Abstract

A study of literacy levels of the nurses aide population working in selected acute-care hospitals showed that a literacy deficit existed, described the type and degree of the deficit, and determined its prevalence according to selected demographic factors. Implications for staff development educators in roles of orientation, inservice, and continuing education are discussed for this population in regard to current changes in healthcare delivery patterns.
