Abstract

Background/Objectives

This study identifies nursing students’ adaptation to college life and recognition of death according to their degree of adaptation to field practice, and provides data for programs.

Method/Statistical analysis

Data were collected from 252 nursing students in June 2018 and were analyzed using IBM SPSS 21. Frequencies, means, and standard deviations were obtained for the groups’ characteristics according to degree of adaptation to field practice. The groups’ homogeneity was tested using t-test, Chi-Square test, and Fisher's exact probability test. Differences between the groups in adaptation to college life and death recognition were analyzed using t-test

Findings

The degree of adaptation to college life was higher for the group that showed high degree of adaptation to field practice than the group that showed low degree of adaptation (t=7.47, p<.001). The level of adaptation to all other subareas was higher for the group with level of adaptation to field practice that was higher than the lower group(p<.001). No statistically significant difference was found between the two groups in death recognition (t=-1.44, p=.150), and in the subareas of the level of acceptance of death, the level of denial of death, and death anxiety (p>.05). The level of interest in death, however, was higher for the group with level of adaptation to field practice that was lower than the group with higher level of adaptation to field practice (p<.05), while respect for life was higher for the group whose level of adaptation to field practice was higher (p<.05).

Improvements/Applications

The creation of a support system for individuals in conflict situations to providewith training is necessary, as is the development of education to improve death recognition.
