SIMULATION SCENARIOS FOR NURSING EDUCATION, 1E is a unique and innovative resource for incorporating simulation scenarios into both an LPN/LVN and RN nursing curriculum. This book contains ten pre-written scenarios for use with any simulation device in any simulation lab. The student work text provides all necessary information needed by students for simulation preparation and completion, as well as a case study to encourage critical thinking. Each dynamic scenario provides goals/objectives, patient data, instruction on simulation preparation, a list of patient medications and the simulation scenario with student simulation roles and a grading rubric. The fully loaded INSTRUCTOR'S RESOURCE TO ACCOMPANY SIMULATION SCENARIOS FOR NURSING EDUCATION, 1E starts with a comprehensive first chapter outlining the benefits of simulation, in addition to detailed information on how to assemble a simulation environment, needed supplies for lab development and information on how to conduct a simulation exercise. For each scenario a grading grid is provided (also included on the accompanying CD-ROM for download), along with patient ID band, medication labels, grading information, and everything needed to evaluate student performance during the simulation. Added features include a basic simulation lab supply list, a human patient simulator confidentiality agreement and sample nurses notes/physician order sheets. Each scenario is presented separately for the LPN/LVN student and the RN student, with accompanying instructor resources.
