was used. The population consisted of 146 second
year nursing students who were selected through a
purposive sampling method. The research instruments
were the average score and a satisfaction evaluation
form. Data were analyzed by paired t-test.
Results: It was found that the students’ knowledge
after using the jigsaw cooperative learning technique
on irrigation procedures was significantly higher than

satisfaction was at the highest level.
Conclusion: The jigsaw cooperative learning
technique can be successfully used to improve the
level of student knowledge.
