Assess the degree of satisfaction is used to know and identify what we can improve, taking into account the views of those who are tested. Our aim is to cover a group of students from the University of Cadiz, specifically students of 2nd Degree in the School of Nursing (Campus of Algeciras) and of the Faculty of Nursing and Physiotherapy (Extension teaching in Jerez) on the satisfaction to acquire skills related to the knowledge, attitude and skills in the development of clinical practice, reflected in the Practicum I.
Our objectives have been, on the one hand to evaluate the level of satisfaction of the students in the second degree in nursing from the campuses of Jerez and Algeciras in relation the Practicum I and, on the other hand, identify the relevant variables of the proposed study, as well as the differences between both campuses.
Material and method:
Using a descriptive analysis we have studied the frequencies of each of the variables collected in the survey that students of 2nd Degree in Nursing from the campuses of Jerez and Algeciras completed and we have compared the general satisfaction among both samples. The sample used consisted of a total of 114 students from the campuses cited.
We have studied 25 variables. We have highlighted the three most relevant, related to the methodology and ethical issues. These variables are defined as follows:
Variable 17: to introduce students the learning methodology proposal for the Practicum.
Variable 20: Describe the principles of bioethics applied to nursing care and its implications for nursing students.
Variable 21: lets us know how the students understand the description of performance protocols in some ethical dilemmas in nursing care.
The outcome of the study tells us that students are satisfied with the objectives achieved in the Practicum I, however, the results obtained in the seminars offer great variability, while students of Jerez are more satisfied than those of Algeciras.
