Innovative laboratory learning methods have been developed for students to be more independent and play an active role during the learning period. Students learn by using media such as modules and portable models. The study aimed to determine the effectiveness of portable WSD wound model to improve the wound care clinical skills. Research design: The study used quasi experiment pretest-post test with control group design, respondents were given module and WSD wound model made of synthetic rubber with the tube inserted to a bottle as if a patient were attached a WSD. Sample; A total sample of 90 using the stratified random sampling method, the respondent were divided in two groups by using 2.75 GPA as cut of point. Data analysis: Using independent and dependent t test with α= 0.05, data were gathered using two instruments with a cronbach 1 = 0.8331 and 2= 0.909 that were greater than α table = 0.632. The results: at P-value = 0,001 based on the pre-post test, the mean difference of student clinical lab skills using the portable model increased 0.31 higher than using the non portable model increased only 0.26. In conclution, using the portable model is more effective than the other one.
