Kim, In-Sook ; Jang, Youn-Kyoung ; Park, Su-Ho ; Song, So-Hyeon ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 17, issue 3, 2011, Pages 337~345
DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2011.17.3.337
Purpose: This study was done to identify the relationship among Critical Thinking Disposition (CTD), stress of clinical practice and clinical competence in Korean nursing students. Methods: Participants were 407 baccalaureate nursing students (3rd and 4th grades) in Korea. Variables included CTD, stress of clinical practice, clinical competence, and demographic variables. Data was analyzed by frequencies, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson`s correlation and multiple regression. Results: Clinical competence positively correlated with CTD, but negatively correlated with stress of clinical practice. The regression model explained 25.6% of clinical competence. The significant predictors of clinical competence were intellectual eagerness, intellectual fairness in CTD, conflict with patients, and clinical environment in stress of clinical practice. Conclusions: CTD and stress of clinical practice contribute to nursing student`s clinical competence. Therefore, efforts to encourage nursing student`s CTD, increase stress management skills, especially in conflict with patients, and build a supportive clinical environment should be made to strengthen clinical competence.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2011.17.3.365
Purpose: This study aimedto develop a structural equation model on the relationship among ego-resilience, and teaching effectiveness on clinical education, stress coping style, perceived family support, and satisfaction of clinical practice in nursing students in order to increase the satisfaction of clinical practice. Methods: The subjects were 399 undergraduate nursing students enrolled in 7 universities and participating in 10 clinical practice setting areas in 5 cities in South Korea. The research was conducted from December 5th, 2009 to February 20th, 2010. The structural equation model was used to perform the analysis with the statistics program of SPSS win 17.0 and AMOS 5.0. Results: Teaching effectiveness and family support showed a direct effect on satisfaction of clinical practice, while ego-resilience and stress coping styles showed an indirect effect. The biggest total effect on satisfaction of clinical practice was teaching effectiveness followed by family support, ego-resilience, and stress coping styles respectively, which accounted for 50.9%. Conclusion: Based on outcomes of this study, the proposed model allows better understanding of the satisfaction of clinical practice. This result implies that strategies or intervention programs enhancing extrinsic protection factors, motivation factors, and intrinsic protection factors should be considered. In addition, a structural support system for increasing the satisfaction level of clinical practice in nursing students should also be considered.

DOI : 10.5977/JKASNE.2011.17.3.395
Purpose: The purpose of this paper was to analyze research papers using movies and to introduce a practical instruction in cinema education for nurse educators in Korea. Method: The computerized database of PubMed, Google scholar, NDSL, CINAHL, and PsychINFO were used to generate relevant literature. Sixteen studies were published between 1990 and 2011 and were included in this review. These papers were analyzed using the matrix method suggested by Garrad (2007). Results: The first paper using movies in nursing education was performed in 1995. There were 16 studies on this issue and classified into one qualitative and 15 quantitative research. Because psychiatric mental health nursing was the main course, movies relating to mental illness were mainly considered. Most papers used questionnaires developed by researchers and discussions regarding the course. The key findings in these papers were all positive. Conclusion: The critics and syntheses in these papers emerged into seven overarching merits of cinema education and that lead to conduct cinema education to deepen students` understanding and to evoke empathy, critical thinking, entertainment, and intimacy. In addition, cinema education was safe and economical. This study recommends discovering suitable films and developments in both instruction process and educational evaluation tools.
