摘要

Background: The correct and appropriate performance of nursing skills by students can ensure patient safety and care quality. However, developing appropriate teaching and learning strategies to enhance nursing students’ nursing skills and knowledge are challenging tasks for nursing faculty members. Nowadays, smartphones are popular mobile devices that are used on campuses by students and could be considered a potential tool to deliver learning materials to nursing students. Objectives: This study aimed to examine the effects of a skill demonstration video delivered by smartphone on facilitating nursing students’ nursing skill competency and confidence. Design: A randomized controlled trial study design was used. Settings and participants: A convenience sample of nursing students at a university was recruited. Methods: After receiving a regular nursing skills lab demonstration, pre-test data were collected from nursing students in an intervention group (n = 44) and a comparison group (n = 43). Then, students in the intervention group downloaded the skill demonstration video onto their smartphones, while the comparison group did not. Post-test data were collected at 2 weeks after the intervention. Results: There were significant differences in students’ urinary catheterization knowledge (F = 4.219, p = 0.04) and skills (F = 6.739, p = 0.013), but there was no difference in students’ confidence level (F = 2.201, p = 0.142) between the two groups after the intervention. Furthermore, the average score of the satisfaction level regarding the intervention was 4.46 (SD = 0.43) on a scale of 1–5. Conclusions: This study found that delivering learning materials through smartphones to nursing students is suitable. Although there was no significant difference in students’ self-confidence level, students’ knowledge and skills were improved by the intervention. Smartphones can serve as a supplemental tool for learning nursing skills.
