Curriculum for Discussion Time.
Steinhoff, Mary E.
This curriculum guide consists of materials for use in implementing two 10-meeting series of group discussions designed to enhance the process of the socialialization of students enrolled in an associate degree nursing program. Addressed in the discussion sessions are the following topics: developing an awareness of self-concept and gaining feedback from others, practicing active participation in a peer group by demonstrating both group building and maintaining roles, evaluating responses to positive and negative stresses and mastering stress management techniques, investigating the syndrome of reality shock in the role transition from student to nurse, identifying and managing conflict to promote positive behavioral change and to enhance self-awareness and self-growth, examining and clarifying personal values regarding crucial nursing issues as they arise in a practicum setting, and identifying aspects of one's self in relationship to nursing and to one's performance as a student. Each of these objectives is addressed several times together with different combinations of objectives in the 20 discussion outlines presented in the curriculum. The individual discussion outlines may contain some or all of the following: a list of objectives, procedures, one or more suggested learning activities, and a self-evaluation instrument. (MN)
