"Perceived Job Transition Readiness" of Physical Therapy Students in Abha, Saudi Arabia
Keywords:Perceived, job transition, readiness, physical therapy students
Students gaining professional education in physical therapy and other related health care professions often have high stress associated with a fear of practice. This study tries to examine the “perceived job transition readiness” of physical therapy students in a single cross-sectional study. An ANOVA details the different perceptions among first year students and final year students of physical therapy education. The study points out that, final level students lack role identity in their chosen profession and, they have less confidence about their professional readiness to practice physical therapy than the junior students. The study provides an in depth understanding for the graduates to be that such stress they experience is only momentary and that it is a positive stress that would help them to excel in future.
