Text and accompanying exercises are utilized in these two learning modules to instruct nurses and nursing administrators in personnel management techniques. The first module, "How to Determine Unit Staffing Needs" by Malcolm R. MacDonald, describes a procedure for determining the number of nurses needed in a patient care unit on the basis of average daily occupancy data and estimated vacation, holiday, and sick day adjustments. The second module, "Job Related Training Program (Cross Training)" by Helen Misko, examines how to identify departmental in-service training needs by evaluating staff competencies with respect to established departmental functions. Both modules describe techniques and procedures, provide sequential reinforcement exercises with immediate feedback on responses, and conclude with a post-test and accompanying answer key. The modules require 30 minutes each to complete. (JP)
