Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the level of final semester registered nursing students' knowledge and attitudes, towards pain management. In Australia, research on pain management practices of student nurses is relatively unknown. In order to investigate knowledge and attitudes.a mixed-method non-experimental research design study was undertaken with 55 final semester registered nursing students. Results from this research support a widespread concern regarding inadequacy in the knowledge and attitudes of student nurse's regarding pain and its' management. It is anticipated that educational initiatives in this area could assist to enhance nurses' awareness and possibly lead to improved practices
