Statement of the Problem: Clinical practice environments experienced by nurses and nursing students are changing. As
direct nursing clinical practice becomes more difficult, clinical practice training using standardized patients may be used. The
purpose of this study was to compare the clinical competence and communication skills among the effectiveness of nursing
practicum using standardized patients, performed in the Republic of Korea.
Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: In this study, a systematic review and meta-analysis was done using the Preferred
Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA). The keywords used were ???standardized patient
and nursing', or ???simulated patient and nursing???. We collected research papers by using the Korea Education and Research
Information Service (KERIS), Korean Studies Information Service System (KISS), which is Korea's representative search
database, and searching through Google Scholar and related papers.
Findings: In the first search, 417 papers were collected. We removed 13 duplicate studies and 391 papers that did not meet
the criteria of this study, and finally analyzed 13 papers. Clinical competence variables were discussed in 13 papers, and
communication skill variables in nine papers. In the meta-analysis of the studies dealing with two variables, I square was used
to confirm the inter-study heterogeneity. Finally, the mean effect size of clinical competence variables was found to be 0.842
(95% CI: 0.408???1.275). The mean effect size of the communication skill variable was 0.63 (95% CI: 0.168???1.093).
Conclusion & Significance: Therefore, it was confirmed that nursing practicum using the standardized patients was statistically
significant. This can be used as evidence-based data to optimize the effectiveness of nursing education in Korea.
