Evaluation of Teaching Strategies on Peripheral Venipuncture Used with University Students

Objective: To evaluate two teaching strategies on peripheral venipuncture used with university students. Methods: Quasi-experimental study conducted from October to November 2015 with 82 nursing students of a private university in Ceará. In order to check the previous knowledge of students, a pre-test was held and, after implementation of the educational strategy, a post-test on Peripheral Venipuncture was applied. A binomial test was used to analyze data and p values <0.05 were considered statistically significant. Results: The students showed good acceptance of the strategies used. However, the use of hypermedia reached statistically significant differences (p<0.000) between the number of correct answers in the pre-test and the posttest when compared to the results of the positive control group. Conclusion: The experimental group showed better performance in the post-test compared to the positive control group with the dialogic lecture.
