Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Do family nurse practitioner students understand the physiological changes associated with andropause in men over forty?
by Torres, Nhordia, M.S.N., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 93; 1520931
Abstract (Summary)

This project was conducted to determine whether family nurse practitioner students from a local university have a well-known understanding of andropause in men over the age of 40. There were no published studies in the literature found to determine what the baseline understanding is for students in an advance practice program regarding "male menopause." Therefore, this project was created to increase awareness to family nurse practitioners who can better care for their aging male patients.

A convenience sample of 27 graduate nursing students participated in this project. Each student was given a pre and post examination called "Test your Male IQ" with a detailed power point presentation called "MENopause." The 10 question pre and post examinations were compared and obtained over a 2-week period during regular class time. The results of the posttest revealed a significant improvement after the educational presentation was given ( t = -3.848, df = 26, p = .001) compared to the pretest.
