The purpose of this study was to investigate the competence of 3rd year nursing students in the core skills of emergency nursing activities.
A one group pre-post test design was conducted using a Nursing Activities Questionnaire that included 80 nursing activities in a 4-Likert scale. Data were collected from 245 3rd year students who were enrolled in the emergency nursing core skills course. The data was analysed with SPSS 20.0 program using descriptive statistics for performance competence of nursing activities.
Seventy-two nursing activities among 80 nursing activities were significantly increased after the core skill practicum. In particular, the mean scores for evaluating and recording CPR, preventing violence, taking electrocardiography, inserting intravenous cannula, administering subcutaneous injections, and administering intradermal injection increased by more than 3 points on average. Results showed differences by categories of emergency nursing activities and performance competence in care activities related to respiratory, elimination, wound, tubes, tests and treatment, movement and positioning, communication, safety, comfort, and coping with emergency situations were significantly increased after the core skill practicum. However, levels of skill in assessing and monitoring patients were significantly decreased after the practicum.
Based on the results of this study, there is need to correct and revise Emergent Core Skill elements and content within programs at Cheju Halla University. Future evaluative research is suggested to develop a nursing simulation program that focuses on nursing activities as part of a ‘care activity framework’ that places assessment of the patient to the forefront.
