Additional Information

Description

This pediatric scenario addresses learning objectives applicable to all types of undergraduate nursing programs. The scenario is designed to promote development of patient assessment skills, identification of nursing diagnosis, management of care, and implementation of appropriate interventions.

The scenario presents Michael Smith, a 6-year-old Caucasian male who has been brought to the Emergency Department by his mother after a recent fall from his bike while not wearing a helmet. Immediately after the event he was “out of it” for a short period of time. Chief complaint now is headache and dizziness. The students are expected to obtain the history and perform a head-to-toe examination that includes a focused neurological examination, concentrating on identifying both the cause and progression of the altered level of consciousness. Information about the onset of the neurological symptoms, including time of day, location, and duration of initial symptoms is important for the students to ascertain. Following the examination, the students should educate the family about bicycle safety and provide information about symptoms to watch for after a head injury.

For ease of use and to support the integration of the scenarios into curricula, the following features are included in the scenario:

• A list of the 2016 NCLEX-RN Test Plan Categories that are being addressed in the scenario
• A list of the nursing diagnoses that the students should be able to identify during simulation
• Guided reflection questions mapped to the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies for use during the debriefing
• Appropriate documentation and order forms to help enhance realism

The scenario is developed for use with the Laerdal SimJunior Advanced pediatric simulator. Together, this scenario and the SimJunior simulator offer faculty the ability to provide realistic and challenging scenario based simulation to help students apply the nursing process. The scenario is also available as part of the set “Simulation in Nursing Education – Pediatric Scenarios”.
