Abstract
Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of different simulators for the development of students’ urethral catheterization skills.

Material and Methods: This study was conducted using a quasi-experimental design with 2nd year nursing students (n=80) at a nursing school in the Aegean Region of Turkey between November and December of 2018. This study was approved by the ethics committee of a university (Approval Number: 2016-273). Students were randomly assigned to three groups (partial urethral catheterization simulator, whole-body simulator, or partial urethral catheterization simulator with poster). All participants were evaluated through a hybrid simulation method. The data were analyzed using the Chi-square test, Wilcoxon Signed-Rank test, and Kruskal-Wallis test.

Results: As a result of this study, it was shown that while the knowledge levels of the students did significantly increase in all groups (p<0.05), the performance scores of the students significantly increased only in the partial urethral catheterization simulator with the poster group (p<0.05).

Conclusions: The use of a partial urethral catheterization simulator with poster did significantly develop the urethral catheterization skills of the nursing students.
