Modeling and Measuring Caring Behaviors Among Nursing Education Faculty
Miller, Ava S.; Anderson, Stoerm E.
The curriculum revolution of the 90s placed new emphasis on caring. Faculty modeling of caring behaviors is a key determinant in the development of caring in nursing students. The focus of this study was the need to evaluate the implementation of caring as a core value to be taught to students in nursing programs. The purpose of this project was to design, develop, and evaluate a quantitative instrument to measure nursing students' perceptions of caring and non-caring behaviors among nursing faculty. A thirty-item Likert-type questionnaire was developed using the existing research data pertaining to descriptors of caring behaviors. Internal consistency reliability was demonstrated (alpha=.90 for total instrument).
