Abstract:

This descriptive study aimed to determine the degree of helping behavior of the nursing students of St. Paul University Iloilo as influenced by selected factors. The respondents of this study were the 274 randomly selected nursing students for second semester of Academic Year 2008-2009. The data were obtained through the use of duly validated and reliability-tested researcher-made questionnaires. Frequency count, percentage, and means were the descriptive statistics employed and the inferential statistics used were the t-Test, one-way analysis of variance or ANOVA, and stepwise multiple regression. The .05 alpha level was employed as criterion for the non-rejection or rejection of the null hypotheses. The result of the study revealed that nursing students when taken as an entire group were found to be moderately helpful. However, when grouped according to year level, result revealed that first year students were more helpful. The same is true with those living in dormitory and those having 7-15 years of stay in their residence. The findings further revealed that there were significant differences in the helping behavior of the nursing students when classified according to sex, year level, and locus of control. However, no significant differences were found in the helping behavior of the nursing students when classified as to place of residence, birth order, type of residence, and years of stay. Finally, three of the selected factors were found to be significant predictors of helping behavior and these are sex, year level, and locus of control.
