This case presents the adolescent patient Skyler Hansen with recently diagnosed type 1 diabetes who presents to the Emergency Department with hypoglycemia. The students are expected to recognize symptoms of hypoglycemia and treat it appropriately. The students are also expected to maintain confidential patient information.

This scenario is programmed to encourage students to assess and manage the patient, identify and prioritize patient problems, and perform key interventions for safe and effective patient care.

The scenario is designed for nursing students in all types of pre-licensure nursing programs. In addition, the scenario is also useful for other learners and contexts, such as new graduate orientation programs.
