Abstract

Background: Simulation is used for teaching neonatal resuscitation; however, studies assessing the impact ofsimulation-based neonatal resuscitation education (SBE) have produced variable results. In this study, we aimed to assess the effect of SBE on nursing students� knowledge.Methods: This experimental study was conducted at Faculty of Nursing of Neishabour University of Medical Sciences on 80 nurses selected through convenience sampling method. The data was collected using a standardized questionnaire for neonatal resuscitation designed based on the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP; 7th Ed, 2016). To analyze the data, we performed independent samples t-test, Mann-Whitney U test, Pearson correlation coefficient, and paired t-test in SPSS, version 16.Results: There were no significant differences in the level of knowledge of neonatal resuscitation between the two groups at pre-test (P=0.452). However, comparison of the two groups at post-test reflected that the mean score of the students in the SBE group was significantly higher than the traditional group (P<0.001).Conclusion: SBE was significantly more effective than traditional neonatal resuscitation education.
