    Hi, everyone

    Sorry I am late to post the result. The course just gave me too much assignment to do. Now I am a bit free from that. Here is the result:

    Practise all 4 healthy lifestyle nurses 11%
    Practise 3 healthy lifestyle nurses 21%
    Practise 2 healthy lifestyle nurses 41%
    practise 1 healthy lifestyle nurses 24%
    pracitse none healthy lifesytle nurses 3%

    smoking nurses 73%
    inacitvity nusres 40%
    overweigh nurses t 53%
    not enought fruit and vegetable eating nurses 68%

    Overall the ratio of nurse practise healthy lifestyle just a little higher than general ratio. To me it was an unexpected result and it raise an other question in my mind. But I don't have time to do it right now, maybe later.
    I got 93% on my paper: Healthy Lifestyle for Nurse.Thank you very much everyone.

    overweigh nurses t 53%

    Buy your "overweight" statistic might have been wrong - the question asked if one was out of the healthy range, not above it. That could also mean underweight.

    I think the default is overwieght with the exception being underweight. Looking around at my peers, most people who fall out of range are overweight. I would guess that underweight would account for maybe 2%.

    So, are nurses fatter than the average, or leaner?

    You should also take into account the fact that this survey was done Online.... so... maybe there's a percentage of nurses that spend much less time online... and spend more time exercising... and maybe that would decrease inactivity and overweight. Think about it, if you're in front of the computer you're probably inactive and that could result in you being overweight. Just a thought

    Yes, this survey could be affected by going online. Some studies showed the smoking nurse had a lower ratio than my. Overall the result I got from this survey has a lower ratio than general population(almost 60% people with unhealthy weight).

    My point in my paper is althought nurses know all about healthy living, but not all of us practise those healthy advise. Beside knowledge, there is a need of other strategies to promote people practise healthy lifestyle, like working enviornment, community enviornment, goverment policy...

    Once again thanks to all who paticipated in this survey. I got a great grade on my paper 93%. I will meet you some other time at other place. This is a great forum.
