|According to the WHO estimation, old people aged 65 years and over account for approximately 80% of the entire disabled population. Disability in older people is often accompanied with multi-morbidity, and they have the social resources needs of continue care with long-term care. Therefore, the training courses of long-term care was important for BSN nursing students in nursing education. The purpose of this study was to compare the differences of social resources knowledge of two-year RN-BSN nursing students with and without learning long-term care courses. Methods: A quantitative design was selected to explor their social resources knowledge compared among two-year RN-BSN nursing students with learning long-term care courses, and two-year RN-BSN nursing students without learning long-term care courses. A convenience sample N = 114 included 78 learning course students, and 36 non-learning course students. The learning course group received a 18 weeks lon-term care education (2 hours per week). The control group were not participate long-term care training. Research tools include social resources scale of long-term care to assess knowledge of sercice items (KSI), knowledge of sercice subjects (KSS), knowledge of financial subsidy(KFS), and knowledge of application conditions for service items (KAC). Results: It was found that the total score of knowledge was significantly different (Mean = 29.06, SD = 6.01, p<.05). The score of KSI ( Mean = 11.7, SD, 2.87, p<.05 ), KFS ( Mean = 6.17, SD = 3.15, p<.05), and KAC ( Mean = 8.23, SD, 2.26, p<.05 ) were increased significantly different (p<.05) for the learning course group at the end of the training, as compared to the control group.The KSS (Mean =2.96, SD, 0.96, p>.05) was not significantly different. Conclusions: The results demonstrated that long-term care courses was necessity in nursing education before students become a clinical nurse. We suggest that the long-term care course should be a required courses for the pre-knowledge of long-term care needs of elderly society.|
