Exploration of Personality Traits of Online and On-Campus Family Nurse Practitioner Students

 

Abstract

Family nurse practitioners are vital to the provision of accessible health care services to all and specifically to underserved areas and populations.  Personality traits and specialty selection have been identified in physicians who elect family practice. However similar data is not available for nursing.  There is a 10% attrition of students who enter on-campus programs for Family Nurse Practitioner education and a 20% attrition rate for online students. Studies have been conducted on learning styles and performance of student’s education styles. However personality traits of the students have not been adequately studied. In order to assure the academic progress of nurses entering advanced education programs, it is imperative to examine variables that affect their academic progression.

Overall objective: To examine the personality traits of Family Nurse Practitioner students online and on-campus

Methodology

Design: Exploratory study.  60 on-campus Family Nurse Practitioner students and 100 online students were administered, anonymously, the Myers-Briggs, Form M personality inventory at the beginning of their advanced degree program.

Demographic data including gender and age

Progression through the academic program is recorded

Data Analysis:  Descriptive statistics of the frequencies of each personality trait will be compiled using SPSS version 19

Chi square correlations and logistical regression will be of personality trait and program type
