Abstract

 

Nursing is a health-care profession dedicated to the care of individuals, families, and communities in order for them to achieve, maintain, or recover a healthy lifestyle. Nurses provide holistic care to people of all ages and different cultures, both healthy and weak, based on the individual's physical, emotional, behavioural, philosophical, social, as well as religious aspects. The main objective is to determine the perception of BSN students of UOL about nursing image and to determine reasons for BSN students of UOL to join the nursing profession. A cross sectional study design was used in Lahore school of Nursing, University of Lahore, Pakistan. Questionnaire distributed among nursing students and data analyzed by SPSS software (version 21). The results show that 75.2% of students have a negative perception and 24.8% have a positive perception of the student about nursing image. The estimated reasons to join the nursing profession in a graph show that 36.3% have bad reasons and 63.7% have good reasons to join the nursing profession. The study concludes that the studentís negative perception of the nursing image and majority of the participants join the nursing profession for the purpose of securing a job easily, financial crises and peer pressure but actually they aren't interested in nursing profession. Professional perspective has a significant impact on nursing student development and future nursing reliability. As a result, students are hesitant to take nursing as a career.
