Interest in Long-Term Care among Health Services Administration Students
Temple, April; Thompson, Jon M.
Gerontology & Geriatrics Education, v32 n4 p367-378 2011
The aging of the population has created increased opportunities for health administrators in long-term care. This study consisted of a cross-sectional survey of 68 undergraduate health services administration students to explore factors related to interest in a career in long-term care administration. One third expressed interest working in the field. Experience in long-term care settings, quality of contact with unrelated older adults, satisfaction working with the elderly, and confidence in the ability to work in the field were positively associated with interest in long-term care administration. The findings have important implications for experiential learning in health administration programs. (Contains 3 tables.)
