This document contains the curriculum for the first nursing course in the Licensed Vocational Nurse Mobility Track Project. The project is designed to provide selected Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) the opportunity to complete the nursing course requirements for an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (ADN) in three semesters of part-time course work. This course assesses and evaluates nursing knowledge, skills, and attitudes in relationship to the transition to associate degree nursing practice. The content focuses on review of concepts basic to nursing practice and presents content to expand the student's nursing knowledge, skills, and attitudes as they develop in the ADN role of provider of patient care. Laboratory experiences provide the student the opportunity to demonstrate the application of prior learning and new knowledge to clinical situations. The six modules of the course cover the following topics: nursing--profession and process; the psychosocial need; the safety need; the rest, comfort, activity, and regulatory need; the nutrition and elimination needs; and the oxygen need. Each module contains an introduction, module objectives, learning activities, content information, learning resources, and a pretest/posttest. Appendices provide entry-level objectives and materials for the last four modules. (KC)
