Description In order to provide safe medical care, accurate information transmission is essential. Incorrect information transmission could lead to a serious accident. We developed a social skills training (SST) educational intervention to enhance the skills of nursing students in information transmission, specifically delivering and receiving instructions. The participants were second-year nursing students in a three-year program (N = 120, Mean age = 20.3, SD = 2.2). SST was performed after a 90-minute lecture on transmitting and taking directions We then administered a five-part self-evaluation questionnaire that found that the nurses rated their skills in these areas significantly higher immediately after SST and that this effect was maintained 6 months after training In fact, three of the five skills for taking direction (verbal confirmation, F(2, 176) = 18.63, p < .001; confirmation of diagnosis, F(2, 176) = 34.24, p < .001; and uncertain execution, F(1.61, 141.75) = 57.02, p < .001), and one of the three skills for transmitting directions (reporting confirmation, F(2, 176) = 33.14, p < .001) increased over time, whereas the others, such as appointment of a suitable person, level adjustment, and evaluation and confirmation of the implementation process, did not The SST program on transmitting and taking directions thus had some effect on nursing students’ skills, but it was largely limited to skills related to implementing instructions and ideas, which significantly increased and in some cases persisted Skills that require outreach to others are more difficult to foster; in particular, in the first half of the learning schedule, it is necessary to strengthen instruction in skills related to uncertain execution, verbal confirmation, and confirmation of diagnosis. Article DOI: https://dx.doi.org/10.20319/lijshls.2015.s11.227237 This work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-commercial 4.0 International License.
