Background: The analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats “SWOT,” has long been used to evaluate the objective(s) of a specific pedagogical program.
Aim: Conduct a SWOT analysis of two distinct maternity courses by gathering data from nursing students from two Faculties of Nursing in central Egypt.
Methods: A comparative analytic design involving third-year students was carried out in (A) and (F) Faculties of Nursing during the academic year 2015/2016.
Results: The response rate of students was more than eighty percent from (F) Faculty of Nursing and greater than fifty percent of students from (A) Faculty of Nursing. A statistical significant difference found in course objectives; innovation methods of teaching; and the adequacy of the learning environment between participants.
Conclusion: The study identified the gaps for achieving the objectives of maternity courses in both Faculties. Recommendations: Utilization of positive points garnered from the investigation and addressing negative findings in both courses.
