Abstract

Clinical simulation in nursing education provides many opportunities for the students to learn and strengthen their clinical competencies in performing various obstetric skills. A Quasi experimental one group post test design was used to assess the effectiveness of student's obstetric skill performance, competency and satisfaction regarding simulation training. Results showed that majority of students performed high after simulation training. Male students proved higher performance compared to female. The students also expressed that simulator training gave competency in performing obstetric skills. 90% of students felt that simulator lab training were useful and more time need to be allotted for simulation lab training in acquiring skills before the actual maternity clinical posting. The findings of the study reveals that simulation based training is an appropriate proactive approach to reducing errors and risk in obstetrics, improving competency, whilst giving the student a multiplicity of transferable skills to improve their performance.
