Study on Male Nursing College Students' Subjectivity in Their Attitude toward Jobs
Doo, Hyun-Jung ; Kim, Yoon-Sook ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 14, issue 2, 2008, Pages 167~175
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.167
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the structure and characteristics of male college nursing students' personality-based career attitudes. Method: The Q-methodology was used to identify factors in male nursing students' personality-based career attitudes. A Q sample was collected from literature reviews (Kim & Kim, 2005). The subjects consisted of 30 male nursing students. Result: The results of the study show that male nursing students can be categorized into four types. The five factors extracted all had eigen values greater than 1.0 and explained approximately 50.84% of the variation in responses (32.62, 7.59, 5.70 and 4.93% respectively). The categories were labeled 'Repair intention style', 'Belief intention style', 'Stability intention style', and 'Self-regulation intention style'. Conclusion: Through a process that analyzes subjective structure, male nursing students' personality based career attitudes create occupational consciousness, professional accomplishment and professional ethics as a nursing profession. Content of curriculum and development of a reasonable and realistic course consultation program should be done.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.176
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that influence depression, suicidal thought, and life satisfaction of Korean elders. Method: The subjects for this study were 219 Korean elders living in three different provinces. The data was collected using structured questionnaires from October through December, 2007. Result: There were statistically significant differences in the levels of depression, suicidal thought, and life satisfaction according to age, health state, sleep state, economic state, feeling of loneliness, feeling of abuse, and having friends or neighbors. Suicidal thoughts correlated less with the above factors than depression did. Depression significantly correlated with age, life satisfaction, loneliness and suicidal thought. Suicidal thought was influenced significantly by depression. Life satisfaction was influenced significantly by depression, health state, and economic state. Conclusion: It could be concluded that nursing interventions for reducing depression and suicidal thought should be developed to improve life satisfaction and the health state of Korean elders as well as to relieve their feelings of loneliness.
Study on the Curriculum of Gerontological Nursing - Baccalaureate Degree Programs(BSN) in Korea -
Yun, Eun-Suk ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 14, issue 2, 2008, Pages 188~194
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.188
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to survey the present status of the gerontological nursing course in Baccalaureate degree programs(BSN) in Korea, so as to provide basic data for developing a standard model for a gerontological nursing curriculum. Method: Data on the contents of a gerontological nursing curriculum was collected from those programs that had a gerontological nursing course. Result: The results show that 48 schools(87.3%) offered a gerontological nursing course. Twenty-five schools(45.5%) had both lectures and clinical practicum, while 23 schools(41.8%) had only lectures. Twenty-seven schools(56%) offered a gerontological nursing course as an elective. Students earned the most number of credits in their senior year. The most common credit system for lecture subjects was 2 credits with 38 schools(79.2%) and a clinical practicum was 1 credit with 20 schools(80%). The issues identified were that gerontological nursing was an elective and not a mandatory course, a lack of clinical lab hours, and a lack of common learning objectives. Conclusion: Recommendations are made for better defined curricula in gerontological nursing. In addition, further investigations of the learners or students entering gerontological nursing to facilitate curriculum development and appropriate instructional strategies are needed.

Lee, Mi-Aie ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 14, issue 2, 2008, Pages 195~204
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.195
Purpose: This study was performed to measure the justice of compensation (distributive justice, procedural justice) and the intention of turnover perceived by nurses, and to identify the relationship between these two variables. Method: This study was a cross-sectional survey. From May 26 to June 30, 2008, data were collected from the 300 nurses working at 6 general hospitals in 5 cities, Korea. Result: The score of compensatory justice was 2.47(distributive justice was 2.46, procedural justice was 2.48), and the score of turnover intention was 3.39. The Pearson Correlation Coefficient between these two variables was -.496. The perceived compensatory justice(distributive justice, procedural justice)by nurses, their age and working periods were the affecting factors on their turnover intention, and the power of explanation of these affecting factors was 43.4%. Conclusion: According to the results, procedural justice is the most powerful factor among these affecting factors. Therefore, it is concluded that to decrease nurses' turnover intention, nursing or hospital managers have to fairly operate their compensation system, especially procedural justice, in their organization.

