Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: The purpose of the study was to determine if attendance at a national nursing conference (AORN Congress) made a difference in students' perceptions regarding nursing and professional organizations. Research Aim: To examine differences in pre- and post-survey data related to social support and sense of belonging in nursing students. Hypotheses: There will be a difference in scores related to importance of membership and intention to join a nursing organization, as well as belief that nursing is a good fit. Methodology: Houses assumptions of social support, as well as Hagerty's theory of human relatedness were utilized. A 17-item paper and pencil survey was given to students on the bus ride to and from the conference. Results: A paired-samples t-test reveals statistically significant increases in knowledge related to health care equipment and belief that "nursing is a good fit for me" from Time 1 to Time 2. Limitations included small sample size, selection bias, and testing time points within 36 hours. Nursing Implications: Qualitative data indicates nursing students were positively impacted by the social networking aspect of AORN. Although quantitative data was not statistically significant, qualitative data reveals students felt stronger about joining a professional nursing organization after conference attendance.
