Abstract

Introduction: Simulation training provides opportunities for students to practice and learn in an environment similar to actual environments. The most common finding in childhood diseases is fever. And every pediatric nurse must know and implement the right fever management. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the simulation training on the knowledge level of the students on the care of the febrile child. Methods: This randomized controlled study was conducted with 48 3rd-grade nursing students (24 in intervention group, 24 in control group). In order to provide randomization, attention was paid to ensure that there was no statistical difference between intervention and control groups in terms of pre-simulation trait knowledge level score and anxiety score. Results: The average age of the nursing students is 20.75±1.24, %70.8’i is female. In the control group, the total scores of the knowledge level was 10.33±2.07, the intervention group was 10.25±1.51 in the pre-simulation. Also the total scores of the anxiety level was 42.54±7.82 in the control group; the intervention group was 41.70±8.16. Post simulation period, In the control group, the total scores of the knowledge level was 10.20±1.66; the intervention group was 11.33±1.30. It was determined that the knowledge level scores of the students in the intervention group were increased after the simulation training and this increase was found statistically significant. In the control group, it was determined that the pre-simulation knowledge score of the students decreased after the simulation but this decrase was not statistically significant. Conclusion: In this study, the simulation training was beneficial, and that student’s knowledge level scores have improved.
