The purpose of this evaluation project was to determine the impact of an interactive videodisc (IVD) simulation in labor and delivery on clinical confidence and learning with junior level nursing students.



Research questions addressed were: 1) Is there a difference in clinical confidence and learning between students completing an IVD simulation in combination with a clinical experience versus those students completing only a clinical experience? 2) Does the order in which the students receive the IVD program affect the clinical confidence and learning outcomes? 3) Following completion of the IVD program, what overall evaluation comments do students have?



Two clinical groups of students were created from the total 39. Both groups were pretested on knowledge and clinical confidence. Group l completed the IVD program before providing clinical care in the labor setting. Group 2 received a traditional clinical experience first, followed by the IVD program.



Using multivariate analysis of variance, it was concluded that students completing an IVD program plus the clinical experience had significantly greater clinical confidence than those students completing only the clinical experience (p < .034). Multivariate repeated measures analysis revealed that following administration of the IVD program alone, students also had a significant increase in confidence from their baseline levels (p < .033). However, clinical confidence of students who completed the clinical alone did not have a significant change. The order of the IVD program made no significant difference in clinical confidence or learning, but examination of the slopes of the growth lines indicated that the IVD program contributed more than the clinical experience. Reliability of the confidence tool via Cronbach's alpha was .87. In regards to learning, analysis of covariance revealed that students completing an IVD program plus the clinical experience had significantly greater learning that those students completing only the clinical experience (p < .007). All other learning comparisons were not significant. Evaluation comments pointed to details that could be improved and were filled with positive comments about the program.
