Abstract

Background and aim: Obtaining, positioning and managing intravenous access is complex but common procedure in nursing care practice. Learning the right knowledge and skills during basic nurse education is an essential goal. The use of simulators allows for a better acquisition of skills, guaranteeing safety for patients and nursing students. However, the literature is still lacking on the use of simulation for intravenous cannulation procedures and device management, presenting few conflicting results. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of simulator-based learning on vascular access management in a population of nursing students.

Methods: Using comparative observational study design we evaluated the effect of simulator learning on vascular access management in a nursing student population.

Results: The differences between the scores at t1 between the groups of students are significant for obtaining vascular access with relative management of the device and intravenous therapy (t = 3.062, p = 0.001), while at t0, albeit with strong differences in scores means (t = 0.061, p = 0.871) are not statistically significant. Early use of the simulator is also fundamental over time (t = 5.362, p = 0.001). Furthermore, the satisfaction noted by the students during the clinical simulations improves with the increase in the number of the same, as it can influence the single performance.

Conclusions: Nursing training based on the use of simulators favors a better acquisition of skills compared to traditional didactic.
