Purpose: This study aimed to examine the learning immersion, learning satisfactory, and learning confidence differences after virtual and then laboratory simulations. Methods: A two-group cross-over design was used, and the participants included 148 senior nursing students (74 teams). The treatments had virtual and then laboratory simulations. The data were analyzed using independent t-test, repeated measures ANCOVA and Chronbach’s αcoefficient using the SPSS/ WIN 21.0 program. Results: Nursing students who experienced laboratory simulation after virtual simulation were different totally or partially with nursing students who experienced virtual simulation first in learning immersion, learning satisfaction and, learning confidence. Conclusion: Effects based on order of simulation were different. To increase learning immersion, laboratory simulation was done before virtual simulation. Learning satisfaction and learning confidence, it were not affected by order of simulation type but by number. Repeated studies require clearly investigating the effects based on order of simulation type.
Purpose: This study aims to improve nursing students’ competency through evidence-based nursing simulation education. Simulations included blood transfusion care for cancer patients, pneumothorax post-op care, and blood pressure control for hypertension care. Moreover, the study investigated the effects of simulations on anxiety, self-confidence, and student satisfaction with the learning experience.
Method: Participants completed a survey on student satisfaction, self-confidence, and anxiety. A prospective, one-group, pre- and post-test design of 135 fourth-grade nursing students was used. A simulation scenario was developed according to the design. It consisted of pre-briefing, practice, serial tests, and debriefing. A simulation of three scenarios comprised blood transfusion care for cancer patients, pneumothorax post-op care, and blood pressure control for hypertension care. Twenty hours of evidence-based nursing simulation practicum consisting of three scenarios dealing with major adult diseases was conducted.
Result: Students showed significant improvements over time in self-confidence (t=4.67, p<.001), student satisfaction (t=3.94, p<.001), and anxiety (t=-4.63, p<.001) after the evidence-based nursing simulation.
Conclusion: Simulation of evidence-based education may be a useful and effective learning strategy. Nursing educators can design evidence-based simulation programs to improve educational effectiveness.
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 examine the effect of repeated simulation and role rotation in a cardiac arrest simulation on learning immersion, learning confidence, and simulation satisfaction. Methods: This study was the descriptive survey and 199 nursing students completed a cardiac arrest simulation-based education program developed by the researcher. Participants repeated the simulation 3 times. Data were analyzed using time series, ANOVA, t-test with SPSS 21.0 program. Results: Over than 2 times was effective frequency of repetition of simulation. There were no differences in learning immersion, learning confidence and satisfaction after simulation due to rotation. Additionally, there were no differences in satisfaction after simulation. However, participants in the lead nursing role in simulation had less learning immersion and learning confidence compared to those not in the lead role. Conclusion: The results indicate that repeted use of the cardiac arrest simulation improved clinical practice; however, role rotation did not impact learning immersion or learning confidence. Even though there was no effect of role rotation, the results did indicate that experience as a leader in simulation is associated with less learning immersion and confidence. These results suggest the need to carefully debrief the lead nursing student. Further, in order to prevent nursing instructor burn-out and encourage participation of students in learning, future work should examine increased repetition frequency.
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.
