Abstract:

Poster presented on: Tuesday, July 23, 2013, Monday, July 22, 2013

Purpose: This study was to identify the level of empathy and professional attitude and explore the relationships among study variables in junior and senior nursing students in Korea.

 Methods: With a correlational survey design, 200 junior and senior nursing students who had clinical experiences were recruited via convenience sampling. A structured study questionnaire was administered including Korean version of Jefferson empathy scale for Health care professional student, Davis’ Interpersonal Relationship Index (IRI), and professional attitude for nursing students

 Results: Nursing students reported high level of empathy from the two empathy scales, and showed high scores for attitude toward nursing profession. Empathy score was associated with grade of nursing students but not with age, gender, motivation toward nursing science, and academic grade (GPA). By correlation analysis, there was significant relationship between empathy and professional attitude.

Conclusion: These results suggest that empathy is associated with nursing education curriculum, and the curriculum contributes incrementally to empathy for students. Implications and suggestions for further research will be discussed.
