Researching Second Step Nursing Education, Volume 2. Proceedings of the Annual National Second Step Conference (2nd, San Francisco, California, January 12-13, 1981).
Jako, Katherine L., Ed.
Proceedings are presented of the Second Annual Second-Step Nursing Education Conference. (Second-step nursing education encompasses postlicensure, upper-division baccalaureate programs expressly designed for registered nurses.) The texts of seven formal presentations at the conference are given including four in the area of national second-step project outcomes and three on professionalism. Specific presentations includes Leadership in Second-Step Programs: Problems and Solutions; Three Models of Second-Step Programs: The Ideal vs. the Real; Professionalization of Nursing Students in Second Step; and Characteristics of Novice and Expert Performance: Implications for Teaching and Experienced Nurse. The texts of three panel discussions are also provided. Panel topics included (1) the discrepancy between the position that registered nurses are already licensed as safe practitioners and the position that such licensures is insufficient evidence of their readiness to undertake an upper-division nursing program, (2) the unique processes and problems involved in developing a baccalaureate program for registered nurses, and (3) accreditation.
