"Once you begin to read the book, you will not be able to put it down. [An] excellent guide for nursing faculty just getting started with simulations or faculty who are already using this pedagogy."

Computerized patient simulation is an exciting and innovative pedagogical method that allows nurse educators to prepare student nurses for the challenges of clinical practice. This book serves as a step-by-step guide to designing and developing simulated scenarios, and integrating them into nursing curriculums. The authors provide concrete information about the use of simulation in a variety of programs, courses, and schools with flexible simulator uses, including live actors and static mannequins.

This book also provides options for building a learning resource center, and offers guidance on faculty development. Additionally, the contributors present 17 exemplars of actual scenarios in multiple clinical areas, as well as testimonies of practicing faculty.

Key Features:

  • Numerous checklists, including health communication checklists, evaluation criteria checklists to assess student performance, and debriefing guidelines
  • Forms to enhance the realness of the scenario, such as patient data forms, patient medication forms, and assessment tools
  • Suggested readings, lists of skills necessary for scenario enactment, and websites for further researchThis book will encourage the development of critical thinking, reasoning, and judgment, and help to create a new generation of caring, competent, and confident practitioners.
