Simulation represents an increasingly effective strategy for addressing the growing lack of clinical placements for today’s nursing students, offering evidence-based, experiential learning opportunities that foster critical thinking and clinical reasoning. Simulation in Nursing Education: From Conceptualization to Evaluation, Third Editionprovides both a foundation for the novice and advanced strategies for the seasoned simulation educator, empowering nursing educators to make informed decisions and ensure success in their simulation programs.
Structured around the NLN Jeffries Theory (2015), this updated edition highlights current best practices in simulation design and development, teaching and learning practices, implementation processes and associated learning outcomes. Seven new chapters reflect recent advances and emerging concepts across the full spectrum of simulation strategies, including pre-briefing of simulations, creating simulation cases for Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCES) for graduate nursing programs and the use of virtual simulations and gaming to engage students.
