Main Article Content
Simulation-based learning (SBL) is used extensively in nursing education both in Thailand and internationally. However, based on literature reviews, there are few studies about simulation-based learning in Thailand. The objective of this quasi-experimental research using one group posttest design was to examine effects of the simulation-based learning model for nursing practicum preparedness for patients with congestive heart failure on students’satisfaction and self-confidence in learning of the 3rd year nursing students, Boromarajonani College of Nursing, Bangkok. Kolb’s theory of experiential learning modified by Hall was adapted as the framework for this study. Samples were 32 third year nursing students, Boromarajonani College of Nursing, Bangkok. Research instruments were simulation-based learning model and questionnaires for examining students’ satisfaction, and students’ self-confidence in learning. Data were collected by managing simulation-based learning using high-fidelity simulation for samples in March 2017. After the SBL, samples answered the questionnaires. Data were analyzed using frequency, mean, and standard deviation.
The main findings found that samples learnt by using SBL for nursing practicum preparedness for patients with congestive heart failure rated their satisfaction and self-confidence in learning at high levels (Mean = 4.88, SD = 0.21; Mean = 4.42, SD = 0.39, respectively). Nursing education institutions should promote using SBL for preparing students prior they take care patients with complex health problems in order to facilitate students’ satisfaction and confidence in learning and increase patients’ safety.
