Abstract:
Despite research and public education, AIDS remains a world-wide-health problem and a challenge for human service workers. Problems associated with HIV/AIDS include mandatory testing, insurance, housing, employment discrimination, and public fear. Fear of homosexuality, contagion, and AIDS has produced anxieties in health care workers. In past research, health care workers have showed a reduction in stress, perceived risk, and discomfort following HIV/AIDS education. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of HIV/AIDS education on the anxiety of nursing students. In the study nursing students (n=39) were tested for their anxiety level about HIV/AIDS before and after an educational presentation. The presentation focused on HIV/AIDS epidemiology, nursing process, and case management. Spielberger's State-Trait-Anxiety Inventory showed reduced trait anxiety and reduced state anxiety. This study suggests that education in clinical nursing practice does reduce fears and anxieties associated with HIV/AIDS. The study supports the literature and reinforces the idea that education about this disease must be a part of nursing education both in basic educational prograrms and continuing educational seminars.
