  • The purpose of this study was to make a descriptive research study to examine the educational needs of adult learners for lifelong education centers, their importance awareness, requests for improvement and requests for supplementation. The subjects in this study were the adult learners who were taking one or more course(s) in the lifelong education centers of five different technical colleges located in Gyeonggi Province. A survey was con-ducted from May 1 to June 30, 2018, and the answer sheets from 396 learners were gathered and analyzed. As for analysis, SPSS version 23.0 for Windows was used to obtain statistical data on frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. Concerning the program needs of the adult learners, what they participated in lifelong education programs for was analyzed, and they felt the most needs for "the acquisition of new knowledge and skills." In regard to importance, the item that they responded the most in the area of learning environments is that "the center is convenient for transportation and easily accessible." The item that they did the most in the area of instructional design is that "the lecturers have a professional knowledge of or competence in what they teach." The item that they did the most in terms of the content and quality of the programs is that "I have felt a sense of unity or fellowship with my peer learners." As a result of analyzing what needed to be improved or supplemented in the lifelong education programs, they pointed out "the way of running the center and pro-grams," "good educational facilities," "learner-centered evaluation," "courses geared toward acquiring practical job skills" and "lifelong education for the sake of local residents." In order for lifelong education centers to satisfy national and social needs and the needs of adult learners for lifelong education, it seems important above all to keep track of the learning needs of learners and to reflect their needs in developing and operating lifelong edu-cation programs.

  • Simulation is drawing attention in student education as a means of patient safety in today's hospital and med-ical environments. We have tried to raise the ability to cope with situations through various cases through simulations in nursing education. In order to improve the adaptability of clinical nurses to graduate nurses who have to become increasingly complicated and have a high degree of nursing care, simulation training has become an essential curriculum. As a core competency in nursing education, Critical thinking skills and communication skills. The purpose of this study was to develop simulated learning scenarios, which is ICT-based to be applicable as virtual reality programs, in order to cope with the crisis of dyspnea patients who visit the hospital. The study was made from March 10th, 2018 to Feb. 10th, 2019 in which the research developed simulated learning scenarios, algorithms and assessment tables and tested the content validity of the scenarios. In this study, we conducted physical assessment and immediate emergency management of patients with basic dyspnea as Level 1 basic stage to enable stepwise learning of scenarios in nursing situation of respiratory distress crisis. Level 2, which is deepening level, we know how to assess the symptoms of respiratory insufficiency, and aim at differentiating patients, medication, and first aid treatment. Level 3, an integration stage, was designed to allow additional assessment of patients with dyspnea and role-sharing among clinicians, appropriate communication, and level-specific learning that aims to serve as a team leader. The developed simulation scenarios that respond to dyspnea patients in crisis are expected to provide basic information that will be applicable to a variety of education processes in the future.

  • Purpose; The purpose of this study is to identify the levels of stress, self-esteem and resilience of nursing college students’ safety management and to recognize the correlations between them. Methods; The research design is a descriptive correlational study design and used convenience sampling on 203 senior nursing students in G city. The used research measures were tools which measure stress, self-esteem and resilience. Data collection was conducted from June 2, 2017 to June 15, 2017 using SPSS 21.0 for data analysis. Results; The results show that stress is affected by health status, major satisfaction and clinical practice satisfaction. Meanwhile, resilience is affected by health status, selective motivation for nursing major, interpersonal relationships, personality trait and major satisfaction. Stress and resilience are negatively correlated while self-esteem and resilience are positively correlated. In other words, an increase in stress levels correlates with a decrease in resilience and conversely, a decrease in stress levels correlates with an increase in resilience. An increase in self-esteem correlates with an increase in resilience and a decrease in self-esteem correlates with a decrease in resilience. Conclusion; Therefore, there is a need for institutions that are responsible for the education and management of nursing colleges to preferentially take interest in helping nursing students with their stress and college adjustment. In addition, if the social support system that protects nursing students is systemically formed and utilized, it can not only help increase self-esteem and resilience of nursing students but also improve their quality of life, contributing to higher level of nursing profession settings.

  • The purpose of this study was to examine the wellbeing behaviors, life satisfaction and subjective quality of life of community elderly people and to verify the effectiveness and usefulness of a wonderful life program provided for successful life in old age. This study made an attempt to examine the wellbeing behaviors, life satisfaction and subjective quality of life of community elderly people and to verify the effectiveness and usefulness of the wonderful life program so that community elderly people could lead a successful life in old age. This study is a quasi experimental research that adopted nonequivalent control group pretest posttest design to determine the effects of the wonderful life program on wellbeing behaviors, life satisfaction and the subjective quality of life after offering it to the selected community elderly people. We selected 30 people who were given permission from elderly people over 65 years of age at the social welfare center in W city. In the homogeneity test, there was no statistically significant difference in well being behavior, life satisfaction, and subjective quality of life, indicating that the experimental group and the control group before the experiment were the same level. The findings of the study were as follow s: The program was found to have effects on the wellbeing behaviors(z= 3.408, p=.001), life satisfaction(z= 3.225, p=.001) and subjective quality of life(z= 3.419, p=.001) of the experimental group. In contrast, there were no changes in the wellbeing behaviors(z= z=--.253, p=.800), life satisfaction(z= 1.418, p=.156) and subjective quality of life(z= z=--.000, p=1.000) of the control group. Therefore intensive efforts should be directed into the development and supply of various educational programs that could encourage elderly people to keep boosting their wellbeing behaviors, life satisfaction and subjective quality of life. In the future, this program will be indispensable to senior citizens who are increasingly larger in number due to the advancement of the time s and the growing elderly population, and the program is expected to make a great contribution to fast developing aging society
