learning management, standardized patient, simulation in home visit


               The objective of quasi-experimental was effect of learning instructional by using standardized patients as simulation in home visits. The participants consisted of 48 nursing students in the 3rd year. The study was conducted from January-December 2019. The intervention was the standardized patients as simulation in home visits. The data was collected by using a knowledge questionnaire, skills at home nursing practice, confidence in the nursing home operation, and satisfaction of learning management questionnaires. Sandardized patients were used in virtual situations. The data was analyzed by using statistical percentage, mean, standard deviation and T test. Results of the study found that the average post achievement score (x̄ = 12.56, SD = 2.14) was higher than the pre-test (x̄ = 10.83, SD = 2.18). The skills at home nursing practice was at 75 percent, the mean of confidence in the nursing home operation was at a high level (x̄ = 4.04, SD= 0.49), and the satisfaction with the learning management by using standardized patients as simulation in home visits showed a high-level mean (x̄ = 4.34, SD= 0.62).

            In conclusion, learning management by using standardized patients as simulation in home visits could be implemented for greater learning outcomes, self-confidence and satisfaction of nursing students.
