This was an empirically based assessment of non-prior service students'quality of life in the Air Force's School of Health Care Sciences.
Analysis provided five results :
(1) The overall quality of life at the school was good. (2) The variables accounting for student unhappiness were dormitory unsuitability and the students not being in their top-three career choices. (3) Structural changes were required at the dormitories. (4) The desire to succeed and how to achieve that success were the most important interests for students. (5) Loved ones and student independence were the greatest indicators of motivation.
The findings resulted in three immediate corrections and two long-term recommendations to improve students'quality of life.
The two long-term recommendations were to have an educational psychologist intervene when students are having significant learning problems, and to alter the selection process for recruiting.
Both immediate corrections and long-term recommendations are useful for sister services.
