 105-hour course is to provide skills and techniques required to participate as effective and efficient members of a health care team performing preventive, therapeutic, and emergency care duties. The program of instruction, which suggests number of hours of class time devoted to each course objective, is based on three main subject areas: Orientation (2 lessons, 2 hours), Fundamentals of Patient Care (13 lessons, 81 hours), and Ambulatory Health Care (7 lessons, 22 hours). The lesson plans detail references, equipment, and content description (lesson outlines). A number of student handouts with detailed note-taking pages are also provided. The student workbook contains lesson objectives and detailed note-taking pages. Excerpts (chapters 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10) from Army Technical Manual TM-8-230, Handbook of Basic Nursing, are also provided.
