THE EFECTIVENESS OF PROBLEM BASED LEARNING MODEL DEPEND ON LEARNING OUTCOMES STUDENT IN COURSE PREGNANCY ON OBSTETRICAL CARE ON DIPLOMA PROGRAM
The changes in a Health education system must be done for better education. Midwifery care in pregnancy is health education courses in midwifery department.

The population and the sampel was the students in the third semesters in the total amount of 38 student divide into 2 groups in random. The control group was discussion group in the amount of 18 people. Problem based learning group (experimental group) consists of 20 people divided into 4 groups, each group consists of five people. The Independent Variable was Problem Based learning while the Dependent Variable was learning outcomes. The results of the research showed there was a significant difference with different test results using a t-test ( t:-5,46) between learning outcomes using problem based learning model and class group discussion on pregnancy midwifery care courses. The problem based learning model is more effective than group discussions.
