An Analysis on Nursing Students' Clinical Situation for Development of Oriental Nursing Practice Education
Yang, Kyung-Hee ; Lee, Gyoung-Wan ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 15, issue 1, 2009, Pages 5~14
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.005
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to develop clinical education of Oriental Nursing. Methods: The subjects were one hundred and ninety-three students who have completed clinical practice. The questionnaires were composed of experience type and Oriental Nursing practices(25 items), level of satisfaction(20 items), difficulty level of practices(6 items), and preparation level of practice instructor(5 items). The reliability were Chronbach's
=.84, .86, .74, and .93 respectively. Frequencies, percentage, t-test, and Pearson's Correlation was used in data analysis using SPSS PC+ 11.0. Results: Nursing students recognized that they had difficulties caused by a lack of knowledge of Oriental medicine, of learning the uniqueness of the nurse's role and lack of nurse's enthusiasm in teaching students. However, they were confident in preparing acupuncture and implementing Moxibustion, large Moxibustion, Bu-Hang therapy, aroma therapy and on administration of medicines and control of temperature of the medicines, exercise and rehabilitation. Therefore, instructors should train nursing students by developing a unique Oriental Nursing practice and reinforcement of nurses' independent and cooperative roles through the acquisition of Oriental Medical knowledge and terminology. It is necessary that they develop an educational program based on Oriental Nursing practice, perform consistently within the program and train its teaching faculty and instructors.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.015
Purpose: This study was performed to identify the level of career identity and clinical competency and the relationships between them in nursing students. Method: Subjects were junior students of 2 colleges in Daegu(N=217). A self-rating questionnaire included demographic data, career identity of nursing students and the clinical competency Korean scale. We received consents from teachers and students. The data was analyzed by frequency, percentage, t-test, ANOVA and Pearson's correlation coefficient using the SPSS 12.0 Program. Result: The mean score of career identity was 31.90 points and clinical competency was 145.13. Career identity showed a significant difference in the age, satisfaction of college entrance and satisfaction of clinical practice. Clinical competency showed a significant difference in the sex, marriage, satisfaction of college entrance and satisfaction of clinical practice. The data showed a negative correlation between career identity and clinical competency. Conclusion: It is necessary to find affecting factors on career identity of nursing students and to develop objective tools for clinical competency and to improve clinical competency programs.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.032
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the trend of nursing research by analyzing the doctoral dissertations in one college of nursing in Korea. Method: The areas of research, the methodological characteristics, and theories used in the research were explored in all doctoral dissertations (n=120) published from 1989 to 2006. Result: Mainly "Nursing" has been studied (44.9%) among four meta-paradigms of nursing science. The "client" domain (46.7%) and the "practice" domain (41.7%) were most frequently studied in type of nursing knowledge. The main purpose of the thesis was to develop nursing interventions and examine the effectiveness of the practice (40.8%) in quantitative research. Almost all (94.7%) of the qualitative dissertation studies were to explore phenomena in the nursing field. Almost half of the dissertations (43.9%) were an experimental design, 34.7% were a model construction, and 15.8% were a qualitative design. The majority of dissertations (83.3%) were to apply the specific theory and almost half (43.8%) studied borrowed theories from other fields. Conclusion: It is necessary to develop more rigorous and various research designs such a longitudinal design, or randomized controlled trial and this will lead to expanding the body of nursing knowledge.

The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 15, issue 1, 2009, Pages 44~52
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.044
Purpose: This study was done to investigate emergency nurses' perceived competency and frequency of 17 educational interventions. Methods: A mail survey was administered to a convenience sample of 744 nurses in 143 emergency departments across the nation. Results: The mean score for overall competency was 2.90 out of 4. The competency score for staff education (2.40 out of 4) was lower than that of patient/family education (3.40 out of 4). The mean score for overall frequency was 3.34 out of 5. The frequency score for staff education (2.27 out of 5) was lower than that of patient/family education (4.39 out of 5). Emergency nurses' perceived competency was significantly correlated with frequency of educational interventions. Overall competency score was different according to the nurses' age, education, position, hospital experience, emergency experience and the type of emergency department. Conclusions: Although the overall competency is high, the competency on some areas of educational intervention remains insufficient. Educational programs to reinforce emergency nurses' educational competency and evidenced based protocols on education should be developed.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.053
Purpose: This study was conducted to evaluate the need for education for emergency care in nursing homes. Method: 312 people who were engaged in caring for the elderly at nursing homes in D-metropolitan c! ity answered the questionnaires about the experiences, the need, and the ideal methods of education for basic emergency care, from Jul. 1. 2007 to Jul. 30. 2007. Result: 69.9% were female. Only 7.1% were nurses and the rest did not have majors in the medical field. 83.0% had experienced education for emergency care, and 89.2%, 78.4% and 44.8% of them had been educated about cardiopulmonary resuscitation, airway obstruction care, and fracture/sprain/dislocation care respectively. Fifty-three who had not experienced education answered 'no opportunity' as a cause of non-education. The need for emergency care education was 4.53/5.00, and the desire to receive education was 2.81/3.00. Mainly workers wanted to be educated abo! ut airway obstruction (88.1%), and breathing assistance & cardiac massage (72.4%). Workers preferred to be educated 1-2 times per year for 2-3 subjects, through programs including both lecture and practice. Conclusion: It is essential to create an adequate program and apply it to the people engaged in caring for the elderly.

