Introduction: Clinical education is specifically significant in nursing and midwifery schools. For optimal education, it is essential that students receive feedback from instructors before encountering patients to prevent harm in actual settings. This study aimed to determine midwifery students' viewpoint about feedback and its impact on learning in Clinical Skills Centers (CSCs).
Methods: This was a descriptive study in which 27 second semester midwifery students participated in the study. To prepare a questionnaire, a qualitative study was conducted and based on the themes and subsets of that study, a questionnaire with 22 questions was prepared in four sections and after determining the CVR and CVI, students' views were assessed. The collected data were analyzed with SPSS statistical software version 22.
Results: The majority of the students (69.8%) had a positive view about learning in CSCs, 77.8% felt they had a moderate to high level of knowledge about CSC, and 88.9% believed that they should review their learnings before starting a new session in CSC. They mostly believed that the old and poor quality models are the most important problems they encountered (66.7%.). Students alleged that getting feedback from lecturers improves learning, but they preferred to receive it privately.
Conclusion: Although satisfied with clinical skills centers, shortcomings and inappropriate behaviors can affect students’ interest and motivation. Students feel positive about receiving feedback in CSC, since receiving productive feedback enhances motivation and optimizes learning.
