The Effect of COVID-19 Pandemic on the Academic Performance of Nursing Students
Keywords:academic performance, coronavirus, online learning, nursing students
The purpose of this study was to discover how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the academic performance of nursing students and the challenges faced while trying to adapt to the online learning era. A total of 144 respondents filled out the online questionnaire. Convenience sampling was considered the sampling method for the study. Online Google questionnaires were administered in accordance with the COVID-19 precautions being taken by the government to encourage social distancing thereby contributing to minimizing the spread of the virus. 105 of the study participants were female nursing students while very few of them were male (39). The outcome of the research showed that the challenges faced by nursing students were issues of limited time, network glitches and inability to cope when studying online. Those who have a high rating for online education want online education to continue while those that had low ratings for online learning were below average in the academic performance. Online learning for schools is not going away soon, so it should be made as convenient and easily accessible as possible. It is also recommended that students are allowed to give feedback as often as possible in the course of their online education.
