|Wound ostomy nursing is one of the nursing specialties and have some roles and responsibilities which are determined by regulations. Nursing students take ostomy and wound care nursing lesson during their third year of nursing education. This study aimed to assess any changes that occurred in state of knowing the roles and responsibilities of wound ostomy nurse following an educational presentation which was carried out from February 16 to March 01, 2016 on 58 nursing students. In the first lesson, a survey was applied to check students’ state of knowing 30 special roles and responsibilities of wound ostomy nurse which are determined by The Ministry of Health of Turkey. Students were asked to select as which of them were “independent role”, “dependent role” or “not nursing role”. Students were given an educational presentation about the special roles and responsibilities of wound ostomy nurse followed by the survey. After two weeks, this survey was reapplied. Fortytwo of the students had never heard of the Nursing Regulations before. Seven of the roles and responsibilities were selected as “not nursing role” in fact they were “independent role” by the students before the education. There were also statistically meaningful differences between pre-post education answers of students about selecting the correct role and responsibility status. Results showed that, educational presentation increased knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of a wound ostomy nurse. It is recommended to teach the specialized nursing lessons based on the Nursing Regulations. It may help students to learn permanently the specific roles and responsibilities of the specialized areas.|
