Simulation Center Development Project Simulation Clinical Education Training for PNCI Coppin State University: Helene Fuld School of Nursing Baltimore, Maryland 21216 Simulation Strategies for Partnerships in Clinical Education Together They Stand For Success Faculty Organization Meeting January 22, 2010 Dr. Rena Boss-Victoria, Director Simulation Center
INTRODUCTION The transition from a didactic environment into clinical practice is reported as a time of fear and uncertainty among nursing students. Simulation Education Methodology can lessen the fears and anxieties in students. Ham and O’Rourke, 2004 and Shepherd et al, 2007.
Objectives Define OUTCOMES in the context of strategic planning components for simulation clinical experiences. Present the design of infrastructure, processes and measurable statements for application of clinical practice simulation education methodology for simulation clinical experiences in core clinical courses of the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. 3. Facilitate discussion of faculty on nursing clinical skill acquisitions that can be validated as desired clinical practice simulation teaching outcomes using simulation education methodologies.
CSUs Strategic Goals Aligned to HFSON Strategic Plan (May 2009) CSU Strategic Goals Ensure student success through graduation Enhance the Academic Core of the University Strengthen the Institution Infrastructure HFSON Strategic Goals Explore new opportunities for clinical simulation education Develop a simulation practice and teaching matrix for expansion of approaches to clinical curriculum integration Implement simulation laboratory faculty orientations, training workshops and development plans based on clinical simulation evidence-based approaches
To be established across the curriculum Written and Oral Communication Analytical Reasoning Information Literacy Social and Self Awareness Reflective Practitioner Responsive Citizenship Graduates demonstrating prescribed clinical competencies outlined in the HFSON mission, goals and objectives CSUs Student Learning Outcomes and HFSON’s Terminal Objectives
Synthesize knowledge Apply leadership concepts, skills and decision making Demonstrates clinical judgment Demonstrate proficiency Collaborate to improve the delivery of health care. Demonstrate knowledge of health care policy and regulations. Integrates health promotion and disease prevention strategies Demonstrates professional, ethical and legal responsibility
Demonstrate synthesis of the nursing process
Synthesize critical thinking strategies and communications
HFSON PR/AWARD CONGRESSIONAL GRANT OBJECTIVE FOR SIMULATION Objective 3: Through the use of laboratory simulation technology, educate nurses who will maintain safe patient care and decrease the student faculty ratio from 10:1 to 20: 1.
Subobjective 2.1: Using Learning Modules give students meaningful learning
experiences with real time applications.
Subobjective 2.2: Students will perform in the lab where a regular hospital bed is
placed in a true room like area with bedside tables, telephone, wall "oxygen", air, and suction available.
Subobjective 2.3: Use of the Human Patient Simulator to create a realism
appearance. Have students talk to the simulator and not to the instructors and all responses coming via the simulator (via wireless communication to a speaker in the simulator).
Subobjective 2.4: Debriefmg activities to be at least 50% of laboratory time to
Allow students the opportunity to share experiences, evaluate their performance, and receive feedback from instructors. PRlAward #
Mission/Purpose Vision Values Goals Objectives Implementation: Strategies, Tasks, Methods Expected Results and Process Measures (Indicators) Outcomes, Outcome Indicators KEY COMPONENTS LEADING TO OUTCOMES
Vision To expand the role of professional nursing simulation teaching practices for health profession workforce development, clinical education and the integration of new simulation proof of concept research for quality and safety in care practices. Mission Dedicated to the authentic replication of clinical nursing experiences in a virtual hospital environment to advance the commitment for innovations to develop a simulation curriculum and lead simulation clinical experiences for the pre-licensure, experienced, and graduate practice competency-based nursing programs.

RESULT FROM STUDIES The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of two instructional methods to teach specific nursing education content. Results of this study suggest that use of a teaching strategy involving the HPS method made a positive difference in the nursing students' ability to answer questions on a test of cognitive skills. Use of a human patient simulator (HPS) as a tool for learning provides a mechanism by which students can participate in:
RESEARCH RESULTS The results of a mixed-methods study integrating the use of simulations in a nursing theory course in order to assess students' perceptions of self-efficacy for nursing practice are presented Nursing students were exposed to a combination of lecture and simulation This study provides data to suggest:
Students' self-confidence for nursing practice may be increased through the use of simulation as a method of teaching and learning.
Students also reported higher levels of satisfaction, effectiveness and consistency with their learning style when exposed to the combination of lecture, simulation and audio-visual technologies.
