Background and Objective: Directing attention to ethics and sublimity of students› academic and professional
development is deemed to be more and more essential in health care and students training. The aim of this study
was to investigate the effect of teaching ethical principles through role playing approach on nursing students›
internship skills at Fasa University of Medical Sciences.
Method and Materials: In a semi-experimental study, 31 nursing students of Fasa University of Medical
Sciences, being at 6th semester, were selected and were randomly divided into two experimental and control
groups. At first, 3 teaching workshops entitled «Familiarity with Ethical Principles» were held for the students in
the experimental group. Then, along with the help of specific scenarios, they practiced ethical principles through
role-playing techniques in their internship courses for 6 weeks. The scores on ethical skills of all students were
assessed by using an ethical skills questionnaire.
Results: The mean age of the students was 21.35 years; the youngest was 19 and the oldest was 28 years.
There was no significant difference between the demographic characteristics (age, GPA) and the scores on ethical
skills of different areas in the experimental and the control groups before performing the study; homogeneity of
the two groups was verified. After examining the results of Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney tests in all dimensions
of the questionnaire, a significant difference was found between the scores of the students in the experimental
and control groups.
Conclusion: The findings of this study showed that teaching ethical principles through role playing in the long
run and during internship can lead to promoting and internalizing ethical skills in nursing students
