Comparison of College Students’ Attitudes and Beliefs about Ideal Careers with Nursing Given the current shortage of nurses, as well as the lack of minority representation in the profession of nursing, it is important to identify expectations and perceptions among college students who are pursuing professional careers. Determining students' attitudes and beliefs about their ideal careers as well as nursing, before they have had any formal nursing education, will facilitate our understanding of what students expect from their ideal careers and why they are attracted to the profession of nursing. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the attitudes and beliefs of college students toward careers and toward the profession of nursing. Additionally, this study examined changes in attitudes and beliefs toward nursing following the completion of an introductory course in nursing. The results may explain why students do or do not initially consider nursing as a career when they enter college and may also help explain why students decide to continue on with more nursing coursework or change to another career goal. Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: This study was guided by Holland’s (1997) Theory of Career Development. Subjects/Methods: Permission was granted to use the data collection instrument developed by Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, Indianapolis, Indiana. The data were collected in a pretest-posttest format from students (n=71) enrolled in Nursing 120, Explorations in Nursing, both during the first class session, before they have received any formal content about the profession of nursing, and during the thirteenth week of class, after they have received all the course content related to nursing. Results/Conclusions: The data have been collected and will be analyzed in the fall of 2002. AN: MN030106
