Abstract

PURPOSE

METHOD: Subjects were 251 students doing three month practice. Checklists by K Publishing were used to assess skill in measuring blood pressure and sterilized. Measure for satisfaction and dissatisfaction factors were developed by researcher through a literature review. Collected data were processed using SAS. RESULTS: 1. Average score for satisfaction was 3.49+/-0.68 for theoretical subjects of basic nursing, 3.44+/-0.72 for practical subjects and 3.29+/-0.74 for practice. Average score for interest was 3.71+/-0.73. 2. Average score for general satisfaction was 3.52+/-0.56, and the satisfaction factor with the highest score was "It was helpful in improving practical skills after the test"(average 3.78+/-0.78). Average score for general dissatisfaction was 3.13+/-0.59, and dissatisfaction factor with the highest score was "As I did not think deeply, I don't know exactly what mistakes I made"(average 3.41+/-0.94). 3. Students who wanted to study further in the future appeared to be satisfied with practical tests using checklists(F=2.04, p=.038), and students appeared to be dissatisfied with them when they didn't have enough time for practice(F=3.38, p=.010). CONCLUSION: Students' satisfaction was relatively high, particularly as the tests were seen as helpful in improving practical skills after tests.
