LOPEZ QUIROS, Laura. Objective and structured clinical evaluation (ECOE) in the masters of Gyneco-Obstetrical and Perinatal Nursing: a systematization of experience. Enfermería Actual de Costa Rica [online]. 2017, n.33, pp.1-17. ISSN 1409-4568.

In search of professional excellence, the master's degree in Gynecological, Obstetrical and Perinatal Nursing at the University of Costa Rica remains at the forefront of teaching and learning processes. The inclusion of clinical simulation is part of these educational innovations since 2012. However, this is the first time that includes ECOES evaluation processes which, in international experiences, have demonstrated relevance in the fulfillment of teaching objectives. This experience is systematized, according to the five times that Oscar Jara establishes in his book. To systematize experiences, with the objective of defining the relevance of the ECOE in terms of meeting the learning objectives of the course. The course teacher and the author collected the experience in a log diary that includes the elaboration of the scenarios, and the creation of the evaluation rubrics. In addition, the stations were recorded. The evaluation was carried out with all the enrolled students, in the course of Gyneco-Obstetric and Perinatal Nursing I. Three stations were established that would allow to evaluate theoretical aspects, technical and social skills in the attention of the people. In addition, evaluation rubrics were created, based on procedural clinical guidelines and Costa Rican social security care protocols. It is concluded that the experience shows a clear relevance of the ECOEs, to evaluate the application of theoretical knowledge and psychomotor, social and communication skills in students who are masters and evidence their preparation to continue with the most complex levels of the career.
