How Experiences in a Nursing Home Affect Nursing Students' Perceptions of the Elderly.
Rowland, Virginia T.; Shoemake, Alta
Educational Gerontology, v21 n8 p735-48 Dec 1995
Surveys of 169 nursing students before and after a practicum in a nursing home showed that two-thirds enjoyed the practicum, 30% would really like working with the elderly, and the proportions changed little because of the practicum. Direction of change on five descriptors of the elderly was negative and on two descriptors was positive. (SK)
