This scenario presents an 18-year-old female who had an emergency appendectomy two days ago. She is scheduled for discharge today. The students are expected to complete a focused pain assessment, and decide upon appropriate pain medication in collaboration with the patient, as well as providing discharge education regarding medication, signs of infection and activity restraints.

The scenario addresses learning objectives that focus on fundamental nursing care concepts and encourage the participants to assess and manage the patient, identify and prioritize basic patient problems, and perform key interventions for safe and effective patient care.

- A list of the 2016 NCLEX-RN Test Plan Categories that are being addressed in the  scenario
- Pre-simulation requirements and recommended resources for students to review 
- A role information sheet for the student playing the role of the support person    
- Guided reflection questions mapped to the Quality and Safety Education for  Nurses (QSEN) competencies 
- Case considerations to guide faculty on the knowledge essentials for the simulation scenario to enhance debriefing and student learning
- A patient chart with appropriate documentation and order forms to help enhance  realism
