DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.186
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the changes of self-esteem and leadership scores in nursing students during two years. Method: The subjects were 233 nursing students in their first year in 2007, and 257 in their third year in 2009. Data were collected 2 times for the same subjects, in 2007 and 2009 respectively, with the same structured questionnaires. Result: Satisfaction for major and interpersonal relationships of nursing students was significantly increased in the third year over the first year. Self-esteem and leadership scores were significantly increased in the third year over the first year (t=5.48, p<.001, t=5.63, p<.001). Self-esteem and leadership scores increased significantly according to satisfaction degree, interpersonal relationship and year. Self-esteem was positively related to leadership (r=.50, p<.001). Conclusion: The result of this study may show the increase in self-esteem and leadership of nursing students relevant with their year of nursing. This finding suggests the importance of satisfaction and interpersonal relationships to increase self-esteem and leadership.
Review of Literature and Implication for Nursing Education: Cinemeducation
Oh, Jin-A ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 194~201
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.194
Purpose: Recently teaching nursing to undergraduate students has been based on the constructive teaching method to achieve the core nursing competency. Therefore, non-traditional teaching methods should be introduced for a stimulated interaction between the lecturer and students and to increase information retention and interest in nursing. The purpose of this paper was to review current issues related to the use of cinema in nursing education. Method: A literature review was conducted to grasp the definition of cinemeducation and to identify the uses, merits, and demerits of using cinema in nursing education. Conclusion: Cinemeducation is an innovative approach to teaching multi-cultural diversity in medicine and nursing. It is possible to conduct cinemeducation to deepen student's understanding of cross-cultural issues and to evoke imagination, empathy, and narrative. Movies are funny, entertaining, and readily enjoyed by learners. Since individuals portrayed in movies are not real, learners can be more honest and objective about their reactions to these characters. In addition, movies as instructional media are economical. I would like to suggest more curriculum development for the use of movies.

Park, Jeong-Hye ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 202~212
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.202
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the effectiveness of the JigsawⅣ cooperative learning in a facilitative communication class of nursing students. Achievement, communication skill, self-directed learning and experience during the class were measured. Method: This study was a pretest and posttest design with two subject groups. 43 students were in experimental (JigsawⅣ) group and 47 ones were in control (general small discussion) group. Classes were conducted over a 6-week period. The collected data was analyzed by the SPSS 12.0 program. Result: After taking part in the educational program, the experimental group had significantly more improvement in communication skill (F=6.81, p=.002) and self-directed learning (F=11.81, p=.000). In addition, the experimental group showed significantly higher scores for concentration in the class (t=2.26, p=.27), positive emotional state (t=3.01, p=.003) and active participation (t=2.78, p=.007) compared to the control group. However, the achievement between the two groups was not significantly different (F=3.29, p=.073). Conclusion: The findings of this study show that JigsawⅣ cooperative learning has positive effects in improvement of communication skill and self-directed learning. Also, students were excited and interested in the class during cooperative learning. Based on these findings, the author suggests developing additional educational programs focusing on nursing students.

Park, Jee-Won ; Kim, Ki-Sook ; Bang, Kyung-Sook ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 213~221
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.213
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the perception of nursing student's preceptorship and to compare the perception on the readiness of clinical competence between nurse preceptors and senior-level nursing students. Method: Data was collected with self-administered questionnaires and analyzed by descriptive statistics and t-test. Study participants were 65 preceptors in one university hospital and 59 nursing students in the same university. Result: The knowledge and satisfaction about preceptorship in the nurse preceptor was 2.66 and 2.70 out of 5. Most of the preceptors (70%) agreed to the students preceptorship program even though the intention to be a preceptor was very low (14.1%). They responded that the merits of student preceptorship were self-development (29.7%) and knowledge acquisition (29.7%), whereas the disadvantages were increased workload (67.2%) and increased stress (23.4%). Requested rewards were monetary reward (44.4%) and promotion (33.3%). In all areas of clinical competence readiness, students' perception score was higher than preceptors'. Conclusion: Nursing education must reexamine current approaches to clinical teaching and seek methods to better prepare future nurses. These findings may serve as a guide to create an ideal students preceptorship program to place a greater emphasis on the competencies desired for providing high quality nursing services.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.222
Purpose: This study was done to examine the effects and retention of the American Heart Association (AHA)'s basic cardiac life support (BLS) training on knowledge and skills of nursing college students. Method: The study was a one group pretest-posttest experimental design. The sample included 41 junior nursing students from D college who participated in an AHA BLS course for healthcare providers in K hospital from January 18 to June 7, 2010. The instruction was based on ‘BLS knowledge and skills'. The data were analyzed with paired t-test using the SPSS/PC 12.0 win. Result: First, knowledge (t=-7.648, p=.000) and skills (t=-12.988, p=.000) were significantly increased immediately after BLS training. Second, knowledge (t=4.098, p=.000) and skills (t=50.350, p=.000) of BLS after 4 months was significantly decreased compared to right after BLS training. Conclusion: Knowledge and skills were decreased 4 months after BLS training. Therefore, retraining in BLS is required within 4 months. To maintain the knowledge and skills of BLS, appropriate renewal time and retraining programs are needed.

