Abstract

Student self-efficacy in implementing comfort measures with the laboring client is examined at a baccalaureate school of nursing (BSN) in the midwest. Results indicated that students were not fully confident in their ability to perform these comfort measures towards the end of their Nursing Care of Childbearing Families lecture and clinical courses. These findings suggest that teaching methods are examined to find areas that could use improvement in order to increase student self-efficacy in implementing comfort measures with the laboring client.
