    This research aimed to explore the effectiveness and limitations of assertiveness training by using the grounded modified theory approach. Results showed the training to be effective in initiating internal changes, behavioral changes, and other changes in both the participants and the people around them. On the other hand, the training was found to be ineffective in translating its effect into real-life situations as indicated by participants' responses as "The effect of training does not reach real life" and "I was trained that behavior is bound." This can be considered as a limitation of the training.

    Educational institutions need to train nursing students with an eye toward vocational readiness to increase the number of graduates who will continue to work in the nursing field. This longitudinal study of junior college nursing students examines the causal relationship between vocational readiness and 3 potentially related factors (School image, degree of understanding of the lessons, and interest in nursing) using the cross-lagged effect model. The only significant relationship observed was between vocational readiness and the student's interest in nursing. As having an interest in nursing increases vocational readiness, fostering an interest in nursing should raise their perceived value of working as a nurse, potentially increasing the number of graduates who remain working as nurses.
