Comparable with new scientific achievements in the field of medicine, the health care system is experiencing major structural changes that affect every segment and every profession directly or indirectly involved in the health care system. Nursing is a profession based on empathy and vocation, so as such it must adapt to modern medical and health knowledge. The development of the professional identity of nursing is a continuous process that begins with the acquisition of formal education in biomedicine, and continues to develop further through a professional career in a dynamic process in which there is an interaction of education and practical skills that ultimately leads to personal and professional growth and development.

Due to the sophistication and complexity of medical care, nurses are required to have a high level of nursing practice skills. A survey of private university and junior college teachers revealed that the most prevalent problems with students were lack of independence, basic academic ability, and motivation to learn. Class exercises help bring out students’ independence and also play a key role in laying the foundation for good clinical judgment. Therefore, it is necessary to consider exercises that enable students to learn more effectively. This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of exercises in adult nursing classes using student class evaluations from 2018 and 2019.We had students perform exercises in class and then had them fill out a survey afterward. The average score of each question item was 4 or more in both 2018 and 2019, and all exercises were highly evaluated. Even if the students who took the course changed, the exercise earned a positive evaluation. For self-monitoring blood glucose and total parenteral nutrition, items were significantly different between 2018 and 2019, and higher evaluations were obtained in 2019. It is necessary to repeat the evaluation of the exercises, but the exercise items selected this time for study were found meaningful for students, and the time allocation was appropriate. The task is to establish a prelearning and demonstration method that enables students to independently learn and to secure teachers and improve teaching their teaching ability.
