The Effect of Simulation-based Learning in the Nursing Care of Children with Fever on Critical Thinking Disposition, Communication Confidence and Nursing Performance Confidence
Purpose: This study aimed to examine the effects of simulation-based learning on the
critical thinking disposition, communication confidence, and performance confidence in
nursing care for children with fever. Method: A one-group pre- and post-test design was
used. A total of 59 nursing students participated. Results: The results of this study showed
that the effectiveness of simulation-based learning showed statistically significant improvement
in critical thinking disposition, communication confidence and performance confidence.
Conclusion: The findings indicate that simulation-based learning in the nursing care of
children with fever may be an effective teaching-learning method for nursing students.
