Clinical Simulations for Nursing Education: Facilitator Volume, 2e, Spiral bound Book

Clinical Simulations for Nursing Education: Facilitator Volume, 2e Spiral bound


51 structured case studies simulate the wide range of patient care challenges students will encounter in practice.

These scenarios help them develop the critical assessment, clinical reasoning, and nursing skills they need to deliver safe and competent care in a controlled, risk-free environment. Each realistic, patient-care simulation focuses on a defined clinical domain, critical knowledge and skills, levels of competency, evidenced-based practice guidelines, National Patient Safety Goals, and research-based design characteristics.

They record their reflections at the end of each simulation to enhance self-awareness and develop insights into the patient care delivery process. This Facilitator Volume provides all of the information found in the Participant Volume, the answers to the student exercises and two additional testing simulations, as well as everything needed to set up, administer and facilitate each simulation. Encompasses the full spectrum of clinical nursing practice domains, patient age levels, and cultural backgrounds at every level of health care - primary, acute, long-term, and palliative care. Examines important topics in adult, pediatric, maternity, geriatric, emergency mental-health, and community nursing as well as nursing assessment and nursing fundamentals. Defines the knowledge and guidelines students need to master before participating in the simulation. Bases scenarios on real-life patient care situations with decision points prompting students for an assessment, a response, and an action. Organizes simulations in a consistent format that includes level; roles; learning outcomes; overview of the problem; simulation; student simulation prep assignments; simulator settings; simulation scenario. Evaluates student readiness and preparedness with focused review questions (with answers). Provides documentation assignment forms, self-evaluation forms, clinical pauses, guided reflection questions, and references and resources for all cases. Supports evidence-based practice with recognized clinical practice guidelines.
