Phlebotomy-Related Self-Efficacy in Long Island Nursing Students: A Pilot Study
Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 12, Number 4, ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Hands-on phlebotomy training is often absent from undergraduate nursing curricula. Hands-on skill training improves student nurses' self-efficacy, resulting in positive outcomes for the novice nurse and patients. A quantitative pilot study was implemented to determine if a 3-hr hands-on phlebotomy training seminar would affect the self-efficacy of undergraduate nursing students. Self-efficacy scores were higher in the intervention group than the comparison group. A hands-on phlebotomy training seminar should be offered as an elective for undergraduate nursing students to improve levels of self-efficacy.
