Abstract

Abstract: Education in medication administration is essential to patient safety, but there is limited evidence to describe the best way to influence clinical practice by nursing students. In a medication administration pilot study, the state anxiety of 44 nursing students was evaluated presimulation and prior to giving medications in the clinical setting. Two-way analysis of variance for repeated measures indicated no significant differences between high-fidelity simulation, low-fidelity simulation, or video training groups. However, high- and low-fidelity simulation led to decreased anxiety in the clinical setting, whereas video training led to greater anxiety.
