Description

Simulation in Nursing Education – Mental Health Scenarios is a set of 10 scenarios designed for nursing students in pre-licensure nursing programs who are in a mental health course or are studying nursing care of patients with mental health conditions in other courses. The scenarios are also useful for teaching mental health in other contexts.

The scenarios are made for use with standardized patients and present patients in a wide range of health care settings. They allow students to practice a broad range of mental health nursing skills, and offer faculty the ability to provide realistic and challenging scenario-based simulations to help students build competence and confidence in caring for patients with mental health disorders.

The scenarios encourage the participants to assess and manage the patient, identify and prioritize patient problems, perform key interventions for safe and effective patient care, establish a therapeutic environment, and use therapeutic communication techniques appropriate for the patient.

For ease of use, and to help facilitate the integration of the scenarios into nursing programs, the scenarios include features such as:

• A list of the 2016 NCLEX-RN Test Plan Categories that are being addressed in the scenarios
• Pre-simulation requirements and recommended resources for students to review
• Introductions to the standardized patients and embedded standardized participants
• Guided reflection questions mapped to the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies
• Case considerations to guide faculty on the knowledge essentials during debriefing
• A health record with appropriate documentation and order forms to help enhance realism

Blended Learning with Scenarios and vSim® for Nursing

Simulation in Nursing Education – Mental Health Scenarios can be used alone or together with vSim® for Nursing Mental Health (purchased separately). Used together the products form a blended learning program that includes scenarios for standardized patients, virtual simulations, and online curriculum materials such as reading assignments, pre- and post-simulation quizzes, documentation assignments, and guided reflection questions.

The complete solution enables students to develop critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills in a step-by-step process in which they start out by building and testing their knowledge with reading assignments and pre-simulation quizzes. Next, they can train clinical knowledge and reasoning in virtual simulations, and later they can meet the same patients in simulations with standardized patients, which, in addition to clinical knowledge and clinical reasoning skills, also help to develop and strengthen competences in communication and teamwork. Finally, post-simulation quizzes, guided reflection questions, and documentation assignments complete the learning experience.
