Introduction: Since neonatal nursing MSc program has not been evaluated systematically, it requires systematic and coherent evaluation for qualitative and quantitative improvement. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the neonatal intensive care nursing MSc program based on CIPP model in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: As a CIPP-based educational evaluation, this descriptive cross-sectional study was performed in 2014 on 40 participants including one head of department, 7 faculty members of pediatric nursing department, 25 students and 7 graduates of NICU nursing MSc program at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. Participants were selected by means of census method. The program was evaluated using a researcher-made CIPP-based questionnaire that consisted of context, input, process, and product dimensions. Experts’ opinion was used to verify face and content validity and Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was used to determine the questionnaire’s reliability. Data were analyzed in SPSS software.
Results: Findings showed that the mean scores of context (47/18±7/77), process (120/23±24/5) and product (59/85±17/16) were significantly higher than the average while the mean score of input (84/18±17/9) was lower (p=0. 003).
Conclusion: Results indicate that the input aspect of the neonatal intensive care nursing MSc program at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences is at an undesirable level. Therefore, it seems that improvement of the educational quality and revision of the program require greater emphasis on enhancing factors that might affect the input, especially curriculum and faculty members.
