Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe the level of knowledge that nurse students in term 6 have about Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and basic hygiene routines. The data collection was carried out by questionnaires. The questionnaire contained questions about knowledge regarding MRSA and basic hygiene routines. The questionnaires were handed out at an obligatory tuition occasion and all of the nurse students who were present (n=57) were asked to take part. The sample consisted of 45 women and 12 men. The youngest participant was 22 years old and the oldest participant was 52 years old. The main results showed a large variation regarding the participants knowledge on the subjects. Regarding questions about basic hygiene routines the majority had given the right answers. The number of right answers in the survey on questions about the participants knowledge of MRSA was lower. Only 12 % had given the right answer to the question about common symptoms of MRSA infection. Regarding the question about whether the nurse students considered themselves knowledgeable enough about MRSA for their future occupation, 32% had answered "to a high degree".

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva vilka kunskaper sjuksköterskestuderande i termin 6 har om Methicillinresistenta Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) och basala hygienrutiner. Datainsamlingen genomfördes med enkäter. Enkäten innehöll frågor om kunskaper gällande MRSA samt basala hygienrutiner. Enkäterna delades ut vid ett obligatoriskt undervisningstillfälle och samtliga, vid undervisningstillfället närvarade sjuksköterskestudenter (n =57) tillfrågades om deltagande. Undersökningsgruppen bestod av 45 kvinnor och 12 män. Yngsta deltagaren var 22 år och den äldsta deltagaren var 52 år. Huvudresultatet visade en stor variation gällande deltagarnas kunskaper i ämnena. På frågor angående basala hygienrutiner hade majoriteten svarat rätt. På de frågor som berörde deltagarnas kunskaper om MRSA var antalet rätta svar i undersökningen lägre. Endast 12 % hade svarat rätt på frågan om symtom som är vanliga vid MRSA infektion. På frågan om sjuksköterskestudenterna ansåg att de hade tillräckliga kunskaper om MRSA för sitt kommande yrke som sjuksköterskor svarade 32 % ”i hög grad”.
