Comparing Effects of Debriefing Methods on Psycho-Motor Skills, Self-Confidence and Satisfaction in Novice Nursing Students: a Quasi-Experimental Study

, , , , and


Purpose: Oral and video-assisted debriefing are commonly used debriefing methods with no evidence of superiority of one to another. The present study aimed to compare the effects of oral and video-assisted debriefing on development of learning outcomes in nursing students.
Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study. Fifty first-year nursing students participated in this study. Participants in the control group participated in oral debriefing and those in the intervention group took part in video-assisted debriefing.
Results: Debriefing improved students’ psychomotor skills, self-confidence, and satisfaction in both groups. There was no statistically significant difference between oral debriefing and video-assisted debriefing in study outcomes.
Conclusions: Both oral and video-assisted debriefing methods have a significantly positive impact on simulation outcomes and can increase preparedness of nursing students before entering clinical settings. Given the widespread use of simulation, more studies are needed to evaluate different methods of debriefing to optimize the usefulness of simulation based learning.
Keywords: debriefing, simulation, video, psychomotor skill, self-confidence, satisfaction
