dc.description.abstract A survey of 275 university students revealed differences in attitudes held by nursing students and general studies students toward issues relating to the human immuondeficiency virus (HIV) in the health care setting. Nursing students were less supportive of HIV testing of both patients and health care workers and placed less importance on testing in the prevention of HIV transmission than their general studies counterparts. Nursing students were less likely to support statements requiring health professionals to reveal their HIV status to patients. Opinion within the nursing group was often diverse, while the general studies students' attitudes were often more uniform. Both groups demonstrated support for required education for health care workers.