The experimental group received the program through MBTI for 30 hours (2 times a week for 15 weeks) while the control group received no treatment except a series of tests. Measures were the MBTI test, nursing professional self-concept scale, and career maturity scale. The data were analyzed with SPSS Win 17.0 program, chi-square test, and t-test. Result: The experimental group which received the program through MBTI had a higher score of nursing professional self-concept and career maturity change than the control group. Conclusion: A small group collaboration learning program through MBTI was effective in increasing nursing professional self-concept and career maturity of nursing college students.
An Analysis of Research on Nursing Practice Education in Korea
Jho, Mi-Young ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 239~248
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.239
Purpose: This study was done to propose the developmental direction of study related to nursing practice education by grasping the trend of study in fundamental and clinical practice. Method: A total of 48 research articles which were published on nursing practice education in Korea from 2002 to 2009 were analyzed with structured analysis forms. Result: Most research was related to clinical practice (n=40). A high percentage of non-experimental research design was related to fundamental practice (75%) and clinical practice (65%). Qualitative research was only used in clinical practice (n=8). Nursing students were predominantly selected as an object of research in fundamental practice (n=6) and clinical practice (n=32). In addition, many of the areas in clinical practice were a general clinical setting without any classification of the specific area. The concepts of research in fundamental practice were related to competency in basic nursing skill and most concepts of research in clinical practice were associated with satisfaction, stress, experience, critical thinking and problem solving ability of the nursing student. Conclusion: There's something to be desired in nursing research related to instructor methods, teaching-learning methods and nursing education programs. Therefore, more specific and continuous research focused on these topics to improve clinical nursing competence of the nursing student is needed.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.283
Purpose: This study aims to assess university freshmen's concern of and satisfaction with their health and body and to analyze this in relation to their health habits, thereby aiding university students in forming sound health habits. Method: The subjects of this study were 338 freshmen at A University, located in B City. The questionnaire had 34 questions and the collected data was analyzed with t-test,
-test, and multiple regressions. Result: The average points of the subjects' health habits were 6.01 for male and 5.65 for female, showing a median range. Concern about health (male 13.63 points, female 13.10 points) and satisfaction with their own body (male 8.26 points, female 7.71 points) showed no significant difference between males and females. Females had more concern about their body (p=.001), and males' satisfaction with health was higher than females', which was statistically significant (p=.0.41). As for factors that have an effect on health habits, male students had health concerns (
=.395), health satisfaction (
=.212), and body concerns (
=-.209), and female students had health concerns (
=.317) and health satisfaction (
=.139). Conclusion: University freshmen are likely to have diverse undesirable health habits and therefore need positive improvement in their health habits.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.292
Purpose: This study examined the effects of Testicular Self-Examination (TSE) small-group education on knowledge, self-efficacy, and performance intention in male college students. Method: A non-equivalent pre-post test of quasi-experimental design was used. Out of 74 male college students selected by convenient sampling, 37 students were assigned to the experimental group and were given TSE small-group education. A 60-minute program consisted of lecture, demonstration, practice, discussion, and Q&A. Result: With an initial homogeneity between the two group, scores of knowledge about testicular cancer (p<.001), self-efficacy for TSE (p<.001), and performance intention of TSE (p<.01) of the experimental group were significantly higher than those of the control group after the intervention. Conclusion: Small group education for TSE was effective in improving knowledge about testicular cancer, self-efficacy for TSE, and intention to perform TSE. Thus, this education program is considered to be useful for testicular cancer prevention and reproductive health promotion in male college students.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.301
Purpose: The study was done to identify variations in Nurses' CPR knowledge, attitude and performance before and after BLS Education. Method: This study was designed to evaluate the differences in Nurses' CPR knowledge, attitude and performance. For the study we selected 167 nurses working in Daegu K University hospital. The study group was given a test before (pre test) and after (post test) BLS education. The BLS education was given by two BLS instructors certified by the American Heart Association, using a DVD and manikin. Result: The results showed a statistically significant difference the nurse's knowledge, belief, emotion and performance but there was no significant difference in their behavior after BLS education. CPR knowledge and performance was higher among emergency room nurses compared to surgical ward nurses. Conclusion: CPR education has shown to have a positive effect on nurses' attitudes towards CPR. It also improved their related knowledge and performance. Therefore, cardiopulmonary education should be given continuously, and different steps of CPR education programs need to be developed in order to fill the knowledge deficiency gap.

