Social trends influence the need for inclusion of basic concepts of occupational health into generic nursing education. Several techniques have been used to incorporate occupational health into baccalaureate programme. These include clinical preceptorships in employee health services, lectures on occupational health issues into community health nursing courses and the integration of occupational health concepts throughout the nursing curriculum and organize an independent course of occupational health nursing for two semester hours. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of this course to the role orientation of nursing students. In March 1998, pre-test was conducted with all 39 students. Post- test for the subjects and the survey for the other comparison group were conducted after the course in May. Structured questionnaires were distributed which were composed of 42 items related to the role of occupational health nurse and each item was measured on a scale of 1 to 5. Results are as follows: 1) The paired t-test supported the hypothesis that role orientation of students was improved through the occupational health nursing course (t=-3.93, p=.000), 2) As the result of t-test between the subject and the comparison group, the mean score of the role orientation in the case of subject was significantly higher than that of the comparison group(t=13.3449, p=.0005). The enlargement of occupational health nursing course must be a facilitating factor to the improvement of the role orientation of baccalaureate students. It is needed to measure occupational health nursing competence of them in the future.
