The aim of this quasi- experimental study was to investigate the effects of using standardized patients in nursing education on nursing students' psychomotor skills development process. Sample is composed by 87 (43 control group; 44 experimental group) first-grade nursing students enrolled at Hacettepe University Faculty of Nursing Fundamentals of Nursing Course during the 2012-2013 academic year, spring semester. The students in the control group practiced arterial blood pressure measurement and subcutaneous injections with a partial task trainer, while the students in the experimental group practiced these skills either on standardized patients or using a hybrid simulation at the clinical skills laboratory. Data were analyzed through numbers, percentages, mean, standard deviation, independent simple t test and Mann Whitney U test. According to findings, it was determined that experimental groups' arterial blood pressure measurement mean score (83± 3.1) was statistically higher (<0.001) than control groups mean score (76 ± 7.6). However subcutaneous injections mean score of groups were quite close [control group (62± 6.4), experimental group (62± 4.5)]. In addition, first practice with standardized patients caused students to feel uncomfortable; however, the students reported that this method invoked their interest and curiosity, helped to reduce their anxiety, boosted their self-confidence, facilitate communication with patient and positively affected their learning of professional responsibilities. Based on the results of this study use of standardized patients in nursing education is suggested.
