Abstract

Objective. The public image of nursing appears as a positive but has a negative aspect as well. It is based on myths, misconceptions and stereotypes, which may influence the choice of nursing as a profession, the employment and the work of nurses. The aim of this study is to explore what the attitudes and opinions of students about health care identity and respectability of the profession are, the role of the health care team, possibility to leave the country and satisfaction with nursing positions in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Methods. The study was designed according to the type of cross-sectional study. An epidemiological survey was conducted at the Medical Faculty in Foca during the period 1st to 31st May 2017. The study included 60 students of nursing from the first to the fourth-year, students of different gender and age from 19 to 24 years, who, at the time of examination, attended study. Results. Most respondents, 90% are women, while the study involved only 10% of male students. Of the total num­ber of examined nursing students, 43.4% disagree or generally disagree with the statement that other members of the team value nurses. The highest percentage of subjects (93.4%) agrees with the statement that the continuous improvement is required. Ninety percent of respondents agree with the state­ment that the nurses' job is just as responsible as the other members of the healthcare team. When it comes to the desire to go abroad, the majority (86.6%) would like to do so. Conclusion. Based on the survey results, we can conclude that among students prevail discontent with the position of a nurse in the healthcare team and the country, as well as the great interest in going abroad.
