MOTIVATIONAL FACTORS OF STUDENTS FOR WORKING WITH THE ELDERLY

Being aware of the problems of aging, as well as understanding them and being sensitive about them, contributes to the quality of medical professionals’ approach to the elderly. Studies to date have shown that nursing education has a positive impact on students’ attitudes towards the elderly. Using the qualitative method of the semi-structured interview, this work studies the perception of experts in the fields of gerontology and gerontological education towards the shift in nursing students’ perception towards the elderly and the process of aging. We’ve interviewed experts who teach gerontology and geriatrics in the nursing departments at five higher education institutions. The results identify significant factors that serve as a basis for improving motivational and pedagogical work with students in different educational environments in the field of gerontological care.
