Abstract

HOLLAND and COLLEAGUES, Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Nursing, Bryan. Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Nursing, Bryan. Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Nursing, Bryan. holland@tamhsc.edu conducted a study to assess the effect of autogenic training upon self-efficacy, anxiety and performance in a nursing student simulation.

Background

The increased anxiety experienced by nursing students during simulations can serve as a significant barrier to learning.

Methodology

The use of anxiety-reducing techniques such as autogenic training (AT) can mitigate the negative effects of anxiety and improve the overall learning experience. The investigators in this study sought to understand the effect of AT on student performance and self-efficacy during simulation experiences.

Results

The use of AT was an effective technique to decrease anxiety and increase performance among nursing students during nursing simulations.

Conclusion

Reducing anxiety during simulations can improve the student learning experience.
