Status of Violence in a Selected Faculty: The Students’ Experience

Status of Violence in a Selected Faculty: The Students’ Experience AbstractThe present study is aimed at examining the status of violence among the students of nursing, midwifery, and operating room. A self-reporting questionnaire with two sections of demographic characteristics and experience of violence was used. The data obtained were analyzed, using SPSS software. 58.7 percent of the students had a history of violence in the previous year. The maximum percentage of violence exposure belonged to the students of operating room (76.9%). The highest incidence of violence was verbal (76.4%), happened in patients’ rooms (32.9%) and was in the form of insult (75.1%). Accordingly, preventive actions are required to prevent and control violence and support students. Informing students about violence, communicative skills, reaction, and coping with violence during studying is necessary. Therefore, educational authorities and theoretical and clinical instructors should take appropriate measures in order to prevent violence and create supportive mechanisms for the students. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Nursing Education Scholarship de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe present study is aimed at examining the status of violence among the students of nursing, midwifery, and operating room. A self-reporting questionnaire with two sections of demographic characteristics and experience of violence was used. The data obtained were analyzed, using SPSS software. 58.7 percent of the students had a history of violence in the previous year. The maximum percentage of violence exposure belonged to the students of operating room (76.9%). The highest incidence of violence was verbal (76.4%), happened in patients’ rooms (32.9%) and was in the form of insult (75.1%). Accordingly, preventive actions are required to prevent and control violence and support students. Informing students about violence, communicative skills, reaction, and coping with violence during studying is necessary. Therefore, educational authorities and theoretical and clinical instructors should take appropriate measures in order to prevent violence and create supportive mechanisms for the students.
