Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH) is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide and is
responsible for about a quarter of all maternal deaths. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of simulationbased
learning regarding management of PPH in terms of competencies among nursing students in selected nursing
colleges of Haryana. Quasi- experimental design was adopted to assess the effectiveness of simulation based learning in
terms of competency of nursing students. Data was collected from 109 students studying in BSc. 4th Year in M.M.
College of Nursing and M.M. Institute of Nursing. Purposive sampling technique was used to randomly allocate the
participants in experimental and comparison group. The study findings showed that majority (76.7%) and (73.5%) of the
nursing students were female in experimental and comparison group respectively. In experimental group, the mean posttest
knowledge score (23.7 ± 4.1) and (22.3 ± 4.2) was higher than the comparison group. The mean post-test skills
score (27.2 ± 4.3) in experimental group was higher than (24.7 ± 5.3) in comparison group. The mean post-test CDMA
score (12.7±2.1) in comparison group was higher than the mean post-test CDMA score (9.6±2.5) in experimental
group. The calculated ‘t’ value post-test skills scores (t=2.65; p=0.00*) which was found to be statistically significant at
0.05 level of significance. The study concluded that Simulation based learning was effective in enhancing the competency
of nursing students regarding management of PPH.
