Although all prospective student nurses applying to the Nebraska Methodist Hospital School of Nursing are required to take the Johnson Temperament Analysis, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, and to check the Problem Check List Form for School of Nursing, no actual value of the scores had been established. It appeared as though deviations above and below the fiftieth percentile on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory might be predicative of adjustment problems in nursing students. On the Johnson Temperament Analysis it seemed as though a high score on the Nervous-Composed and Aggressive-Submissive traits was important in predicting the student’s ability to adjust to nursing situations. It was assumed that the poorly adjusted student had more problems than the well adjusted student, although there was no way of considering how, or if the individual was able to express her problems.
