Effects of Simulation Practice by applying Problem based learning on the Critical Thinking Disposition, Problem-Solving Process and Self-confidence of Nursing Process in Nursing Students
Purpose: This study was tried to identify the effects of problem-based learning integrated with simulation education on the critical thinking disposition, problem-solving process and self-confidence of nursing process in nursing students.
Methods: This study was one group pre-post test design, participants are 47 senior nursing students. We developed the simulation practice by applying problem based learning taking 2 hours per session, once per week for 15 weeks. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, paired t-test, Pearson’s correlation coefficients using the SPSS WIN 18.0 program.
Result: There was a significant difference simulation practice by applying problem based learning on the critical thinking disposition, problem-solving process and self-confidence of nursing process of nursing students. There was a correlation between each other variables.
Conclusion: Therefore, suggest that the repeated studies to verify the effects of simulation practice by applying problem based learning.
