Abstract

The intentions of nursing students toward working with older adults are similar to those of nurses in general. Several authors have suggested that educational interventions are the key to reversing the reluctance of nursing students to work with elderly persons. In this longitudinal study, the intentions of 39 junior baccalaureate nursing students were examined at three points: prior to any treatment, after clinical work with aged persons in an institutional setting, and after clinical work with aged persons in a community setting. The analysis of variance model run on this data revealed no significant differences in students' intentions as a consequence of their clinical experiences.
