Examination of the Health Occupations Education Curriculum from a Futurist Perspective: III.
City Univ. of New York, NY. Inst. for Research and Development in Occupational Education.
This final report describes a project to examine the Health Occupations Education program in New York State from a futurist perspective and contains 18 papers presented at meetings. An introduction summarizes activities of the Health Occupations Review Committee that conducted the project and committee meetings. The first 12 papers address these concerns in health occupations education: types of students who enter health occupations education programs; adult students serviced by health occupations education; sex equity futures for health occupations; the education of handicapped students for the jobs of the future; characteristics of disadvantaged students with specific implications for curriculum design; civil rights issues; teacher qualifications, education, and certification; an overview of the health occupations programs of the State University of New York (SUNY); organizational structure of SUNY community colleges; a nursing articulation agreement with a BOCES occupational center; health programs at the City University of New York; and educational mobility in nursing. The final six papers present cost implications of the committee's preliminary recommendations for the reorganization of the New York State Health Occupations Education curriculum. (YLB)
