This curriculum guide is designed to prepare nursing professionals to assess clients' needs and help both the doctor and clients. The guide contains seven units. Unit 1 introduces the basic concepts of growth and development that the student will need to understand as a basis for the remaining units. Each of the remaining six units discusses caring for a specific age or developmental group: the dying person, infants, children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. Each instructional unit includes some or all of the basic components of a unit of instruction: performance objectives, suggested activities for the teacher, extensions and options, information sheets, job sheets, practical tests, written tests, and answers to assignment sheet and written test. Academic skills training is combined with vocational training throughout the instructional materials. To assist teachers in identifying activities that promote basic skills development, a marking system of simple graphic symbols, or icons, is used to denote which of the following nine general basic skill categories is being emphasized: reading, science, creative thinking/problem solving, writing, oral communication, employability, math, interpersonal skills, and social studies.
