Abstract :

Background: Although previous studies showed that simulation-based teaching contributed to nursing students? learning outcomes, satisfaction, and self-confidence, there is no study related to using high-fidelity simulation in nursing education and its effects on students? learning outcomes in Turkey. Aim: A quasi experimental design was used to determine the effects of high-fidelity simulation experience on students? learning outcomes, students? self-confidence, and satisfaction. Methods: The sample consisted of 20 experimental and 20 control group nursing students. Data was collected using a Trauma Case Questionnaire, Student Satisfaction Questionnaire and Patient Intervention Self-Confidence/Competency Scale. The data was collected between January 2012 and May 2012. Results: There were no statistical differences between experimental and control group learning outcome scores (p>0.05). After the simulation session, the experimental group students? satisfaction mean score was 114▒5.09 (out of 135) and confidence/ competency score was 76,35 ▒5.69 (out of 90) There was a statistically significant strong positive correlation between students? satisfaction score and confidence/competence scores (r=0.974, p< 0.000). Conclusion: This study indicated that students? satisfaction and confidence/competency were high after participating in highfidelity simulation sessions. According to the study results, it is recommended to use high-fidelity simulation in nursing education as an innovative teaching strategy to develop students? clinical competencies and confidence.
