PERCEPTION ATTITUDE AND PRACTICE OF CERVICAL SCREENING AMONG NURSES IN ADEOYO MATERNITY HOSPITAL IBADAN, OYO STATE, NIGERIA

This study examines the perception, attitude and
practice of nurses towards cervical screening. A
descriptive cross-sectional survey was adopted
for this study and a simple random sampling
technique was used to select two hundred and fifty
(250) nurses as data for the study. Data were
collected through a self -structured questionnaire
with a reliability co-efficient score of 0.85 and
analysed using descriptive statistics. The result
was presented with tables, frequency distribution
and percentages. The result of this study shows
that the respondents had positive perception and
attitude towards cervical screening, but their
practice level is inadequate. It is therefore
recommended that the screening should be made
compulsory for all female health workers.
