Annotated Bibliography of Professional Socialization.
Rogers, John M.
This bibliography contains annotations of 49 articles on the topic of professional socialization. The articles were identified using the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), Sociological Abstracts, Medline, and Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature data bases. A bias exists in the selection process towards items related to nursing and medicine as well as those articles addressing professional socialization during the period of formal education. The citations touch on many topics other than professional socialization, including role conception, autonomy, differentiation between the practice of professional and technical nurses, effects on marriage, and the concept of failure. It is noted that a plethora of instruments have been used in conjunction with these studies of professional socialization and that they include instruments to measure socialization itself as well as instruments that assess narrower or related subject areas such as locus of control, work satisfaction, values, attitudes, role identity, professional and personal development, and learning styles. Where an article is a review article it is noted as such in the annotation. Articles were included because they provide some basic information, an international perspective, or examples of unique approaches, and because they fit into the selected interest area. (ABL)
