Abstract:
Session presented on Friday, July 25, 2014: Purpose: Sleep is one of the human physiological needs. Sleep can promote personal health and provide the best physical and mental functions for human bodies. Recently we discovered that nursing college students in Taiwan are often lethargic and dozing in the classroom. Therefore, the study explored the factors of leading to poor sleep quality among nursing college students in Taiwan. Methods: In this study, the Pittsburgh Sleep Scale (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, PSQI) was used to investigate the sleep quality among third year nursing students in Taiwan. Results: total of 100 questionnaires were issued. There are 94 valid questionnaires. There were 86 % of female, and 14% of male participants in this study. The average age was 20 years old. The studies showed that the main factors of causing poor sleep quality among nursing college were Internet use. Nursing college students used social networking all night in talking to friends which leaded to emotional dependent and stay up late. In terms of quality of sleep, there were 67 nursing students (71.3%) indicating poor sleep quality (PSQI score>= 5), and results showed that their sleeping time was between 12am to 2am. There were no significantly between male and female. Conclusion: In order to improve the quality of sleep, we hoped to enhance good lifestyle and good sleep habits among nursing college students. We recommended for proper time arrangements at homework and lifestyle; and taking regular exercise each day.
