Effect of Cardiac Education on Coronary Artery Disease Knowledge and Knowledge Retention among University Nursing Students in Jordan
L. Tawalbeh

Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to test the effect of cardiac education programme on CAD knowledge and knowledge retention among university nursing students in the north of Jordan. Pre-test-post-test experimental randomized controlled design was used. Nursing students were randomly allocated either to the experimental group and attended cardiac educational program and or to control group who did not receive any intervention. Coronary Heart Disease awareness and knowledge questionnaire was used to measure students’ knowledge about CAD. The first post-test was carried out one day after the programme application, while the second post-test was conducted three months after the application of cardiac education. The results showed that students in the experimental group have significantly (p<0.001) higher knowledge in the first post-test (M = 21.00 SD = 2.32) and the second post-test (M = 20.20 SD = 2.24) compared with those in the control group. Implementing cardiac education programme improved nursing students CAD knowledge and knowledge retention. The cardiac education program should focus on university students to advance knowledge about CAD that may help enhance health outcomes by using effective healthy measures.
