This would have a positive impact on their training and therefore the industry and service provided to the broader Iranian healthcare sector.

The DREEM can also be used to pinpoint more specific strengths and weaknesses within the education climate To do this, it is necessary to examine responses to individual items.
Items with a mean score of 3. Any item with a mean score of 2 or less should be examined more closely since this indicates a problem areas. Items with a mean of between 2 and 3 indicate aspects of the education climate that are receptive to enhancement.About the Associate Degree in Nursing Program The Associate in Science Degree in Nursing is designed to prepare an individual for a career as a registered nurse.
