The Effect of Music through a Regular Chorus Activity with Nursing Students - A Focus Group Interview

Background: Since nurses work with humans, nursing education helps them understand humans and acquire relative knowledge in order to identify and solve problems.

Method: A focus group interview was conducted with 10 participants who attended a chorus activity.

Result: The analysis revealed five themes. “Cooperation and interaction” showed highly positive results and revealed that music helped each participant develop respect and understand for others. “Confidence and sense of accomplishment” helped participants improve school credits, work performance, and attitudes. Regarding “natural communication with the leader,” participants considered it a good opportunity to develop a close association with their professor. “Emotional stability” was experienced by getting along with friends, seniors, and juniors during the chorus activity. Finally, “Adaptation to nursing” was identified as an essential factor for a nurse.

Conclusion: These findings indicate that music helps nursing students gain stability during university life, decreases stress, and improves self-regard, communication, cooperation, and confidence.
