In Morocco, nursing education is currently undergoing a major evolution, allowing training institutes to comply with the higher education system. As a result, there is an emerging need for additional training in the form of a Master's degree and a PhD. This provides an opportunity to aspire to an academic and especially a research qualification, and gives an interesting impulse to teaching and research in nursing. This study sought to investigate teachers' perception towards research at the Higher Institute of Nursing Professions and Technics of Health in Rabat. A cross-sectional survey started in Avril 15<sup>th</sup> 2021 and completed in May 10<sup>th</sup> 2021 was used with a convenience sample of teachers from the High Institute of Nursing Professions and Technics of Health in Rabat and It’s Kenitra annex. Data analysis was performed using the software Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 20. Chi Square test and value at 95% confidence level were used to measure the association between study variables and the teachers research perception. Significance was when 𝑝≤0.05. A total of 77 teachers enrolled in this study. 55.8% were aged 30 to 40 years old, 68.8% were female, 57.1% had a master diploma and 60% had more than 5 years teaching experience. Analyses showed that the most correlated variable were age respectively with research motivation (p=0.03), having research skills (p=0.04) and the fact that the research is stressful (p=0.02). The correlations are significant between the level of education, research skills (p=0.04) and research is stressful (p<0.001). Significant association was demonstrated between training in research methodology and the development of research skills. Research experience was correlated with both research skills (p=0.02) and perception of research as stressful (p<0.001). Despite positive participant’s perception towards research, their lack of skills and educational training in research may influences their involvement in research activities. These shortcomings could be reduced by additional education, support, improved communication, and opportunities to undertake research activities.

Abstract


In Morocco, nursing education is currently undergoing a major evolution, allowing training institutes to comply with the higher education system. As a result, there is an emerging need for additional training in the form of a Master's degree and a PhD. This provides an opportunity to aspire to an academic and especially a research qualification, and gives an interesting impulse to teaching and research in nursing. This study sought to investigate teachers' perception towards research at the Higher Institute of Nursing Professions and Technics of Health in Rabat. A cross-sectional survey started in Avril 15<sup>th</sup> 2021 and completed in May 10<sup>th</sup> 2021 was used with a convenience sample of teachers from the High Institute of Nursing Professions and Technics of Health in Rabat and It’s Kenitra annex. Data analysis was performed using the software Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 20. Chi Square test and value at 95% confidence level were used to measure the association between study variables and the teachers research perception. Significance was when 𝑝≤0.05. A total of 77 teachers enrolled in this study. 55.8% were aged 30 to 40 years old, 68.8% were female, 57.1% had a master diploma and 60% had more than 5 years teaching experience. Analyses showed that the most correlated variable were age respectively with research motivation (p=0.03), having research skills (p=0.04) and the fact that the research is stressful (p=0.02). The correlations are significant between the level of education, research skills (p=0.04) and research is stressful (p<0.001). Significant association was demonstrated between training in research methodology and the development of research skills. Research experience was correlated with both research skills (p=0.02) and perception of research as stressful (p<0.001). Despite positive participant’s perception towards research, their lack of skills and educational training in research may influences their involvement in research activities. These shortcomings could be reduced by additional education, support, improved communication, and opportunities to undertake research activities.
