Objective: To test the effectiveness of an electronic book (e-book) entitled “Male Indwelling Urinary Catheterization” on students’ learning achievement and satisfaction. Methods: The pre - experimental research was conducted using one -group pretest - posttest design. The participants were 90 sophomore nursing students at Rangsit University. The instruments included e-book entitled “Male Indwelling Urinary Catheterization”, learning achievement assessment test, and satisfaction questionnaire. Content validity of the instruments were evaluated by three experts. The learning achievement assessment test and satisfaction questionnaire showed Indexes of Item Objective Congruence (IOC) values of .98 and 1 respectively. Reliability of learning achievement assessment test with KR - 20 was .87. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of satisfaction questionnaire was .98. The learning achievement assessment test was used for both pretest and posttest, and the satisfaction questionnaire was used only after learning with the e-book. Descriptive statistics, Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test and One Sample t-test were used to analyze the data. Results: The posttest learning achievement scores were significantly higher than the pretest one (p <. 001). Moreover, the satisfaction toward the e-book was significantly higher than 80% (p < .001). Conclusion: The e-book, entitled “Male Indwelling Urinary Catheterization” effectively promotes learning. Development of other fundamental nursing courses to e-book format is recommended.
