Abstract

The purpose of this study is to provide basic data on the development and application of dementia prevention education and program by identifying the degree of knowledge and attitude towards dementia of nursing students who have experienced as dementia partners. The participants were 157 nursing students who have experienced as dementia partners and analyzed by using SPSS 23.0 program. The participants showed knowledge toward dementia($9.77{\pm}2.55points$, range 0 ~ 15 points), attitude towards dementia($39.76{\pm}4.00$점, 0 points, range 0 ~ 60 points), and the relationship between knowledge and attitude towards dementia had a positive correlation (r = .213, p = .001). In conclusion, It is imperative to develop a variety of programs as well as drafting national policies that enable the cultivation of knowledge and attitude towards dementia.
