MACIAS SEDA, Juana et al. Beliefs and attitudes toward Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in nursing students. Index Enferm [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.1-2, pp.9-13. ISSN 1132-1296. http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1132-12962012000100003.
Objective: To identify beliefs and attitudes toward Gender-based violence (GBV) in nursing students. Methodology: a descriptive study involving 265 nursing students at the University of Seville. A self-administered anonymous survey was used to assess: a) perception, socialization, gender-based academic training and preparedness to address the GBV, b) the scale of beliefs and attitudes towards Gender-based violence (C.A.G.V.) by Diaz-Aguado applied. Results: The boys have more sexist beliefs and about the biological fate of the GBV, whereas girls value the better the access of women to positions of power and responsibility. The first course was associated with beliefs about biological fate of the GBV, whereas in higher grades GBV is considered a private matter problem. Conclusion: Men are more influenced by sexist attitudes and adopt a more fatalistic approach when justifying the violence.
