PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to identify the factors influencing drinking problems in female university students to provide basic data for a nursing intervention program to improve health and prevent drinking problems.
METHOD
Data were collected from September 17 to 21, 2007 through a questionnaire survey of 325 female college students in G City. Collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation coefficients and stepwise multiple regression.
RESULT
The most powerful predictor of drinking problems was refusal self efficacy. The combination of the influence of friends, perceived stress, personality of novelty seeking, and alcohol expectancy accounted for 23.7% of the variance in drinking problems.
CONCLUSION
From the results, I recommend that refusal self efficacy, influence of friends, perceived stress, personality of novelty seeking, and alcohol expectancy should be contained in developing nursing intervention programs for preventing drinking problems in female university students.

PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of 5 weeks self-help management program developed by Kim et al. (2000-b) and reinforced with music therapy for post stroke patients.
METHOD
This was pre-experimental study and the subjects were 14 post stroke hemiplegic patients at home who were registered at the Gunsan Health Center. The program was applied for five weeks and two hours for each session composed of the preparation step, the main step and the finishing step. The contents of the program were ROM exercise, daily activity training, risk factors and aftereffects, nutrition management and stress management. To collect data, all subjects were questioned before and after the application of the program. Collected data were analyzed through frequencies, percentages, Wilcoxen signed rank test and Cronbach's alpha using SPSS-WIN program.
RESULT
After the application of the self-help management program, a statistically significant increase was observed in the subjects' ability to perform activities of daily living (p=.039), ability to perform instrumental activities of daily living (p=.005), self-efficacy (p=.001), self-care behavior (p=.001) and quality of life (p=.001), and a statistically significant decrease was observed in depression (p=.012).
CONCLUSION
The present self-help management program was found to be helpful in improving the subjects' physical and psychological functions after they were attacked by stroke, so to be an effective nursing intervention strategy for post stoke patients. Future researches need to reinforce and materialize music therapy and to develop and apply a self-help management program that includes not only post stroke patients but also their families. In addition, it is necessary to expand the scope of subjects and apply follow-up management in order to continue self-help meetings.

AbstractAbstract PDF
In order to analyze the health problems of school-aged children, daily health records from a convenient sample of two primary schools were analyzed. Diseases were classified into 21 categories according to the KCD (Korea Standard Classification of Diseases). The mean number of visits to health care rooms during school per student was 1.98 during 212 school days from Mar. 2000 to Feb. in 2001 and the mean number of daily visits was 11.66. Male students and 3rd graders visited health care rooms more frequently than female students and other graders. The total spell base incidence rate was 1976.8 per 1,000 students in a year; the incidence rate from injuries was 960.0; 542.4 were for digestive diseases; and 415.2, for respiratory diseases. 97% of all diseases were injuries, digestive diseases and respiratory diseases. The most frequent diseases for male students resulted from trauma, and those for female students, from digestive and respiratory symptoms. The services that nursing teachers implemented were wound treatment (48.8%), medication (44.6%), and so on. Therefore, the findings of this research can serve as the basis for developing school health service program and health education program.

AbstractAbstract PDF
In order to identify the health promoting behavior and its related factors for high school students a survey was performed from 4th to 8th of December 2000. Population were selected by stratified random sampling method and total 355 students replied to the self-administered questionnaire survey. Data analysis was done by descriptive statistics t-test ANOVA, Pearson's Correlation stepwise multiple regression. The results were as follows: 1. The average score of health promoting behavior practices was 2.23(SD=.41) points by the 4 point scale, which was lower than that of adults. In the subcategories the highest degree of performance was self-actualization (mean=2.68 SD=.68) and the lowest degree was health responsibilty(mean=1.33 SD=.41) 2. According to gender(t=2.70 P=.00) school type (t=2.53 p=.01)father's educational level (f=4.16 p=.00) sleeping hours (F=3.80 p=.02) and number of hours at school (F=4.44 ,p=.01) there were a statistically significant differences in modifying factors of health promoting behavior. 3. Health promoting behavior showed significant positive correlations with self-efficacy(gamma=.461 p=.000) internal health locus of control (gamma=.284 p=.000) perceived health status(gamma-163. p=.002) 4. The combination of self-efficacy internal health locus of control school type and gender explained 30% of the variance on health promoting behavior. Therefore the finding of research can serve as the basis for developing health promoting programs which enhance self-efficacy and performed in school and community.

Mean scores for job involvement were 3.0879 on a 5 point scale. 2. In the personal variables, professional experience(t=-2.18, p=.031), position(t=2.34, p=.021), and age(F=-1.94, p=.038) were statistically significant in job involvement. 3. The variables to job characteristic were statistically significant in job involvement: job challenge (r=.4785, p=.000), role ambiguity (r=-.3141, p=.000), task significance (r=.2714, p=.000), and role conflict(r=-.2166, p=.003). 4. The variables to organizational characteristic were statistically significant in job involvement : formalization(r=.3184, p=.000) and human centered organizational characteristic (r=.2450, p=.001).
