Abstract (Summary)

This study was conducted to determine whether family nurse practitioner (FNP) students practiced a greater number of health-promoting lifestyle activities than non-nursing undergraduate students enrolled in other disciplines at California State University, Long Beach. No published studies were found comparing FNP students with non-nursing undergraduate/graduate students in health-promoting lifestyle behaviors, thereby creating a need for this research.

A convenience sample of 20 FNP students was compared to 31 non-nursing major, undergraduate/graduate students utilizing the Health Promotion Lifestyle Profile II (HPLP II). All data from the non-nursing and FNP student participants were collected, respectively, over a 1-day period and a 6-week span. The results of the HPLP II were not significantly higher for either group. However, the FNP group demonstrated a significantly higher score in health responsibility, one of the 6 subscales of the HPLP II than the non-nursing group.
