Keywords:academic performance, scholarship, nursing colleges, Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training
The Government of Nepal offers different scholarship schemes to promote nursing education through its agencies, including the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT). Despite practice of scholarship in nursing education for many years, there are inadequate studies conducted to explore and inform about the effectiveness of scholarship in nursing education in association with the students learning performance. This study examines the status of academic performance of the scholarship and fee paying nursing students and also explores their perspectives on professional values they imbibe for nursing profession. The study reveals that the scholarship students perform better in learning than the fee-paying students. Their educational performances are measured in terms of the frequency of library visit, frequency of reading course-related articles, duration of time spent by students on self-study (independent variables) and the marks they obtained (dependent variable) in the first and the second year of nursing courses. The scholarship students have exceeded the fee-paying students in all of these educational performance indicators.
