1. Although nurses may have the necessary skills to plan care of clients in a variety of settings, experience and research demonstrate that nursing interventions with women victims of violence have been consistently inadequate. 2. Of the 243 nursing students included in this study, 8% reported experiencing physical abuse, and 18.9% reported experiencing non-physical abuse.
Difficulties with depression for 26.1% of the students and some level of clinical stress were reported in over half of the group. 3. Specific needs to combat violence and abuse against nurses and nursing students include providing better information on such behavior by incorporating family-violence education into nursing-school curricula, and using this proactively in confronting domestic violence in home and work settings.
