摘要

This pilot study evaluated the effects of a healthy-lifestyle-promoting program, taught as part of an undergraduate community health nursing course, on the physical fitness and health choices of 42 Taiwanese nursing students. A convenience sample provided quantitative indexes of physical fitness and lifestyle before and after the course. Qualitative data, in the form of student diaries, were also analyzed. The findings indicated a positive change in physical fitness, exercise, and nutrition as a result of the program. Including lifestyle programs in nursing education may help promote the long-term health of future nurses who will serve as positive patient role models.
