Professional Socialization of Baccalaureate Nursing Students: Can Students in Distance Nursing Programs Become Socialized?


The present study was designed to assess whether there were differences in professional socialization for students enrolled in distance and campus-based baccalaureate nursing programs. The results did not support a priori hypothesis that there are no differences in socialization between students in these programs. Instead (and to our surprise), nursing students near completion in distance nursing programs had significantly higher scores on two measures of socialization than did campus-based nursing students.
