Abstract

Context: The use of simulation is one solution to the problem of integrating new care. New nurses must be competent to care for patients in a fast-paced setting where clinical competence and precise and timely decision-making are valued.

Aim: The study aimed to evaluate the effect of simulation-based training on maternity nurses' performance and self-efficacy regarding the management of preeclampsia.

Methods: A quasi-experimental (pre/post-test) design was used. The study was conducted at the obstetric clinical laboratory in the faculty of nursing at port said university and gynecological specialty hospital in Port Said city. A convenient sample of 40 nurses was recruited for the study. Three tools were used for data collection: A structured self-administered questionnaire, nurses’ observational checklists, and a self-efficacy assessment scale.

Results: The present study findings revealed a sample mean age of 29.03±7.66 and a highly statistically significant difference between pre-intervention, immediate post-intervention, and eight weeks post-intervention (p<0.0001) regarding nurses' knowledge, practice, and self-efficacy concerning the management of preeclampsia.

Conclusion: According to the findings, simulation-based training is an effective strategy for increasing midwives' performance and self-efficacy in managing preeclampsia. So, it is recommended that simulation-based training be used in teaching nurses working in the obstetrics and gynecology emergency department to manage high-risk pregnancies.
