Nursing competence in adolescent health : anticipating the future needs of youth.
The health problems of youth have dramatically shifted in the last 30 years from biological to social causes of morbidity and mortality.
To assess the adequacy of nurses' knowledge and skills in adolescent health, a national survey of 445 nurses, including members of the American Public Health Association, the American School Health Association, and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates and Practitioners, was undertaken in 1985.
Results indicated that even among nurses who work with young people the most, areas of greatest knowledge and skill deficiencies included common social morbidities of adolescents.
