dc.description.abstract The problem. This study sought to ascertain the differences in health beliefs as a function of self-reported exercise patterns. A sample of 112 nurses participated in this study. Procedure. The Health Perceptions Questionnaire (HPQ) by John Ware, Jr. (1976) was utilized to collect data on health beliefs. A second questionnaire was prepared by the investigator and asked for the usual exercise pattern of the individual. Demographic variables were also studied. Findinqs. This study found there was no difference in health beliefs and self-reported exercise patterns in this population at a significance level of .05. There was a difference in health beliefs for the age groups of 20-30 and 40-50 on the HPQ subscale "rejection of the sick role." Conclusions. This study suggests a need for continued study and the development of health education programs to improve exercise patterns both for nurses and for the general public. en
