This study was conducted to investigate the effects on problem solving ability and learning satisfaction in nursing students using a teaching method with a standardized patient (SP) receiving blood transfusion. METHOD: The research design was a quasi-experimental pre-and-post-test control and experimental group for the methodological comparison study. Participants were 43 (Exp.=22, Cont.=21) nursing students in G city. The experimental group participated in the teaching class using SP. The control group received conventional education using a simple model. Data were collected between June 5 and July 15, 2015, through self-report structured questionnaires and data were analyzed using the SPSS/WIN 21.0 program.
There were significant differences in the level of problem solving ability (t=-2.75, p=.009), and learning satisfaction (t=-2.53, p=.016) between the experimental and control groups.
The research findings indicate that, the teaching method using an SP is more effective in improving nursing students' problem solving ability and learning satisfaction compared to conventional education using a simple model. In the future it is necessary to develop scenarios of various cases and content, and to test their effectiveness.
