Demographic characteristics of Victorian nursing students: a comparison between hospital and higher education recruits.

Abstract

This paper compares the demographic characteristics of 191 nursing students in hospital-based programs and 321 nursing students in higher education institutions in Victoria. The study found that a greater proportion of males were recruited to hospital programs and that they tended to enter several years after leaving secondary school. In contrast, more direct from school entry students of both sexes and students from country areas were recruited to higher education programs.
