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.
Purpose: The aim of this study was to identify instructor’s experience on debriefing of nursing simulation education
Methods: The participants were nine instructors in simulation-based nursing education. Data were collected from May, 2015 to June, 2015, through in-depth interviews and were analyzed on the basis of Colaizzi’s phenomenological methodology.
Results: Three essential themes were extracts that were as follows 1) Instructors’ reflection on their teaching of debriefing in education 2) Determining the effects of debriefing in the simulation-based nursing education 3) Devoting one’s efforts for successful debriefing
Conclusion: Debriefing is built on instructors’ reflection of how the debriefing process can be applied in simulation-based nursing education; this process can provide a practical understanding of nursing students, educational contents, and educational environments. Successful debriefing for enhanced nursing competency requires instructors’ effects to identify and deal with educational problems by reflecting on their teaching experience.
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore instructor's experience on nursing simulation education
Methods: The participants in this study were 10 instructors at a university in Korea. They had teaching experience of simulation education in various parts of curriculum. Data were collected from October, 2014 to December, 2014, through in-depth interviews and were analyzed on the basis of Colaizzi’s phenomenological methodology.
Results: Four essential themes were extracts that were as follows 1) Came across obstacles about use of the simulator 2) Need of instructors’ preparation for the simulation education is required 3) The simulation education conditions are in need of improvement 4) Need of efforts required to strengthen competency as professional nurses
Conclusion: Even though at times the education was not carried out smoothly from simultor and education condition, the instructors felt the need for the simulation education in nursing and realized that instructors preparation and simulation education conditions were in need of improvement. Furthermore, the instructors thought the need of further efforts for the students to strengthen their nursing competency as professional nurses. Such understanding of the instructors’ experience, therefore, will be applied to the course of education, which will help maximize the effects of the simulation education and contribute to the necessary improvement required through the curriculum.
