BACCARO, Thais Accioly y SHINYASHIKI, Gilberto Tadeu. Vocational choice consistency and the professional socialization of nursing students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.1, pp. 73-82. ISSN 1679-3390.
The aim of this research was to analyze the influence of vocational choice consistency in the professional socialization process with nursing students through the introduction of several test factors. In order to achieve that, hypothesis tests were used together with the creation of the answer tree using the CHAID algorithm. The sample consisted of 2657 students from 15 colleges distributed in 9 Brazilian states. The results showed that a consistent vocational choice tends to improve the nursing students' professional socialization process and also that other factors like: type of school, school year and the age at which the choice was made were good predictors for professional socialization.
