... POP negatively affects approximately 41% of women worldwide (Chapple & MacNeil, 2019). The FI prevalence is 14.4% in the United States and 22.4% in Indonesia (Menees et al., 2018;Suyasa et al., 2015). Previous studies also reported that the prevalence of sexual dysfunction ranges from 16.9% and 85% among women globally (Chapa et al., 2020;Guo et al., 2012). ...
... Evidence has revealed that nursing students dislike working with older person because the care routine in gerontological wards or long-term facilities involves physical labor, where nurses only provide basic care rather than complicated care techniques (King et al., 2013;Neville & Dickie, 2014). Another possible reason for this dislike is that nursing students only receive a single course on geriatric nursing for a semester, and less exposure might result in a low preference for caring with older person patients (Dai et al., 2020;Xiao et al., 2013). Given unprecedented population aging in these countries/ regions, student nurse disinterest in geriatric care is an alarming sign that predicts potential workforce shortages in the short-and long-term future. ...
... Nursing homes are often associated with and described as marginal learning environments because of the high number of residents with complex and comprehensive care needs, low staffing, and a less qualified workforce [8]. Hence, lack of resources and capacity to mentor and support students' learning in nursing homes is the most frequently mentioned barrier in developing and utilising clinical placements in these settings [9,10]. At the same time nursing homes provide ideal conditions for student learning, offering learning experiences of caring for a frail older population. ...
... Despite recognition that specialised knowledge about older people is required since the 1950s (Dahlke, 2011), international scholars suggest that nurses are graduating from their education programmes without the necessary knowledge and skills to work with the ageing population (Baumbusch & Andrusyszyn, 2002;Deschodt et al., 2010;Gilje et al., 2007;Hirst et al., 2012;Ironside et al., 2010;Xiao et al., 2008). Research has also identified that practising nurses lack the knowledge to meet the needs of the ageing population (Cooper et al., 2017;Fox et al., 2016;Wagner et al., 2013). ...
... The JBI Critical Appraisal Checklists for Analytical Cross-Sectional studies and for Cohort Studies were used for this purpose (Tables 1 and 2). The cross-sectional studies demonstrated high-quality methodology, with only 1 article scoring 3 out of 8 points (Henderson et al., 2008). The quality of the longitudinal studies was more uneven, with only 2 studies scoring 6 or more points out of 11 (Hovey et al., 2018;Ridgway et al., 2018). ...
