Many hours are invested by faculty designing learning modules and

by students completing activities designed to foster learning.

Measuring blood pressure is a precise procedure that when performed

incorrectly can lead to inaccurate diagnosis and improper treatment.

Therefore, a sound theoretical knowledge base and compliance with

the procedure is important. The purposes of this descriptive study

are to measure retention of theoretical knowledge for measuring

blood pressure, compliance in using an approved procedure, and to

identify other factors influencing compliance/non-compliance.



The randomly selected sample will consist of sophomore, junior and

and senior level nursing students (n=150). Questionnaires measuring

theoretical knowledge, identifying factors related to compliance/

non-compliance, and collecting demographic information will be

administered to the subjects following an observation of their

technique for measuring blood pressure. Descriptive statistics will

be used for data analysis. The study is currently in progress.

The results of this study will determine if a learning module

designed using experiential learning theory is effective in teaching

the theory and fostering long term compliance. It will also make

educators aware of other factors that influence compliance/

non-compliance in nursing students.
