Introduction and Aims
Effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation efforts can lead to saving lives. This skill is especially important for nursing practices. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of two models of simulation based resuscitation training (combined-based simulation versus mannequin-based simulation) with practicing nursing students.
The study was a randomized field trial. A total of 62 nursing students participated in the study: 25 nurses experienced combined-based simulation training, and 36 nursing student were trained with mannequinbased simulation model of training. Self-efficacy, performance and satisfaction of these two groups were assessed and compared before and after participating in these two training modalities.
Findings revealed that self efficacy means score difference between pre and post intervention in mannequin stimulation group was 2.97±1.3 and in combined stimulation was 4.16±1.3. The difference between two groups was statistically significant (P<0/0001). Performance means score between post interventions in mannequin stimulation group was 10.02±2.22 and in combined stimulation was 12.16±1.54. The difference between two groups was statistically significant (P<0/0001). Both groups were satisfied from employed methods. Satisfaction rate was more in mannequin stimulation group compared to combined stimulation group and this difference was statistically significant.
The study results showed that self-efficacy, performance and satisfaction of the students were improved. Therefore, educational centers, depending on their situations and facilities, should use this strategy in teaching programs to prepare them to better serve patients.
