Nursing, Health Technician and Midwifery Students’ Perceptions of Their First Fully Online Learning Experience During the Covid-19 Pandemic: A Cross-Sectional Study

Abstract

This paper examines undergraduate nursing, health technician and midwifery students’ perceptions of their first fully online learning experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic period. Online learning was a solution for several countries during the COVID-19 pandemic to pursue studies and protect students. Understanding nursing students perceptions of their experiences related to the online learning is crucial to achieve effectively online learning objectives. Hence, we conducted a mono-centric cross-sectional descriptive study to examine learner’s perceptions of their online learning experiences during this difficult time. This research was conducted among 648 students between 16 March and 16 May 2020 at a public nursing institute in Morocco. STROBE reporting guidelines were used to report findings. The results are encouraging. Students perceived positively their first fully online learning experience. Surprisingly 58% of participants were satisfied from this learning modality. In contrast, heterogeneous opinions surrounded the credibility/pertinence of online learning assessment. This pandemic period was an opportunity to explore the educational potential of online learning in our context. Hence, our institute is called to reinforce integration of online learning-teaching strategy to meet learner’s styles preferences and improve nursing education quality.
