Additional Information

Description

The Simulation in Nursing Education – Medical-Surgical Scenarios is a set of 20 scenarios that are built on the original Simulation in Nursing Education scenarios. The scenarios are designed for nursing students in all types of pre-licensure nursing programs. In addition, the scenarios are also useful for other learners and contexts, such as new graduate orientation programs.

The scenario set consists of 10 medical and 10 surgical scenarios. Of these, ten scenarios reflect learning in basic assessments, safety and infection control, prevention of complications, and communication skills. The other 10 expand upon the basic scenarios using the same patient history, but require recognition and management of complications, advanced team collaboration, and communication.

Allowing for training in a wide range of health care settings, the scenarios help improve students’ competence and confidence to provide care for patients with varied clinical conditions. Students will be challenged to assess and monitor patient conditions over time and to respond with the appropriate treatment.

For ease of use and to help facilitate the integration of the scenarios into nursing programs, the scenario set includes expanded faculty features and practice updates like:

• A list of the 2016 NCLEX-RN Test Plan Categories that are being addressed in the scenario
• A list of the nursing diagnoses that students should be able to identify 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 (if a support person is designated in the simulation)
• An enhanced debriefing guide with guided reflection questions mapped to the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies
• A patient chart with appropriate documentation and order forms to help enhance realism
• Latest drugs and interventions to meet newest standards of care
• Most current best practice references and resources

The scenarios allow students to practice a broad range of nursing skills using advanced Laerdal simulators. The simulation training will help to improve the transition from education to practice by preparing the students for the challenges in nursing care.

Blended Learning with Scenarios and vSim® for Nursing
The scenarios can be used alone or together with vSim® for Nursing Medical-Surgical (purchased separately). Used together the products form a blended learning program that includes scenarios for human patient simulators, virtual simulations and online curriculum materials such as reading assignments, pre- and post-simulation quizzes, documentation assignments, and guided reflection questions.

When using the complete solution, the program enables students to develop critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills by a step-by-step process in which they start out by building and testing their knowledge with reading assignments and pre-simulation quizzes. Advancing to next step, the students can use virtual simulations to train their ability to integrate knowledge about the various topics that are needed when caring for a patient.

Later, they can meet the same patient in a simulation with a human patient simulator, which will include the complexity of having to perform procedures and communicate with patient, family, and health care team members. Experiencing the same patient encounter through different technologies will help to reinforce theoretical knowledge and gradually build confidence and competence.

From this set, 10 of the scenarios can be found in vSim® for Nursing Medical-Surgical. For additional information about vSim®, click here.
