16 p. 

As a means of evaluating its nursing curriculum, the Los Angeles Community College District conducted a follow-up survey of 111 nursing graduates: 33 White graduates of Los Angeles Pierce College; 17 Black graduates of Los Angeles Southwest College; 27 Hispanic graduates of East Los Angeles College; 19 Asian/Pacific Islander graduates of Los Angeles City Colleges; and a multi-ethnic group of 15 graduates from Los Angeles Valley College. The survey instrument solicited information concerning: (1) the usefulness and students' use of tutoring, the value of repetition of course content, and the adequacy of instruction in each specialized area of nursing; (2) the value of various educational experiences in preparing students to take the State Board examinations; (3) the perceived strengths or weaknesses of the college program with respect to a variety of clinical experiences, hospital training, and review courses; and (4) personal information, such as age, year of graduation, continuing education activities, and number of hours working while in school. Selected findings reveal that 65% of the respondents worked while in college and that approximately 20% had used college tutoring services. The graduates felt that more clinical experience should have been provided and that they were least prepared for the psychiatric nursing component of the board examination. The study report tabulates findings by college. (JP)
