Abstract:


The educational methods continuously should be evaluated. In this research, the views, perceptions and recommendations of undergraduate nursing students on screen-based computer simulation are defined. This was a qualitative research. Two focus group interviews were made. The students said that simulation was beneficial for practice, improved self-confidence, was effective on decision making, and decreased making mistakes. Although the students satisfied the method of this education, the students said that this simulation alone isn’t enough. They said that it should be supported by practice in the skills laboratory to avoid harm to the patient in a real situation.
