간호학생들의 노인 태도에 대한 노인간호학 이론과목의 단기효과*
In this study the short-term effectsof gerontological nursing lectures on attitudes toward elders were examined. Method: Questionnaires developed for Asian cultures were administered before and after the lecture course. The experimental group consisted of 53 junior students in a baccalaureate nursing program, while 27 students comprised the comparison group. Data were analyzed using t-test, paired t-test, chi-square test and repeated measures ANOVA.
No significant difference between the two groups was observed in the experience of living with elders, communication with elders, interest in elders, and religion. Students' evaluation of elder vitality and flexibility improved significantly after taking the lecture course in the experimental group. However, scores of those two dimensions did not pass the neutral point, remaining in the negative realm. Flexibility was evaluated worse than the vitality of the elders. Before the lecture course evaluation of elder generosity was the only positively evaluated dimension. However, there was no significant change in the generosity dimension for either group.
Short-term effects of gerontological nursing lecture were observed in vitality and flexibility of elders. For more positive changes in students' attitudes toward elders, educational strategies need to be devised. Future study should include both short-term and long-term effects.