Yang, Young-Hee ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 312~320
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.312
Purpose: This study was done to compare the comprehension and knowledge about delirium in nurses working at long-term care hospitals (NLH) with nurses working at a general hospital (NGH). Method: The participants were 191 nurses from a general hospital and 7 long-term care hospitals in Chungnam. The tool for comprehension consisted of the needs and importance of delirium education and the confidence of management for early detection, caring and prevention of delirium. The tool for knowledge of delirium developed by the author consisted of causing factors, symptoms, caring and prevention of delirium. Result: The comprehension of need and importance of delirium education was higher than the confidence for delirium management in participants. NLH nurses had a higher level in comprehension of the need and importance of delirium education and a lower level in confidence of delirium management than NGH nurses. The mean for delirium knowledge was 75.32% for all participants. The knowledge of NLH nurses was significantly lower than those of NGH nurses. All nurses showed low scores in confidence and knowledge of delirium prevention. Conclusion: A systematic educational program for nurses to enhance the ability for assessment, early detection and prevention of delirium for institutionalized elderly patients needs to be developed.

Kim, Duck-Hee ; Kim, Shin-Mi ; Lee, Yun-Jung ; Park, Hern-Rye ; Cho, Myung-Sook ; Koo, Hyo-Jin ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 321~329
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.321
Purpose: The survey was performed to explore nurses' attitudes toward migrant wives in Korean society. Method: Four hundred thirty-eight respondents were recruited from 2 acute hospitals from 2 different geological areas. The attitude inventory to measure attitude toward migrant wives was utilized, which includes 6 factors such as prejudice, reliability, offensiveness, interests, acceptance, and influence. Result: The overall attitude was slightly positive (3.23) and reliability was the only non-positive scoring factor. Among the general characteristics education level showed a significant difference in 5 factors consistently compared to other characteristics. Conclusion: It can be concluded that Korean nurses tend to take a neutral to slightly positive attitude toward migrant wives. Therefore, any influence from nurses' attitudes related to migrant wives can be ignored. Obstacles or barriers which could hamper nursing care for migrant wives need to be identified and studies of strategies to overcome any existing barriers are called for.

The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 16, issue 2, 2010, Pages 339~346
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2010.16.2.339
Purpose: Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) improves survival. However, there have been few studies on the performance of bystander CPR in Korea. This study was done to identify the reasons for being unwilling to perform CPR, and to investigate the factors associated with performing CPR on a stranger in an emergency situation. Method: The participants in this study were 444 local residents. Data were collected by using self-reported questionnaires from May 1 to June 30, 2010. For data analysis, descriptive statistics and multiple logistic regression were performed using SAS version 9.1. Result: Only 32.2% of respondents reported being willing to perform CPR on a stranger. The major reason for not being willing to perform CPR on a stranger was "have no confidence to perform CPR well". From multiple logistic regression analysis, statistically significant predictors of CPR performance on a stranger were found to be a higher educational level (OR=6.11, 95% CI 1.46-25.52), neighbors with angina pectoris or myocardial infarction (OR=6.65, 95% CI 3.93-11.24), and having confidence of performing CPR (OR=3.02, 95% CI1.78-5.14). Conclusion: CPR education (including automatic external defibrillator) should be offered to family members and neighbors. In addition, the Good Samaritan Law must be given wider publicity at the national level.
