Achievement of Teaching by Using Case Study Method Combined With Concept Mapping on Ability Development of Nursing Processamong Nursing Students
An experimental research study aimed to evaluate the achievement of teaching by using case study method combined with concept mapping on ability development of nursing process among baccalaureate nursing students in clinical implementation and to evaluate baccalaureate nursing students’ satisfaction. A convenience sampling (n=64) was randomly assigned to experimental group (n=32) and control group (n=32). The experimental group was taught to use case study method combined with concept mapping to implement nursing care plan. The control group was taught to use traditional to implement nursing care plans.
Results: Significant difference (p<.001) were found not only on the case study between control group and experimental group but also on the clients in clinical setting between control group and experimental group. The experimental group was satisfied to teach by using case method combined with concept mapping at superior. The highest satisfactions were the critical thinking, active learning and help clinical problem solving
Conclusion: The findings suggest that case study method combined with concept mapping is effectiveness in helping students develop the implementing of nursing process skills, which are extremely important for nursing students or nurses and other health care professionals.
