Coping Mechanism of Nursing Student in Academic Failure

...ignorance but it is always the educational system that takes the biggest share of the blame. According to Ibon facts and figures (2009), the literacy rate in the Philippines has regressed a lot over the last ten years. This is attributed to the declining quality, relevance and accessibility of education, the very basic rights of the Filipino youth. Many problems are mentioned except the problem regarding the attitudes of the students toward their academic performance.  There is a usual observation and protest of the secondary school teachers regarding the products of the elementary level of education or the foundation of their learning. They said that the pupils do not know how to study on their own initiative. Some cannot work out their assignments; others cannot take part actively in the class recitation, and others do not know the art of note taking. There have been many instances which showed that majority of the students display inability to discriminate between relevant and irrelevant information they got from their references. Quite a number of students simply pick up the words from the pages of the books or printed materials while comprehending the meaning of it. These and many others are results of poor method of study habits. Thus, developing the youth requires early training in the schools. According to Covey (1989), “To focus on technique is like cramming your way through school. You sometimes get by, perhaps even get good grades, but if you don’t pay the price......

Academic Performance and Clinical Performance of Nursing Student

... Learning in clinical environment involves what Jarvis (2006) defines as action learning, which involves “learning by doing... within a specified social context” (in nursing it is the clinical area). It also involves much more complex learning such as learning of concepts, problem solving, decision making, rule learning, critical thinking. The nursing educators and institutions have an ethical obligation to ensure admission criteria and academic standards that are reasonable and fare, yet effective indicators of students’ success. When an educational institution issues a diploma to one of its students, it is, in effect certifying the society that the student possesses all the knowledge and skills that are required in his chosen discipline. To remain competitive and accountable, it is imperative for nursing programmes to have efficient and reliable admission criteria. Quantitative data and research- base facts are essential for the development, revision and modification of the admission criteria to guide nursing educators to identify and select those students who will successfully complete the nursing programme. It also helps in minimizing the wastage of human and material resources that occur due to student failure and attrition (Dr. Romana Idrees, 2008). Furthermore, the students are exposed to a wide variety of clinical settings—including hospitals, outpatient, community clinics, treatment centers, and long-term care facilities—as well as patient......

Nursing Student Perceptions and Incidence of Performing Breast Self-Examinations Related to Educational Level in a Baccalaureate Nursing Program

...Running Head: BREAST SELF-EXAMINATION Nursing student perceptions and incidence of performing breast self-examinations related to educational level in a baccalaureate nursing program Teresa Fulton Erin Kane Lisa Travers Caitlin Van Brunt Nursing of Department The University of Scranton Intro/Lit review: Cancer is one of the most pervasive diseases in the world today. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, second to skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (2008), it is estimated that 182, 460 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the year 2008. However, the incidence of breast cancer is decreasing which may be attributed to earlier detection and improved treatment (American Cancer Society [ACS].) Methods of detection include clinical breast examination, self breast examination and mammography. Breast self-examination (BSE) allows for a woman to be aware of the regular look and feel of her breasts using a systematic approach and to consequently detect any changes in breast tissue (Budden, 1999, p. 431.) Breast self-examination is a methodical palpation of breasts to detect signs of breast cancer or detect changes in breast tissue; figure ___ depicts the process of BSE (Lowdermilk, 2007, p. 93-94.) Breast self-examinations should be performed monthly, 1 week after menstruating, because breasts are non-tender and not swollen, or on the same day each month if a regular period is not applicable (Lowdermilk, 2007, p. 94.)......

Preference for a Learning Environment and Academic Performance of Students in a Selected College of Nursing

...CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM Introduction Learning environment refers to the physical characteristics of the surroundings of the students when learning. These may vary depending on environmental elements such as sound, light, temperature, and design (Tenedero, 2009). Sound is the first element of the learning environment. Most students are contented with only one sound inside the classroom. This sound refers to the teacher’s voice - explaining the lesson, giving out instructions or assignments, or scolding a student or the entire class (Tenedero, 2009). Some learners prefer total silence or minimum sound because sound acts as a distraction to their effective learning (Senge, 2006). A study done by an American, named James Wallace (2008), mentioned that Filipino students prefer a quiet environment rather than having music or other sounds when studying. However, there are researches which showed that many students prefer to listen to a lecture or study on their own with some background music on because it makes them more receptive to learning (Tenedero, 2009). Light is the second element of the learning environment. Brighter lightings can reduce visual problems, fatigue, and posture problems and produce effective learning which helps improve students’ academic performance (Jensen, 2006). However, research also shows that there are many students who perform significantly better in low light environments because bright lights make them restless, fidgety, and hyperactive. Dimmed...
