Abstract

Background & Objective: Providing a more realistic training environment can help learners to better understand what they were taught. Nursing students can be prepared for real critical scenarios such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by using simulation in training. This study was aimed to evaluate the effect of simulation training on nursing students’ knowledge and skill in CPR.
Methods: This was a quasi-experimental study with pre- and post-test on 30 participants. Data was collected using a questionnaire before and after the training. The results were analyzed by ANOVA and paired t-test using SPSS.
Results: In the pre-test, knowledge score was 10.50 ± 0.16 while in the post-test it was 17.60 ± 0.18. Also skill score in the pre-test and post-test was 11.50 ± 4.74 and 18.47 ± 2.17, respectively. Comparing the means showed a significant difference between the results of pre- and post-test (P = 0.030).
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, simulation method improved nursing students knowledge and skills and should be considered in education planning by authorities.
