Nursing 286: Preparing for the California State Boards--A Review Course for Registered Nurse Graduates.
A description is provided of a two-year college course designed to prepare graduates from accredited nursing programs to take the California State Board Examinations. A course rationale, information on the curricular placement of the course and the targeted student population, and a glossary of terms are presented first. A description of the long-range objectives of the course (e.g., 80% success rate for students taking the State Boards and 80% employment rate in a nursing-related capacity) is followed by a list of instructional materials, including the required and recommended texts and audiovisual materials. Next, the following course units are described: (1) medical nursing; (2) surgical nursing; (3) obstetrical and gynecological nursing; (4) pediatric nursing; (5) psychiatric nursing; (6) ethical and legal issues in nursing; and (7) life-support techniques. Each unit description includes a short rationale for the unit, statements of goals and related objectives, a description of planned activities, and sample test items. Finally, a section on evaluation outlines the course grading scheme, procedures for course revision, and estimates of the number of students who will achieve the course's objectives and provisions for those students who do not.
