Practical performance in carrying out dressing procedure [ Time Frame: 1 day, immediately after the training simulator ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The practical performance in carrying out dressing procedure of each student was analyzed according to a list of 28 steps of procedure, including the preparation of environment and material, antisepsis, curative application and recording (score: 0 to 35). The list of items used to analyze the steps of the catheter dressing procedure were face and content validated by five experts working in the oncology field.

Dressing of Tunneled Central Venous Catheter
Dressing of Tunneled Central Venous Catheter: Preceptorship's Presence or Use of Auto-instructional Guide

The purpose of this study was to compare the performance of nursing undergraduates in dressing of tunneled central venous access in the simulator, according to the aid of a preceptorship or an auto-instructional guide.

The simulation facilitates the acquisition of knowledge, skills and decision-making required for clinical practice. Mentoring has been employed and valued as pedagogical process qualifier.

The hypothesis of this study was that students who trained with the assistance of a preceptorship had better practical performance when compared to students who used an auto-instructional guide.