Gu, Hye-Ja ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 14, issue 2, 2008, Pages 205~215
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.205
Purpose: This study was to identify the relationship between the degree of family support and the degree of satisfaction in clinical practice by nursing students. Method: This study was designed to measure the level of satisfaction according to the content, guidance, circumstance, hours, and the evaluation of clinical practice. Four hundred sixty-five nursing students from 4 nursing colleges, and 1 baccalaureate program in G area were randomly sampled. An instrument consisting of 64 questions, developed by the researcher and a nursing professor, was used to gather data from March 10 through 31, 2008. The data was analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson Correlation, using the SPSS 14.0 program. Result: The results were summarized as follows : Family support of nursing students showed a significant difference by religion (t=2.104, p=0.036) and satisfaction of major (F=8.010, p<0.001). The satisfaction degree of clinical practice by nursing students showed a significant difference by university or college (t=2.636, p=0.012), residence type (t=2.098, p=0.036), and satisfaction of major (F=5.779, p=0.003). The relationship between generally perceived family support correlated with the degree of satisfaction in clinical practice of nursing students (r=.199, p<0.001). Conclusion: It was found that a higher degree of satisfaction in clinical practice depends on a higher degree of family support. Therefore, nursing faculty should plan interventions to inspire satisfaction level of clinical practice by family support.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.282
Purpose: This study was done to identify the effects of an exercise correction program for scoliosis on the physical and psychological functions of middle-school students with scoliosis. Method: The design of this study was a nonequivalent control group pretest-posttest design. The students who participated in the study were 45 middle school students with scoliosis. Twenty-four students were assigned to the experimental group and 21 to the control group. The treatment given to the experimental group was a scoliosis correction exercise program. The scoliosis correction exercise program was given 3 times a week for a period of 12 weeks. Result: For Cobb's angle, a significant decrease was observed in the experimental group. For flexibility, the sit-and-reach test showed a significant increase in the experimental group. For depression, self-esteem and body satisfaction, the difference between the two groups was not significant. Conclusion: Based on the above results, the effects of a spine correction exercise program produced a decrease in Cobb's angle and an increase in the sit-and-reach test for flexibility. This program is not expensive and is convenient, and thus has been identified as a good nursing intervention for correcting scoliosis.

Purpose: Cancer patients experience a range of physical and psychological sequelae. Consistent nursing support should be provided along the cancer treatment path. This study aimed to i)examine the effects of a telephone counseling program after discharge on perceived health, psychological well-being, and satisfaction with nursing services, and ii)describe symptom distress and their coping methods. Method: The study was a quasi-experimental design with a non-equivalent pre-post test. The sample included 20 women with gynecologic cancer in the experimental group and the same in the control group from a university hospital in Seoul. The telephone intervention was given once from 5 to 7 days after the chemotherapy. The General Well-Being Schedule and Symptom Distress Scale were used. Result: An effect from telephone counseling was found only in the vitality subscale of psychological well-being. Other subscores, perceived health, or satisfaction with nursing services did not differ between the two groups. Pain, skin change, decreased appetite, and constipation were the major symptoms and a relatively few coping strategies were utilized. Conclusion: Protocol of telephone counseling led by a nurse needs to be further developed in regard to best timing, amount, and target effects for follow-up care of gynecologic cancer patients.

Kim, Hack-Sun ; Jun, Myung-Hee ; Park, Young-Im ; Uhm, Dong-Choon ; Kim, Dal-Sook ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 14, issue 2, 2008, Pages 305~314
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.305
Purpose: The purpose of the study was to examine whether anthropometric estimations can be reliable methods to assess body fat of university students, by identifying the relationship between anthropometric estimates, which have been thought to be not reliable but economic, and Bio-electric impedance analysis (BIA), which has been known to be reliable but expensive. Method: Twenty-one male and 20 female university students were recruited. The in Body 3.0 scale and GIF-891DX were used for BIA. Body fat was estimated with 12 circumferences, 9 skin-fold thicknesses (SFT), and applying 4 equations (Kim's,
, Siri's and Wilmore's). Their relationships were examined by Pearson Correlation. Result: 11 circumferences and 9 SFT in the male while 5 circumferences and 3 SFT in the female correlated with the body fat on BIA(p<05). The waist circumference had the strongest correlation to the BIA in both males and females. The abdomonial SFT for the male and scapular SFT for the female had the strongest relationship of SFT to BIA. Body fat estimated from more than two different equations significantly correlated with those measured from BIA (p<.05). Conclusion: Anthropometric estimations could be a useful method to get reliable and valid data for body fat of the university students inexpensively.

Kim, Ji-Soo ; Lee, Ae-Ran ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 14, issue 2, 2008, Pages 315~323
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2008.14.2.315
Purpose: This study was performed to compare mothers' health promotion behaviors between those who have a disabled child and those who have a healthy child. Method: The participants were 243 mothers from 24 Daycare Centers for Children with Disabilities and 310 mothers from 5 child daycare centers. Mothers with preschool children completed self-report questionnaires, asking about health behaviors for preschool children. Data from these surveys was analyzed using the ANOVA, t-test, and
-test with the SPSS 15.0 Win program. Result: Mothers with disabled children showed less health promotion behaviors than the mothers' of children without disabilities. Two sub-categories, activity-exercise and health perception-health management pattern, showed significant differences between the two groups. In addition, mothers' health behaviors for disabled children were significantly different according to the children's age, mothers' employed status, and number of children in the family. Conclusion: These results suggest that mothers with disabled preschool children are likely to practice less health promotion behaviors with their children compared to others. These findings suggest that health promotion support programs for mothers with disabled children should be developed and offered. For effective intervention, pediatric nurses also need to be involved in the health of disabled children.
