Abstract [en]

Aim: To investigate concerns about dying for newly admitted nursing students from California, Norway, and Sweden. Method: A total of 389 undergraduate nursing students who had just started their nursing programme participated. Data was collected with a questionnaire that included two instruments-the Concerns about Dying instrument and the Sense of Coherence instrument-and background questions. The data was analysed using statistical and content analysis. Results: There were statistically significant differences between the three groups of students in terms of their age, their experience in health care, whether they had previously attended a dying patient, the age at which they first encountered the death of a loved one, and their concerns about dying. Two main categories emerged from the analysis of the open questions: 'attending to dying and grieving persons' and 'thinking about one's own death'. Conclusion: The study provides important insights into the concerns that newly admitted students bring to the nursing programme.
