ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to identify the impact of knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to COVID-19 on the clinical practice satisfaction of nursing college students. The study included 150 3rd and 4th-year students from a nursing college. Data were collected from May 2nd to May 23rd, 2022, and analyzed by SPSS/WIN 23.0, using multiple linear regression. The average scores for participants' knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to COVID-19 were 57.34±6.49, 36.15±4.98, and 43.21±6.30, respectively, while the mean score for clinical practice satisfaction was 110.42±15.38. Clinical practice satisfaction between the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses received (t=-2.01, p =.046) and feelings of depression due to social distancing and self-isolation (t=2.51, p =.013) were statically significant. Clinical practice satisfaction showed significant positive correlations with knowledge (r=.28, p <.001), attitudes (r=.24, p =.004), and behaviors (r=.24, p =.003). The factors influencing clinical practice satisfaction were identified as knowledge (β=.20, p =.015), feelings of depression due to social distancing and self-isolation caused by COVID-19 (β=-0.21, p =.009), and attitudes (β=.21, p =.010). It is necessary that educational programs make nursing students increase knowledge and attitudes towards infectious diseases before conducting clinical practice.
