Nursing students are at high risk of exposure to vaccine-preventable diseases such as seasonal influenza. However, due to the limited number of studies conducted in this area, the prevalence and factors affecting annual seasonal influenza vaccination (ASIV) uptake remain unclear. This was a large-scale cross-sectional survey study conducted among 902 nursing students in different years of study. The questionnaire was developed based on the Health Belief Model (HBM), and logistic regression was used to determine the predictors of ASIV uptake...

It is believed that midwives are at the front line of the disaster management team and should be prepared for providing care to mothers and children. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the midwifery students' basic educational needs for taking the role of an assistant in disaster situations...

AIM: To establish the connection between values, competencies, selected job characteristics and evidence-based practice use. BACKGROUND: Nurses rarely apply evidence-based practice in everyday work. A recent body of research has looked at various variables explaining the use of evidence-based practice, but not values and competencies. DESIGN: A cross-sectional, non-experimental quantitative explorative research design. METHODS: Standardized instruments were used (Nurse Professional Values Scale-R, Nurse Competence Scale, Evidence-Based Practice Beliefs and Implementation Scale)...

In North American society people have diverse cultural and religious affiliations. The nursing profession underlines the importance of including patients’ spirituality in giving holistic care. However, studies suggest that the majority of nurses do not include the spiritual dimension on a regular basis. Therefore, we thought it important to focus on undergraduate nurses’ understanding of spirituality as well as on their perception of the nurse’s role in this area. We conducted a quantitative and descriptive cross-sectional study, which gave us an overall view of the students’ perceptions...

In this study, we draw attention to time-competing activities and psychological variables as impeding or enabling factors of physical activity behavior in 55-to-70-year-old Germans. Cross-sectional data was used (n=4,891). Results indicate that paid work has a negative relationship with sufficient physical activity. Persons who provide nursing care seem to be motivated to achieve sufficient physical activity behavior, but do not meet established recommendations. Active citizenship positively relates to higher physical activity levels...
