Overview

Computerized patient simulation is an exciting and innovative pedagogical method that allows overburdened faculty members to prepare student nurses for clinical practice prior to working with patients.

Technology, however, must combine available technical capacities and pedagogical expertise. This book provides a step-by-step process by which to develop, incorporate, and integrate simulated scenarios into the nursing curriculum, while enabling faculty to shape content or create new content for specific needs.

Key Features:


  • A "how-to" for implementing the simulation environment
  • Provides the conceptual and theoretical foundations of simulation in nursing education
  • Includes CD-ROM with faculty instructions for preparation (suggested assignments, skills to review, websites to examine, etc.)
