Supporting the development of entry-to-practice competencies, critical thinking and clinical reasoning in pre-licensure nursing students is imperative when preparing graduates for the realities of current practice. Simulation has long been used in health care education and advances in technology and research have enhanced this teaching practice. Today, simulation may be in-person or virtual and uses a wide-variety of methods and tools. Educators can tailor the situations to the needs of the learners, ensuring that they experience a range of complex health care situations.
This talk will highlight how simulation is being integrated across the undergraduate nursing program at the Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. Various modalities and techniques will be discussed.
