Abstract

Introduction

Simulation practices provides many opportunities to students in a safe and controlled environment like, critical thinking, problem solving, developing necessary skills for clinical reasoning.

Objective

This study was performed in order to evaluate the effectiveness of simulation training on maternity-women health course. Method: The research is a descriptive study. A total of 48 students were included in the sampling who receive maternity and women's health course. View of ten students were evaluated in interwiew method and were selected by random sampling method. For the analysis of data percentage and descriptive content analysis were used. Results: Of the students, 72.9% stated they excitement, 39.6% stated they felt anxiety, 25% stated they felt fear and 25% stated they felt complicated feelings about simulation. When the students’ views which are evaluated qualitatively are revised, participant students evaluated simulation practices as a teaching process for having a chance to practice their theoretical knowledge without the risk of harming the patient. The observer students stated that even while observing the scenario from outside their anxiety levels increased, and they revised their theoretical knowledge during the steps of practice, and evaluated themselves. Conclusion: It is considered that usage of simulation education methods will contribute to development of students ’skills in clinical environment.
