RESULTS: 83.6% of the students who participated in the survey were female, 16.4% were male. The age of the students varies between 18-21 and their average age is 19.05 ± 0.86. It was found that 72.7% of the students voluntarily selected the profession. It has been determined that 80% of the students do not take responsibility for maintenance before.
