Background: Despite the decisive role of nurses in patient’s education, they have limited ability to carry out this responsibility. One of the reasons for this incompetence is insufficient nursing education programs. This study aimed to compare and contrast the effects of multiple teaching methods and conventional methods on knowledge, satisfaction, and performance of bachelorette nursing students.
Methods: We conducted a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, post-test design. A sample of 154 nursing students from Tehran University of Medical Sciences was selected and then randomized into experimental (77) and control groups (77). The control group received conventional teaching, and the experimental group received multiple teaching methods, including scenario writing, role playing, videotaping, and analyzing, in 12 weekly sessions. The obtained data were analyzed by the Chi-square and Mann-Whitney tests in SPSS V. 18.
Results: Multiple teaching methods did not affect nursing students’ knowledge. However, it resulted in higher student satisfaction (P=0.001) and improved performance with regard to patient’s education (P=0.001).
Conclusion: Multiple teaching methods may help students to educate, interact, communicate, and cooperate with patients more effectively.

Plain Language Summary 
Patient education is an important role of nurses. Although nursing students are expected to be skillful in patient education, current programs do not seem able to provide them with appropriate knowledge and fail to meet their satisfaction and performance needs. This study compared the effects of multiple teaching methods and conventional methods on the knowledge, satisfaction, and performance of bachelorette nursing students. The method included writing scenarios about standard patients, playing roles, recording videos, and analyzing the condition in 5 groups of 6 bachelorette nursing students. Teaching with multiple methods facilitates students’ satisfaction and performance through their engagement in the educational process.
