Brent, Sandor B.; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v23 n4 p249-78 1991
Investigated contributions of personal, professional, and educational experience to aversive and attractive components of attitudes toward caring for dying patients among 420 undergraduate and graduate students at 6 university-based nursing schools. Results showed that aversiveness decreased, attractiveness increased, and overall attitude became more positive, as the number, extent, and specificity of a student's death-related experiences increased.
