This descriptive research was conducted to explore the relationship between nursing students’ perceptions on the high-fidelity simulation learning and perceptions on learning outcomes regarding Thailand Qualification Framework. The sample were 64 3rd year nursing students experienced in learning through high-fidelity simulation being selected by a simple random sampling. The research tool included questionnaires measuring the perceptions on high-fidelity simulation learning and the perceptions on learning outcomes regarding Thailand Qualification Framework. The questionnaires had reliability coefficients of .88 and .96, respectively. The data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and Pearson's correlation coefficient statistics.
The results of the study showed that perceptions on the high-fidelity simulation learning and perceptions on learning outcomes regarding Thailand Qualification Framework were on a high level.
The perceptions on the high-fidelity simulation learning were related to overall perceptions on learning outcomes regarding Thailand Qualification Framework at a moderate level (r = .58, p <.001). When considering each aspect, the perceptions on the high-fidelity simulation learning was significantly related to the perceptions of learning outcomes regarding Thailand Qualification Framework, especially nursing practice performance domain that yielded the highest level (r = .57, p = .000).
Therefore, nursing practice performance can be improved by creating awareness by teaching and learning with high-fidelity simulation.
