Abstract

Introduction. The evolution of nursing profession in Italy and the modification of university currilula have stimulated the adoption of new didactic methods according to the new educational needs. In the present study the developement of tools and methods for evaluating and measuring clinical competences of undergraduate nursing students at Tor Vergata University of Rome are presented. These methods and tools have been developed by all professionals involved in nursing education.Methods. The new didactic methods have been implemented from the Academic Year 2006/2007. The developed methods and tools have been: the educational web site, the objectives and plans of clinical training for each year of course, the coordinators of clinical activities, the training diary and task, and the in-progress and final evaluation per each year.Results and Discussion. After the two-year experimentation, the distributed training diaries have been 185; all the training tasks with a positive outcome have been 637; students who passed the exam with the new methods and tools have been 294. Conclusion. The preliminary results of the present study do not allow yet to demonstrate all the competencies acquired by the students (this will be possible after November 2009), but show that they more adhere to the clinical education.
