Abstract
Introduction: The purposes of this study were to de- scribe the simulation integrated with problem-based learning (SIM-PBL) module to educate the nursing process for clients with hypertension and to evaluate its effectiveness on nursing students’ self-efficacy (SE). Methods: This study was a one group pre- and post- test design. Twenty five students received a 5-hour SIM-PBL program focused on nursing care of clients with hypertension. A newly developed self-report questionnaire was used to assess SE in four areas of the nursing process with a scale of 0 (not at all confi- dent) to 10 (totally confident). The four areas were subjective data assessment, physical examination, prioritizing nursing care and health promotion ad- vices. Results: At baseline, students’ SE ranged from 5.5 ± 1.4 (prioritizing nursing care) to 7.6 ± 1.4 (sub- jective data assessment). After SIM-PBL education, all areas of nursing process presented statistically sig- nificant improvements of SE. The improvements were most noticeable in prioritizing nursing care. Conclu- sion: The SIM-PBL module was effective in improv- ing the students’ self-efficacy in the nursing process for patients with hypertension. Further studies are recommended in developing SIM-PBL modules for diverse nursing topics and evaluating their effective- ness in various aspects of students’ competency.
