Nursing student knowledge and compliance with SIDS prevention strategies

Juanita Graham, Morgan Peoples


Excessive preventable sleep-related deaths require that every nurse encounter with infant caregivers should include safe sleep education and role modelling. Adequate training on sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) prevention, including safe infant sleep, may be lacking in some nursing schools. The purpose of this study was to assess SIDS prevention knowledge and compliance among nursing students. Many students did not accurately identify modifiable SIDS risk factors, ethnic groups with higher SIDS incidence, or optimal education methods. These findings could be helpful for assuring that nursing curricula adequately prepare new nurses for preventing future SIDS events.
