About

Background: Nursing education aims to provide students with knowledge and skills related to the profession and develop students in terms of personal characteristics such as clinical decision-making, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Innovative approaches and interactive learning strategies are needed during education periods to increase skills and personal development. Aim: The study aimed to investigate the effect of computer simulation and imagery learning techniques in psychomotor skills training of nursing students on self-confidence and anxiety in clinical decision-making and academic achievement. Design: It is an experimental study with a pretest-posttest design with two intervention groups. Setting: The study was conducted between December 2023 and January 2024 at the faculty of health sciences of a university in Turkey's central region.

Background: Nursing education aims to provide students with knowledge and skills related to the profession and develop students in terms of personal characteristics such as clinical decision-making, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Innovative approaches and interactive learning strategies are needed during education periods to increase skills and personal development. Aim: The study aimed to investigate the effect of computer simulation and imagery learning techniques in psychomotor skills training of nursing students on self-confidence and anxiety in clinical decision-making and academic achievement. Design: It is an experimental study with a pretest-posttest design with two intervention groups. Setting: The study was conducted between December 2023 and January 2024 at the faculty of health sciences of a university in Turkey's central region. Methods: The Turkish version of the "Self-Confidence and Anxiety in Clinical Decision Making" scale was used at the beginning (pre-test) and end (post-test) of the four-week sessions of the interventions. Moreover, the "Academic Achievement Test" was used at the end of the interventions. Differences in mean scores between the groups were analyzed with mixed-design ANOVA.

CAST GROUP
Experimental group
Description:
After the training given with the demonstration method, the training videos on https://www.montgomerycollege.edu/academics/departments/nursing-tpss/nursing-simulation-scenario-library.html were shown to the participants using interactive training methods in parallel with this training. Each session lasted approximately 30-45 minutes. The sessions were repeated in the same environment on the same day and time, once a week, for a total of four weeks (four times).
Treatment:
Other: Computer-assisted simulation technique training group
Imagery GROUP
Experimental group
Description:
After the training given with the demonstration method, scenarios suitable for the imagery technique were prepared by the second trainer (Ö.S.A.) in parallel with this training and CAST training. The internal mental visualization format (as if the students were doing the events themselves) was preferred for the imagery technique. The content of the scenarios was examined by three academic nurses who completed their doctoral education in addition to the authors, and expert opinions were taken. The flow of the scenarios was discussed with the experts until a consensus was reached and the final scenario was created. This technique lasted approximately 30-35 minutes.
