Neonatal assessment has become a standardized component of clinical care provided to newborn infants, guiding neonatal clinical care and subsequent access to early interventions and services. Approximately 8–12% of neonates require some degree of resuscitation at delivery. This number increases as birth weight decreases. Most cases involve asphyxia or respiratory depression. Below is an algorithm for neonatal resuscitation. Links between neonatal assessments in high-risk infants have been relatively well established. Thus, this study aimed to compare the effects of video simulation and traditional demonstration on second year diploma nursing students learning neonatal assessment skills. This study has reported a significant effect of simulation on knowledge and skills of newborn examination.
