Background and aim: Nursing education focuses on the training of competent students which aims to empower students to play their role as professional nurses and eventually to enhance public health .Nursing education is a combination of practical and theoretical experiences of learning .As a process that facilitates learning, clinical education helps the student to integrate theoretical knowledge with skills of practice in the clinical setting.Clinical teaching is the core of nursing education and together with the decrease in clinical learning opportunities should be top priority for research attention. Due the importance of self-efficacy in clinical education and the paucity of studies on self-efficacy and its affecting factors, this study aimed to determine the effect of an educational pre-internship package on nursing students’ self-efficacy for deliver critical care.
Methods: This controlled experimental study was conducted among 37 nursing students at IUMS using census sampling method. Before beginning the internship, the educational intervention was performed for three days in the case groups. The data were collected using demographic information form, self-efficacy questionnaire, and 10 clinical scenarios. The self-efficacy of the test group was examined at baseline and after the intervention, and then compared with the control group. The data were analyzed by SPSS. V 24, through kolmogorov-smirnov test for evaluating the normality of the date and independent t-test and paired t-test for analizing the data.
Results: Our results showed that 17 students were male (45.9%) and 20 (54.1%) were female. The mean age of cases and controls were 23.31±2.94 and 22.38±0.69 years old. According to the results, the mean scores of self-efficacy and its dimensions were not significantly different between the case and control groups at baseline (p > 0.05). However, at the end of the course, the total score of self-efficacy was significantly (< 0.001) higher in the case group (161.26 ± 6.07) compared to the control group (119.72 ± 10.13). Moreover, a significant difference was observed in the total score of the skills test in the case group in comparison with the control group (< 0.05).
Conclusion: The results of this study indicated that Pre-internship educational package for cardiac critical cares has a positive effect on promoting nursing students’ self-efficacy and skills.
