Abstract

This study sought to determine whether or not students in the Missouri Southern State College Maternal-Child Nursing course who did not receive their clinical instruction concurrently with classroom instruction on that portion of the course performed as well as students for whom classroom instruction and clinical instruction were concurrent. With the exception of one class omitted, maternal-Child Nursing classes from 1970 through 1979 were included in the study. Entrance examination aptitude scores, course grades, National League for Nursing achievement test scores and State Board of Nursing examination scores were used as measures. Analysis of the data indicated that there was no significant difference in achievement of the two groups.
