Title:
Nursing’s Great
Abstract:
Nursing’s Great
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Ellis-Kempner, Betsy
P.I. Institution Name:University of Vermont
Enrollments in Vermont nursing programs declined 36% in the last six years where there already existed a 34% nurse vacancy between 1992 and 1998. These statistics prompted the development of a video presentation, “Nursing Great,” to promote and market nursing as a desirable career. The target audience is 2nd through 5th graders in an attempt to influence children’s perceptions of nursing as a career choice before high school. Using peer communication, five children of nurses talk about the role of the nurse. Nurses are represented as both men and women working in medsurg., surgery, office, visiting nursing, and as a nursing professor. The children discuss their parents’ work, men in nursing, nursing as a science, and academic preparation to become a nurse. The children are enthusiastic and speak positively about choosing nursing as a career.
