Simple stratified random sampling was used to obtain twenty students per section as sample respondents from the total population of 183 senior nursing students. The sample was limited to senior students primarily due to their longer exposure in the nursing field than those in the other year levels. Generalization of the results is applicable only for the period covered.
From the problem, a hypothesis stating is no significant relationship between level of the student nurses' self efficacy and their level of achievements in RLE was developed.
The summary of the findings revealed that majority of the respondents are female, belonging to the bracket 18-22. The grades of the respondents are close to each other, with the respondents ' average falling only on five categories. The sample population is dominated by student nurses who have a high level of self efficacy. A positive linear trend was found between the level of self efficacy of the senior students and their achievements in RLE based on their gross weighted average.
The foregoing was obtained by various statistical tools used in analyzing each question the problem sought to answer. The tools include frequency count, mean, percentage, Pearson's Product-Moment coefficient of Correlation, Coefficient of Determination and T-test for relationship.
It is hoped that the findings of the researcher may contribute to the database developed for the enhancement of the nursing students' achievements in RLE and ultimately in the improvement of the administration and supervision of the nursing education programs.
This is an explorative study aimed to determine the correlation of the self efficacy and achievements in Related Learning Experience (RLE) of the senior nursing students of the University f the Assumption for the school year 2005-2006. The purpose of the study is to describe the personal profile of the respondents and the relationship of the self efficacy to their achievements in RLE, specifically based on performance accomplishments, observational learning, social persuasion and psychological states.
