Introduction: Given the variety of educational methods and the conditions and facilities, selecting appropriate methods is one of the instructors’ practices to achieve educational goals. The aim of this study was to compare Nursing Students’ Satisfaction with CD-based and traditional education at Tehran University of Medical Sciences. Methods: This research was a quasi-experimental study. The study population consisted of all nursing students who had to pass community health course (3) in 2012-2013 academic years (n=38). The participants were divided equally into two groups of CD-based education and traditional education through randomized block allocation method. Data collection tool was a researcher-made questionnaire which measured students’ satisfaction with the methods and was completed at the end of the course. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation), Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA), Chi-square test and independent t-test. Results: The means and standard deviations of satisfaction were 74.37±16.31 and 58.74±15.17 (out of 100) for the experimental and control groups respectively. The comparison of satisfaction mean scores showed a significant difference between groups (P=0.006). Conclusion: According to the findings, students seem to be more satisfied with CD-based education than traditional education. Instructors and policymakers then may employ CD-based education in teaching theoretical courses of nursing or use it in combination with other methods.
Keywords: Traditional education, CD-based education, satisfaction, nursing students.
