The Effect of High-Fidelity Simulation-based Education on Nursing Students’Anxiety and Self-Efficacy who Face with the First Clinical Practice


This study examined the effect of high-fidelity simulation-based education on nursing students’ anxiety and self-efficacy that face with the first clinical practice. An untreated control group design with pretest and posttest was used for the study. Forty-four nursing students were randomly assigned to the experimental group and control group. The high-fidelity simulation-based education was conducted to the experimental group. The data gathered were subjected to appropriate descriptive and inferential treatment using the SPSS 20.0. The findings has shown that the experimental group had lower anxiety (t = –8.1, p<.001) and had higher self-efficacy (t = –6.42, p<.001) than the control group. Results indicate that the high-fidelity simulation-based education is effective means of decreasing anxiety and increasing self-efficacy of nursing students in facing first clinical practice. Additional repeated study is required to prove positive effect of the high- fidelity simulation-based education.
