Simulation in some form has been used as a teaching strategy in nursing education since the first nurse tried to teach the first nursing student how to do a task properly. As our understanding of teaching and learning progresses so do the simulations that we use. The second edition of Simulation in Nursing Education: From Conceptualization to Evaluation, written by nurse educators and other health care professionals from a variety of allied health programs, refines and highlights the evidence-based practices in simulation that have emerged over the past six years. This book is intended as a resource for faculty as they harness and shape the learning environments of tomorrow to create meaningful, realistic, and evidence-based simulation experiences for their students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Viki Hedderick, DEd, MSN, BSN (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania)
Description: This book discusses the role of simulation in nursing education and provides easy-to-follow, practical advice supported by research. This second edition expands the discussion of debriefing and adds patient safety competencies, which are paramount to practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to assist educators in creating simulation to include in the curriculum to enhance student knowledge. The easy, step-by-step approach is helpful to all faculty, whether their experience with simulation is limited or extensive.
Audience: The intended audience is nurse educators. The rich, research-focused information is also helpful to deans and administrators who sometimes need data to validate the financial outlay and ongoing expenses associated with simulation.
Features: Although this is a stellar user's guide to nursing simulation, the best feature is the addition of the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies to the simulation. This content is required for practice and is certainly a focus of NCLEX. A section on QSEN has saved countless hours of work for simulation coordinators, as much of the integration work has been done.
Assessment: There are many books on the shelves that address simulation. However, this one stands out with its easily adaptable examples and the QSEN competency integration. This second edition is certainly valuable.
