Abstract

The study sought to determine the correlation between the student nurses’ self-care activities and extent of health care services rendered to clients in accordance to the requisites; food, water, air, elimination process, activity and rest and hazards prevention. Specifically it sought, to determine the extent of the third year student nurses’ self-care activities in relation to food, water, air, elimination process, activity and rest and hazards prevention and their extent of health care services they render to their clients.

Five third year clinical groups who went on duty at the medicine ward of BGHMC were the respondents of the study accounting to 60 respondents in general. The study was conducted at Benguet State University-College of Nursing, La Trinidad, Benguet, last August 4-16 2008 for student nurses’ self-care and at the medicine ward of BGHMC for the extent of health care rendered to clients through their clinical instructors using a structured questionnaire divided into three parts: cover letter, personal profile and the specific items on the extent of student nurses’ self-care and the extent of health care rendered to clients. The data gathered were studied and analyzed using the weighted mean, and Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.

The findings show that the extent of student nurses’ self-care activities is very extensive and the extent of health care services rendered to clients is very extensive. This shows that there is a low correlation between the student nurses’ self-care activities and extent of health care services rendered to clients.

The result revealed that student nurses of Benguet State University-College of Nursing self-care activities maintenance, should involve a well balanced diet, adequate intake of fluids, promote ventilation, ability to void and defecate normally, proper exercise and enhance sleep, and the ability to protect him from illness and injury. This could be promoting through information dissemination, simulation learning, trainings/seminars, campaigns and conducting sport related events. In intervening to client’s care, self-care awareness should be obtained. Moreover, this research could further elaborate if factors including age, sex, civil status, educational status, cultural diversity and religion should be included.
