Abstract

This research aimed to: (1) study a model of nursing practice competency assessment in the labor room by applying an assessment center and (2) assess the quality of a model of nursing practice competency assessment. The participants consisted of 6 nursing instructors in obstetrics and gynecological nursing and 30 nursing students in the third and fourth years of the Bachelor of Nursing Science program from the Faculty of Nursing in Bangkok. The action research design was adopted in this research. Six instruments were used for data collection. Descriptive statistics were used to perform data analysis using EduG version 6.1-e. The results revealed that; (1) nursing students’ scores on nursing practice skills and behaviors met the criteria of 80% and their scores on nursing practice knowledge also met the criterion of 60 percent (2) the inter-rater reliability of the nursing performance evaluation performed by nursing instructors was found at the highest level (3) the estimation of variance components for the G-study p×r×i design found relative and absolute decision coefficients equaling 0.7482 and 0.6767 in Station 1, 0.8962 and 0.8766 in Station 2, and 0.7417 and 0.6706 in Station 3 and the estimation of variance components for the G-study p×i design found relative and absolute decision coefficients equaling 0.4251 and 0.3737 in Station 4 (4) the D Study (ρ2 Abs) in Station 1–4 equaled 0.6767, 0.8766, 0.6706 and 0.3737, respectively and (5) the overall quality of an assessment model, consisting of the propriety, feasibility, utility and accuracy standards, was ranked at the highest level.
