Longitudinal Study of Stress, Self-care, and Professional Identity among Nursing Students
An important outcome of nursing education is the acquisition of an identity consistent with the profession’s core knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes. Hensel and Laux conducted a longitudinal study to describe factors associated with the acquisition of a professional identity over the course of prelicensure education. Learn more about this important study in the September/October 2014 issue of Nurse Educator (39:5).
