Professional commitment in RN-BSN and basic BSN students: program evaluation.
This program evaluation study compared the outcome of professional commitment in RN-BSN, full-time basic, and part-time basic nursing students using the Health Care Professional Attitude Inventory. Students' responses did not differ on a pretest during the first course of the nursing major. Posttest professional commitment scores differed significantly. Faculty reviewed student performance and considered revising the evaluation plan of the undergraduate nursing program.
