DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.383
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between marital satisfaction and the quality of life for women and men who live in a rural area in Korea through an international marriage. Methods: A descriptive correlational research design was used. Ninety-one women and 56 men were surveyed from May 1st., 2007 to April 6th., 2008. Data were analyzed by t-test, Pearson's correlation coefficients, and Fisher's exact test. Two types of questionnaires were used: Marital satisfaction scale (MSS) and WHO quality of life-brief (WHOQOL-BREF). Result: There is a gap between men's age and women's in the average of their marriage ; 37 vs 24. In addition, men's marital satisfaction was much higher than women's (t =2.16, p=.032) and quality of life was also higher than women's (t=-0.85, p=.005). According to this survey, therefore, it has been shown that there is a positive correlation between marital satisfaction and the quality of life (r =.435, p<.001). Conclusion: In order to improve the quality of life, marital satisfaction should be promoted by practical family nursing programs and it is necessary for the internationally married women to be continuously provided with language education and cultural awareness.

DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.393
Purpose: This study was conducted to test the effect of a Career Search Program on career search efficacy, career search behavior, and career decision making for nursing students. Methods: A non-equivalent pre-post test of a quasi-experimental design was used. Fifty first grade nursing students participated in the study with 22 in the experimental group and 28 in the control group. We used a Career Search Program which was held 6 times over 6 weeks, 90 minutes per session. Descriptive statistics,
-test, and independent t-test were used for statistical analysis with SPSS 19.0. Results: There were significant increases in career search efficacy (t=2.07, p=.044) and career search behavior(t=2.65, p=.011) in the experimental group compared to the control group. However, career decision making was not significantly changed (t=0.96, p=.342). Conclusion: These results suggest that a Career grade Search Program has an effect on increasing career search efficacy and career search behavior in first grade nursing students. In addition, more programs to impact career decision making should be developed for nursing college students.

The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 18, issue 3, 2012, Pages 403~412
DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.403
Purpose: This study compared the effects of three oral care methods on thirst and oral status in patients after general anesthesia surgery. Methods: Sixty five surgical patients were prospectively randomized into three groups. Each group received one of three oral care methods: wet water gauze, frozen water gauze, or frozen normal saline gauze. The outcomes of thirst and oral status were assessed three times by trained investigators blinded to the oral care methods. Assessment times were right after a participant's arrival to his/her room, and at 30 and 60 minutes after the pre-test. Results: The levels of thirst and oral status were significantly improved as time passed in all three oral care methods. While the level of thirst was not significantly different between the three groups, the level of oral status was significantly better with wet water gauze than frozen gauze groups, soaked in either water or normal saline. Conclusion: We recommend nurses choose one of three oral care methods based on patients' preferences since all three oral care methods showed similar effects in improving postoperative patients' levels of thirst and oral status.

DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.424
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the disaster experience (accidents, education etc) and the concern for disaster preparedness of college students. Methods: This research design was a descriptive study. Data were collected from November 1, 2011 to December 30, 2011 and analyzed by the SPSS PASW statistics 18.0 program. Results: There were statistical significances in major (p<.050), grade(p<.001), and a completed disaster class(p<.001) between general characteristics and concern for disaster preparedness. The major disaster events that occurred from 2003 to 2010 in Korea were the 2007 Taean oil spill (85.4%), the 2003 Daegu subway fire (82.7%), and the 2008 Sungnyemun fire (62.9%). The possible disaster events in Korea were hurricanes, floods, fires (including wildfire), and the shutdown of communication lines. Subjects learned about cardiopulmonary resuscitation (18.2%), first aid for bleeding and fractures (17.8%), a fire drill (14.3%), and an escape drill for an earthquake (14.0%). They wanted to learn the fire drill (11.33%), the escape drill for an earthquake (9.7%), a war drill (9.0%), a disaster confrontation drill on the subway (8.6%), and a fire and explosion evacuation drill (8.4%). Half of subjects were not prepared with emergency supplies for disasters because they thought that a disaster would not occur. Conclusion: It is necessary to develop the disaster educational programs according to subject's demands in Korea.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify social support networks for each life-cycle stage of adults. Method: A total of 1,047 subjects included 454 young adults, 262 middle-aged adults and 331 senior adults. Data were collected using Oh's Korean Version Norbeck's Social Support Questionnaire (NSSQ), and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, and ANOVA. Result: For the young adults, parents were the top and second priority as important social support resources, the third was siblings, and then friends. For the middle-aged, spouse was the first priority as an important social support resource, while the second and the third were children. For the senior adults, children ranked from the top to the seventh priority. The mean number of social support resources was 13.23 for the young adult, 12.93 for the middle-aged and 5.30 for the senior adults. Social support networks of the young adults significantly differed according to gender and marital status. That of the middle-aged significantly differed according to family size. In addition, that of the senior adults was significantly different according to marital status, economic status, religion and family size. Conclusion: It is essential to consider social support networks for each life-cycle stage of adults when making a social support intervention program.
Knowledge, Self-confidence, and Intention of BLS of Clinical Nurses Who Work at Small-medium Sized Hospitals
Uhm, Dongchoon ; Jun, Myunghee ; Park, Young Im ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 18, issue 3, 2012, Pages 446~455
DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.446
Purpose: This study was performed to investigate the level of knowledge, self-confidence, and intention of basic life support (BLS) and identify the reason why clinical nurses lack confidence to initiate BLS at the cardiac arrest scene. Method: A cross-sectional survey was used with questionnaires which authors developed; a BLS knowledge questionnaire and a tool for measuring the level of self-confidence and intention of performing BLS. The subjects consisted of 396 nurses by convenient sampling from ten small to medium sized hospitals in Korea. Data were collected from March to August, 2008. Data were analyzed by the SPSS/WIN 14.0 program with t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson correlation coefficients. Results: The percentile score of BLS knowledge was 40.6%, self-confidence 62.1%, and intention 73.0%. Clinical career rather than BLS knowledge has a significant effect on increasing the self-confidence and intention of performing BLS. A major reason for not performing BLS was lack of confidence in operating an AED (automatic external defibrillator). Conclusion: An effective and continuous training program especially including AED for CPR should be provided with clinical nurses to increase self-confidence and intention of performing BLS and to improve the survival of cardiac arrest patients in the hospital.

DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.456
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the level of role expectation of school health teachers recognized by elementary students and nursing college students and to compare role expectations between the two groups. Methods: The participants in this study were 323 elementary school students from 2 schools and 112 nursing students from 2 universities. Data was collected by a structured self-administered questionnaire and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, and ANOVA by the SPSS 19.0 program. Results: The elementary students and nursing students recognized health service and health education as the most important role expectation for school health teachers. The role expectation of nursing students was higher than those of elementary students. The elementary students' points of view for role expectation were statistically different according to their health status. Conclusion: To improve the school health teacher's role, understanding the client's expectation is necessary. In addition to the role of health service and education, counseling for elementary students should be developed.

The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 18, issue 3, 2012, Pages 474~485
DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.474
Purpose: The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses [QSEN] initiative group has identified six competencies (patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, and informatics) for pre-licensure nursing education along with related knowledge, skills, and attitudes for each competency. The purpose of this article is to illustrate a teaching strategy that uses films to demonstrate the QSEN competencies in undergraduate nursing students. Method: A literature review was conducted to define QSEN competencies, and six feature-length commercial movies were selected through a systematic process. We provided film titles and their synopses that can be useful in teaching the QSEN six competencies to undergraduate nursing students. Results: Patch Adams for patient-centered care, Wit for teamwork and collaboration, Lorenzo's Oil for evidence-based practice, Am
lie for quality improvement, Blindness and The Island for informatics can be applied in nursing classroom practices. Conclusion: Establishing the connection between QSEN competencies and cinenurducation is novel, yet it would provide a unique opportunity for nurse educators seeking to overcome the challenge of better preparing future nurses. In future studies, additional films should be considered to enhance nursing educational strategies.

DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.499
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to develop a Simulation-based Integrated Clinical Practice Program (SICPP) for nursing students and to identify the effect of this program. Methods: A non-equivalent pre-post test of quasi-experimental design was used. One hundred thirty-one nursing students participated in the study with 69 in the experimental group and 62 in the control group. We developed a SICPP taking 3 hours per session, once per week for 10 weeks. Data were analyzed using the SPSS 19.0 program with descriptive statistics,
-test, independent t-test. Results: There were significant increases in nursing clinical competence (t=2.72, p=.008) and critical thinking(t=2.18, p=.031) in the experimental group compared to the control group. However, there was no difference in the problem solving process (t=0.36, p=.720) between the experimental and control groups. Conclusion: These results indicate that a SICPP can be used as an integrative program for enhancing the core performance of nursing students. However, a SICPP to promote the problem solving process needs to be more developed and research related with SICPP is further needed.

Choi, Keum Bong ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 18, issue 3, 2012, Pages 522~532
DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.522
Purpose: The purposes of this study were to develop an elderly care nursing education program and evaluate its effect on knowledge, attitudes and nursing performance of nurses toward older adults. Methods: A quasi-experimental study with a non-equivalent control group pretest-posttest design was used. Participants were recruited from two geriatric hospitals. The sample consisted of an intervention group (n=29) that participated in the educational program and a control group (n=30). The data were collected prior to and 6 weeks after the intervention using self-administered questionnaires. Data analyses utilized
-test, Fisher's exact probability test, and t-test. Results: After the intervention, knowledge and nursing performance about the elderly care increased significantly in the experimental group compared to the control group. However, there was no statistically significant difference between the groups in their attitudes toward the elderly. Conclusion: Findings indicate that to provide better nursing care to the elderly, nurses need to be able to practically apply the knowledge they have acquired from the elder-care nursing education programs in hands-on situations. To achieve this, nurses should work to change their personal attitudes about the elderly. Also, evidence-based guidelines for elderly nursing care, administrative support of institutions, and multidisciplinary approaches are required.

Lee, Sun Hee ; Yoo, Jae Soon ;
The Journal of Korean Academic Society of Nursing Education, volume 18, issue 3, 2012, Pages 533~541
DOI : 10.5977/jkasne.2012.18.3.533
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify variables influencing task performance of wound ostomy continence nurses (WOCN). Methods: Data were collected from 80 WOCN in Korea from September to October 2011 using a self-reported questionnaire. Variables consisted of task performance, empowerment, professional autonomy, job satisfaction and job-related variables. Data were analyzed by frequencies, t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient and stepwise multiple regression. Results: Professional autonomy was a major predictor of task performance of WOCN (F=37.37, p=<.001). Empowerment(F=33.10, p=.001) and completion of the professional education course for wound ostomy continence nursing WOCN(F=7.46, p=.008) were the other significant predictors of task performance. The regression model explained 45.3% of task performance. Conclusion: Professional autonomy, empowerment and completion of the professional education course contribute to task performance of WOCN. These findings have important implications for organizations hoping to achieve the maximum potential of WOCN's professional role. Therefore, strategies for reinforcement of professional autonomy, empowerment, and completion of professional education course are necessary for WOCN working in South Korea.
