Abstract

Background & Objective: Numerous factors together are the cause of satisfaction with the field of education. Thus, the lack of presence of only one factor can reduce an individual's satisfaction or cause dissatisfaction with the field of study. Satisfaction with study is an influential construct in the education process which consists of students' perception of training programs, the circumstance required for the community, and teachers’ guidance. Since learning has a strong relationship with satisfaction with the field of study, the present study aimed to investigate the effect of feedback on interest in the field of study.

Methods: This quasi-experimental study was performed on all nursing students in their 7th semester in schools of nursing and midwifery in Arak and Shazand, Iran, in the first half-year of 2014-2015. The students were undertaking their internship in the post coronary care unit (post-CCU) of Amir Kabir Hospital of Arak, Iran. The participants were randomly divided into two groups of intervention and control. Each group was divided into subgroups of 7 and 8 students and each group undertook their internship in 4 weeks in the morning shift. To determine the effects of these methods, after completion of each stage of the internship, all students completed the questionnaire and the results were compared.

Results: 17 (94.4%) students in the intervention group were interested in nursing and only
1 (3.3%) student reported their lack of interest in the field of nursing. A significant difference was observed between the intervention and control groups in this respect (P < 0.007).

Conclusion: It can be concluded that the feedback provided for the students during the training increased their satisfaction with the field of nursing.