Kim, Shin-Mi ; Lee, Yun-Jung ; Kim, Duck-Hee ; Kim, Sook-Young ; Ahn, Hye-Young ; Yu, Su-Jeong ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 15, issue 1, 2009, Pages 62~71
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.062
Purpose: The present study was performed to identify the perception, attitude, and knowledge regarding the use of physical restraints among nursing personnel working at long-term care facilities. Method: 289 nurses, nurse aids and private caregivers working at 13 wards from 7 facilities participated in the survey. Perception, attitude and knowledge regarding the use of physical restraints were evaluated using the Perceptions of Restraints Use Questionnaire developed by Evans and Strumpf(1993) and Physical Restraint Questionnaire suggested by Janelli, et al(2006). Results: Wrist restraints were used the most frequently. The perception score regarding the use of physical restraints was 3.35, which is a moderate value. Study respondents considered 'safety measure' and 'safe use of a medical device' as the most important aspects when applying physical restraints to elderly. The respondents reported physical restraints were therapeutic at least to some degree but knowledge level about physical restraints of the respondents was rather low. Conclusion: Perception and attitude toward physical restraints were identified. The lack in knowledge about physical restraints needs to be addressed for more efficient use of them.

The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 15, issue 1, 2009, Pages 81~88
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.081
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the behavioral responses to a robot pet in pre-school children. Method: This activity for children was conducted for 5 days at a kindergarten and each session lasted 30 minutes. In order to measure children's temperament, Chun Heeyoung's Temperament Rating Scale was used. In addition, to investigate the behavioral responses to a robot pet, each session was videotaped. The videotape data was analyzed according to child-robot interaction. Result: On the average, subjects scored highest in emotionality and lowest in activity for the temperamental subscale. The videotape data revealed verbal, positive nonverbal, and negative nonverbal interaction. Conclusions: These results suggest that child-robot interaction reflects temperamental characteristics, therefore, to develop a nursing intervention program using a robot, it is necessary to consider individual differences and recreational factors to grab children's interest.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.100
Purpose: This study explored the relationship between types of gender role identity and health behaviors in 500 adults. Method: Data was collected with self-reporting questionnaire forms from April 23 to May 4, 2007. using the Korean Gender Role Identity Inventory and Health Behavior Assessment Tool. Results: The mean (SD) was 2.65 (0.42) for gender role identity, and 2.61 (0.38) for health behaviors. The subjects were classified into four gender role identity types; 30.4% in undifferentiated, 27.8% in androgyny, 22.4% in masculinity, and 19.4% in femininity. Four gender role identity types of subjects showed significant different levels of health behaviors (F=40.33, p<.001). The androgyny type subjects reported the highest mean of health behaviors scores, and the undifferentiated type subjects had the lowest mean. There were significant differences in health behaviors according to subjects' general characteristics, such as age, marital status, perceived health status, and smoking (p<.005). Conclusion: There is a need to make changes in family, school, and society toward better environments for helping adults develop desirable gender role identity. In addition, the gender role identity in adults has to be considered in establishing healthy lifestyles and developing health promotion programs.

Hong, Sung-Kyung ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 15, issue 1, 2009, Pages 109~119
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.109
Purpose: This study was done to develop the concept of resilience focusing on cancer patients in Korea. Methods: This study was done in three phases sugggested in the Hybrid Model; theoretical phase, fieldwork phase, and analytical phase. Eight cancer patients participated in the fieldwork phase. Results: The antecedent of the concept of resilience was the crisis or adversity that threatens life or changes the quality of life. The attributes of resilience were psychosocial, relational, situational confrontation and faith (philosophical) characteristics. 1) Psychosocial : self worth, self efficacy, self-confidence, independence, optimistic & positive mind, strong will, and responsibility, 2) Relational : relation-oriented, intimacy, and social interests, 3) Situational confrontation : appraisal of stress situation, problem-oriented coping, and ability to applicate a new situation, 4) Faith (philosophical) : the belief that self-knowledge is valuable, finding positive meanings, religious belief, a belief that lives are worthwhile and meaningful, and a balanced perspective of one's life. The consequences of resilience were acceptance of adversity, getting through one's dread and apprehensions, and gratitude & sharing life. The contributing factor of resilience is positive family support. Conclusion: The concept of resilience is necessary in order to manage cancer patients for promoting quality of life so that its application may have a positive impact on the patients care.

Kang, Jeong-Hee ; Bang, Kyung-Sook ; Ko, Sung-Hee ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 15, issue 1, 2009, Pages 120~127
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2009.15.1.120
Purpose: In the literature power analysis in experimental studies is often executed and reported falsely. This descriptive study was done to promote the correct application of the Cohen(1988)'s power analysis method. Method: Articles of experimental studies from a nursing journal were selected and reviewed to examine the uses of and the reports on the power analysis process. Also, the appropriate power analysis process was discussed with an example of the most common experimental design, an independent two-group design with t test analysis plan. Result: Around half the experimental studies examined reported that they carried out power analysis. Cohen's method was the most frequently utilized but with accuracy in question. Conclusion: Power analysis to estimate sample size is the interplay between alpha, power, and effect size, and other factors in the case of t test analysis. Researchers should have a clear understanding of how to apply the Cohen's power analysis method so they do not produce poorly estimated sample sizes.
