What high school students think of a nursing career: a survey of Dade County senior high schools.
J Nurs Educ. 1993 Apr; 32(4):157-62.JN

Abstract

Using a cross-sectional design, we surveyed 700 10th and 11th-grade students in Dade County, Florida, to examine high school students' opinions of a nursing career and the relationships among students' opinions and several variables. Of a possible range of opinion scores from 14 to 56, the mean opinion score for the sample was 40.92 (SD = 7.8). While age had no significant correlation with nursing opinion scores, they were influenced significantly by gender, the students' desired occupation, and the opinions of parents, friends, and guidance counselors. Although only 28 (7%) of the students selected nursing as their desired occupation, 119 (24.5%) considered nursing one of their alternatives prior to making a decision. These findings have important implications for the recruitment of high school graduates into nursing.
