  1. HIV and the work intentions of public health nurses.

    Article - En anglais

    Studies have examined the association between attitudes about the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and nurses'willingness or intentions to work with infected persons.

    However, the relationship between these intentions and perceived concern from nurses'family and friends, or factors of professional nursing experience is relatively unexplored.

    An anonymous questionnaire was completed by 311 public health nurses from areas with high and low prevalence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in North Carolina.

    Multiple regression analysis showed that nurses had stronger intentions to work with HIV-infected clients if they had more favorable attitudes about the disease, perceived friends and loved ones to be supportive of such work, had stronger professional ties to public health, and had worked fewer years in public health.
