Abstract

Background & Objective: To assess the characteristics of a good teacher, one must inquire the
teachers’ opinion in addition to the students’. Hence, this study was aimed to determine the
characteristics of effective teachers and pertinent effective educational factors according to the
nursing teachers and students’ point of view in schools of nursing in Kerman University of
Medical Sciences.
Methods: In this descriptive-comparative study, 358 students and 89 teachers from Kerman, Bam,
Zarand, and Jiroft schools of nursing participated. Data was collected using a researcher-made
questionnaire which covered five domains.
Results: According to the students’ point of view, interpersonal communication, teaching skill,
personal characteristics, evaluation skill, and educational rules were priorities in order of
importance whereas teachers gave priority to teaching skill, educational rules, evaluation skill,
personal characteristics, and interpersonal communication. The importance of interpersonal
communication and personal characteristics according to the students’ opinion was significantly
higher than what teachers believed (P=0.0001 and P=0.04 respectively). However, the importance
of teaching skill and educational rules was significantly higher in teachers’ opinion when
compared to the students’ (P=0.0001 in both cases). Lack of enough time to study was the most
important effective factor in teachers’ efficacy regarding the opinion of both teachers and
students.
Conclusion: Despite the big difference between the teachers and the students’ point of view, it is
suggested to consider improvement of communication skills together with modern teaching
methods in teachers’ empowerment programs. Educational managers should also direct their
programs to gain a better background for studying, learning and efficacy with a decrease in
working hours.
