Abstract

Aim:

The aim of study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the training material based on low-level environmental fidelity simulation in drug-dose calculation skills in senior nursing students.

Methods:

A quasi-experimental design with one group. The sample included senior nursing students attending a nursing school in Turkey in the period December 2012–January 2013. Eighty-two senior nursing students were included in the sample. Data were obtained using a data collection form which was developed by the researchers. A paired-sample t-test was used to compare the pretest and post-test scores.

Results:

The difference between the mean pretest score and the mean post-test score was statistically significant (P < 0.05).

Conclusion:

This study revealed that the training material based on low-level environmental fidelity simulation positively impacted accurate drug-dose calculation skills in senior nursing students.
