This study was conducted to investigate nurse practitioner (NP) students' beliefs toward teaching at risk males about testicular cancer (TC) and testicular self-examinations (TSEs). Limited studies have been conducted on NP beliefs toward TC and TSEs; however, no studies exist for NP students in health promotion and teaching TC and TSEs.
With a current lack of TC and TSE knowledge in young men, the delivery of education is important to this population for early detection and better outcomes in treatment. A sample of 49 NP college students from California State University, Long Beach participated in this research, where positive beliefs about TC's seriousness, young men's susceptibility, and benefits from education were found to be associated with NP students' beliefs. Barriers exist that inhibit NP students from providing TC education, which is recommended for future research.
