INFLUENCE OF DEMOGRAPHIC VARIABLES ON ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF POST GRADUATE NURSING STUDENTS OF UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA ENUGU CAMPUS.

CHAPTER ONE

 INTRODUCTION 

 Background to the study 
Education plays a very significant role in national development and for this reason, the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 1998 adopted education as an instrument par-excellence for this desired goal. Through education, desirable habits, skills, attitudes and values of the society are transmitted and cultivated in the individual with the view to making him useful to himself and the society at large. University education in Nigeria has witnessed tremendous development since the country’s independence in 1960. This is in recognition of the fact that the National Policy on Education stipulates that university education in Nigeria shall make optimum contribution to national development by intensifying and diversifying its programmes for the development of high-level manpower within the context of the needs of the nation (FGN, 2004). In pursuance of this objective, university education in Nigeria has been geared towards the production of high-level manpower. In doing this, examination has been the main criterion of quality of the educational system (Adeyemi, 2010). Ebenuwa-Okoh (2010) defines academic performance as participants’ examination grades (grade point average) at the end of a particular semester or programme. It could also be seen as the level of performance in a particular field of study. Higher scores indicate better academic performance (Egbule, 2012). The social and economic development of the country is directly linked with student academic performance (Mushtaq & Khan, 2012). Academic performance plays an important role in producing the best quality graduates who will become great leaders and manpower for the country thus responsible for the country’s economic and social development (Ali & Jusoff, 2009). In educational institutions, success is measured by academic performance, or how well a student meets standards set out by government and the institution itself. As career competition grows ever fiercer in the working world, the importance of students performing well in school has caught the attention of parents, legislators and government education departments alike. Although education is not the only road to success in the working world, much effort is made to identify, evaluate, track and encourage the progress of students in schools. Parents care about their children’s academic performance because they believe good academic results will provide more career choices and job security. Schools, though invested in fostering good academic habits for the same reason, are also often influenced by concerns about the school’s reputation and the possibility of monetary aid from both governmental and non-governmental organizations, which can hinge on the overall academic performance of the school.
