Research Design of this study was systematic review. The purpose was to study the model of deliberate practice for development of nursing practice skills. The study procedure was shown as followed: 1) Search for evidence-based research, the researcher used the PICO framework to search for research data related to deliberate practice in undergraduate nursing students between 2008 and 2018 from the electronic databases, for example, Academic Search Complete, PubMed, ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health Source, CINAHL, 2) Assessing the level of reliability of empirical evidence, 3) Analyzing the evaluation of the quality of empirical evidence.
Research results found nine qualified research studies, which were analyzed and synthesized for recommendations with the following main issues: 1) Using of deliberate practice for nurse assistants and nurse students to facilitate competency and performance improvement; 2) Nursing practice skills by using deliberate practice should be applied in a complex situation that involve patient safety such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and feeding, etc.; 3) Providing feedback immediately after finish practice.; 4) Teaching method, assessment method, learning resource of deliberate practice on nursing practice skills; 5) Motivating learners for engagement in well-defined tasks and self-learning continuously.
Suggestions from the research, in policy, could be applied in the curriculum that was taught in nursing practice. In the implementation, the instructor should be prepared to have the skills of using the deliberate practice, an orientation for the students before studying, including preparation of educational resources to be ready to use in practice time. In addition, the suggestion of the future research should be experiment in the form of pilot study to evaluate results and applied in the practice of the institute.
