This packet contains a program guide and a Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) for the implementation of a nursing assistant program in Florida postsecondary schools. The program guide describes the program content and structure, provides a program description, lists job titles under the program, and includes a curriculum framework and a set of student performance standards for nursing assistant courses. The curriculum framework outlines major concepts and content, laboratory activities, program specifics, and intended outcomes; the student performance standards guide lists each standard and the behavior the student is expected to be able to demonstrate in order to show mastery of each standard. The guide also provides information on the following topics: facilities, equipment, and supplies, and safety for nursing assistant education classrooms and laboratories; program implementation; teacher professional development, teacher certification, professional organizations and support services; and instructional resources (a list of 19 print materials and 15 audiovisual materials). Appended to the program guide is a sample student learning guide that includes program title, intended outcome, learning activities with resources, procedures, information sheets, self-check with answers, written test with answers, and performance test. The Career MAP is a checklist, to be kept by both student and teacher, of student progress in the competencies required for entry into jobs in the nursing assistant field. (KC)
