The Impact of a Cognitive Behavioral Intervention on Test Anxiety in a BSN Program

The Impact of a Cognitive Behavioral Intervention on Test Anxiety in a BSN Program Abstract Test anxiety and attrition are prevalent in nursing programs. Efforts should be made to assist nursing students in obtaining coping mechanisms to reduce anxiety. The aim of this quantitative, quasi-experimental, before and after study was to determine the impact of a cognitive-behavioral intervention on test anxiety during first-semester nursing courses. Thirty bachelor of science in nursing students in a rural university participated in a cognitive-behavioral intervention and completed the Cognitive Test Anxiety Scale. A two-tailed, dependent-samples t-test determined a statistically significant decrease in test anxiety scores (p < .001), supporting interventions aimed at reducing both the physical and mental effects of test anxiety. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nursing Education Perspectives Wolters Kluwer Health

Abstract

Abstract Test anxiety and attrition are prevalent in nursing programs. Efforts should be made to assist nursing students in obtaining coping mechanisms to reduce anxiety. The aim of this quantitative, quasi-experimental, before and after study was to determine the impact of a cognitive-behavioral intervention on test anxiety during first-semester nursing courses. Thirty bachelor of science in nursing students in a rural university participated in a cognitive-behavioral intervention and completed the Cognitive Test Anxiety Scale. A two-tailed, dependent-samples t-test determined a statistically significant decrease in test anxiety scores (p < .001), supporting interventions aimed at reducing both the physical and mental effects of test anxiety.
