The purpose of this study was to try out two different learning sessions related to the bed bath procedure.
Six research items were described: The study has a descriptive, quantitative design, and contains elements that characterize clinically controlled trials .
This form was translated into Norwegian at NTNU in 2010, and it was in this connection that permission was given to use it further .
The instruments were translated from English into Norwegian and then translated back into English, according to Polit and Beck . Form 1 was completed immediately after the first training session, whereas Form 2 was filled out a short time after clinical practice (Table 1).
Demographic data collected included the respondents’ age, whether they had experience from practice before, and how many hours they had trained with the procedure in question before clinical practice.
The implementation was somewhat different for the two groups as regards preparation for the exercise and teaching role, which is outlined in Table 2.In clinical laboratory practice (CLP), the students simulate patient situations as a preparation for internship.Various CLP models have been tried out to meet the students’ prerequisites and learning strategies. The purpose of this study was to try out two different learning sessions related to the bed bath procedure. The study has a descriptive, quantitative design with elements from clinically controlled trials. The population of 160 first-year students was randomly divided into two classes. Two questionnaires were answered with six-month intervals: Form 1 immediately after the first training session and Form 2 a short time after clinical practice. A majority of the nursing students reported that the exercises in the clinical lab were a good way to prepare for the practice, although most of them did not perceive that the procedure conducted at the university resembled how it is conducted in clinical practice.It is also questioned to what extent the preparations within the university should be extended, so that training sessions (simulation) can replace some of the time spent in clinical practice [10, 11].The current project was completed for freshmen in bachelor’s nursing in the spring of 2014 and was part of the CLP before the first clinical practice in nursing homes.It is a cross-sectional study in which data were collected using two questionnaires answered with six-month intervals.The study was approved by the Norwegian Social Data Services (NSD).Each class was divided into half so that the total was held in four training sessions.The forms were inspired by a questionnaire developed for the National League for Nursing .Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Department of Health Sciences Gjøvik, NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Postboks 191, 2802 Gjøvik, Norway Correspondence should be addressed to Copyright © 2018 Elisabeth Solvik and Solveig Struksnes.This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.
