Two of three phases of a study were conducted to (1) assess the state of the art on the prediction of nursing clinical performance and (2) obtain current information from nursing education programs about prediction criteria in use by them. Phase one involved a review of the 1965 through 1975 literature pertaining to studies that focused on the attributes possessed by individuals before they enter a school of nursing, individuals proceeding through the nursing education process, and performance following graduation. During phase two a national survey of 150 nursing schools was done to collect data regarding predictive criteria. Some of the findings follow: (1) The most commonly used admission criteria in decreasing order are health data, high school rank, high school grade point average, applicant interviews, and prior college grade point average; (2) measures of cognitive attributes and achievement were the only predictive measures used by a substantial number of schools, and (3) teacher-made examinations were the most widely used measure of student progress in theory while clinical performance was evaluated by ratings of technical, interpersonal relations, problem solving, and assessment skills. (This report contains twenty-two tables summarizing the 398 studies reviewed during phase one. Each citation is cross-referenced with an annotated bibliography. The study's third phase, a follow-up of graduates, is currently underway.) (em)

Prediction of Sucessful Nursing Performance. Part Iii and Part Iv. Health Manpower References by Patricia M Schwirian( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of the three-phase national study to provide information to form a basis for predictions about successful nursing performance, a review was conducted of the performance of nursing school graduates at their first jobs. In March, 1976, questionnaires were mailed to a cohort of 1975 graduates who were selected by school officials as having special ability and to a sample of graduates chosen at random. The 914 responding graduates were then asked to provide the names of their immediate superiors who were subsequently sent questionnaires requiring them to rate the graduates on the same activities on which the graduates had evaluated themselves. Based on the responses of these two groups, information was derived in the five following areas: (1) the relationship between the type of educational program and the graduate's type of employment, and the extent of congruence in job performance appraisal by the employer and graduate; (2) variables which influence choice of a particular educational program and a particular job; (3) motivational and other characteristics of graduates according to their prenursing background, present position and performance, and future aspirations; (4) extra-job professional activities of the graduates; and (5) differential perceptions of quality of basic education relative to present performance.

Caregivers of young adults with traumatic brain injury : burden, cognition, and functional ability three months after discharge from an acute rehabilitation setting by Ann Marie Smith( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This exploratory, correlational clinical study, examines the relationships between reported caregiver burden, as measured by the Zarit and Zarit Burden Interview, and cognition and functional ability, as measured by the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), in persons who had experienced traumatic brain injury. Forty-two subjects with traumatic brain injury and their caregivers were studied during their three-month follow-up appointment in clinic after discharge from a single 31-bed inpatient rehabifitation unit. Much time was given to exploring demographic data and relationships to previous studies. Pearson correlation matrixes and a simple, single regression model was utilized to examine the relationships. Functional ability and cognition both negatively affected reported caregiver burden, although not statistically significant. Implications for nursing research and practice are also presented
