Introduction: The compilation and implementation of the lesson plan is one of the most important teachers’ activities to achieve effective and high quality teaching. This study was conducted to determine the extent of implementation of lesson plans of specific courses of nursing and midwifery in Qazvin university of medical sciences.
Method: In this descriptive cross-sectional study 16 specialized courses of undergraduate students of nursing (10 courses) and midwifery (6 courses) were studied in second semester2015-2016. The loaded lesson plans during the last two weeks of the semester were given to the students as a compact disc, they were asked to reply via a checklist using a 5-point Likert scale about “how much the lesson plans have been implemented”. They specified the degree of implementation of the lesson plans as complete, high, medium, low and non-conforming. Data analysis was performed using Mann-Whitney, Chi-squared and Spearman correlation coefficients at a significant level of 0.05 through SPSS.
Findings: 149 students completed the check list (69.8% nursing,30.2% midwifery). The majority of students stated that the content of the courses run by the teacher was in full (79.2%) and high (16.8%) conformation, and none of the students pointed out to the inconsistency. The implementation of the lesson plans among nursing and midwifery was significantly different regarding to content presented (P = 0.02), use of teaching aids, interaction between the teacher and the student, the requested assignments and assessment methods (P≤0.001). There was no significant differences between two groups according to the teaching strategies,also beginning and termination of the course.
Conclusion: The almost perfect implementation of the announced lessons plans shows the strength of the two educational groups in Qazvin nursing & midwifery school. Regarding to this cross-sectional study and reviewing only specific courses, it is necessary to conduct such studies at the end of each academic year for all courses. It might be beneficial to improve quality of educational programs.
