Abstract

Background: Simulation has been widely adopted in nursing education, as is known to all, the quality of simulation could be affected by many factors. Since there is not a comprehensive and scientific evaluation Index system, it is important to construct an evaluation Index system to guide high-quality simulation. Objectives: To construct the Evaluation Index system of Nursing Simulation teaching Quality and determine the weight of each indicator. Design: It is a phenomenological research study. Settings: The study was mainly conducted in one universities in China. Participants: 27 nursing education experts from China participated in this study. Methods: This study combines the Delphi method and Analytic Hierarchy Process method. Results: Evaluation Index system of Nursing Simulation teaching Quality is built using Delphi method, including five first level index (Teacher, Student, Simulation design characteristics, Educational practices and Outcomes), 14 secondary index and 62 tertiary index. It's determined through a two-rounded experts consultation involving 27 experts. The recovery rates of two rounds consultation questionnaire were respectively 96.43% and 100%, and coefficient authority was 0.89. The Kendall's W of second and third level index were respectively 0.515 and 0.589 (P < 0.001). And the weighted value of quality index are established at all levels with the consistency ratio (C.R.) <0.1, demonstrating that Teacher (0.4109) came first among the five first-level index followed by Student (0.2593), the Educational practices (0.1812), Simulation design characteristics (0.096) and Outcomes (0.0527). Conclusions: The quality index of nursing simulation education is scientific and reliable, so as its weight assignment. It can be a guidance for high-quality simulation teaching, and it is a valid tool to evaluate the quality of simulation teaching in nursing.
