Introduction: Instructors and students have many challenges in completing and presenting logbooks. This study endeavored to investigate the views of nursing students and instructors of Ramsar School of Nursing on logbook-based evaluation.
Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was performed in the second semester of the academic year 2020-2021. The study population was all nursing students studying and clinical instructors working in Ramsar School of Nursing. Seventy-five individuals (65 nursing students and 10 nursing instructors of the internal medicine-surgery internship unit) were included in the study by census method. The researcher-made questionnaire on the perspective of nursing students of logbook-based and traditional method evaluation were used for data gathering. Data analysis was performed using paired and independent t-test and Chi-square.
Results: The perspective of nursing students and clinical instructors about the use of logbooks showed a significant difference concerning order, evaluation, satisfaction, and clinical skills. The mean scores of the perspective of instructors in the dimensions of order and evaluation were higher than students (t=-4/38, p=0.001; t=-5/36, p=0/001). The instructors’ mean score of satisfaction and clinical performance with logbook evaluation was more than students (t=-4/06, P=0.001 vs. t=-3/27, P=0.002). Students believed that the use of logbooks led to more supervision of instructors over their work (t=4/17, P =0.001), but it did not affect their clinical performance (t=-1/8, P= 0.077).
Conclusion: The clinical Instructors evaluated the priority of the logbook over the traditional method to achieve the expected outcomes more positively towards the students. Because the logbook should meet the learning needs of students, using students' opinions in compiling the logbook can be effective in improving student satisfaction and performance.
