Abstract:

Background/Objectives: Before the clinical practice, students were attempted to determine how the core basic nursing confidence and clinical performance influenced the reduction of anxiety. Methods/Statistical analysis: The survey was conducted on 170 second-year students in the department of nursing at the 4-year university in Chungcheongnam-do. The students were voluntarily agreed to the purpose of the study. Findings: The results showed that the confidence of clinical performance and the ability of clinical performance were statistically significant factors. Confidence was the highest factor, followed by clinical performance. It was found that these factors influenced the anxiety related to clinical practice of nursing students. Improvements/Applications: In order to alleviate the feelings of vagueness and anxiety before the clinical practice, the ultimate educational goal is to provide a systematic and continuous core technology education to enhance the self-confidence and strengthen the competence as a future nurse.
