Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of televideo conferencing (TVC) on the academic performance of graduate students in anesthesiology nursing. The study compared local-site students who viewed lectures in person to their distant-site counterparts who viewed lectures via TVC. There were no statistically significant differences in the admission qualifications data between the groups of students studied. The results of the Self-Evaluation Examination (SEE), administered by the Council on Certification of Nurse Anesthetists, were compared at the completion of the first year of the curriculum. No statistically significant differences were found between groups in the mean SEE scores of the students. These findings support the contention that instruction through TVC can be as effective as lectures conducted using the "in person" format.
