Smith, Frederick R.
This Rate Training Manual and Nonresident Career Course (RTM/NRCC) form a self-study package that will enable Hospital Corps personnel to help themselves fulfill the requirements of their rating. Among these requirements are the abilities to perform duties as assistants in the prevention, recognition, and treatment of disease and injuries, and in the administration of medical departments ashore, afloat, and in the field with the Marine Corps; perform first aid; assist in the transportation of the sick and injured; assist with physical examinations; give nursing care to patients, including the administration of medicines and parenteral solutions; collect laboratory specimens and perform simple laboratory procedures; instruct in personal hygiene, first aid, and self-aid; assist in the preparation and maintenance of medical records; assist in the maintenance of approved sanitary standards; and assist in the prevention and treatment of chemical, biological, and radiological casualties. Designed for individual study and not formal classroom instruction, the RTM provides subject matter that relates directly to the occupational qualifications of the Hospital Corpsman rating. The NRCC provides the usual way of satisfying the requirements for completing the RTM. The set of assignments in the NRCC includes learning objectives and supporting items designed to lead students through the RTM. The book covers the material needed by hospital corpsmen to pass the rating in 12 units. A list of commonly used abbreviations and a glossary are contained in the appendix. (KC)
