Computerized patient simulation is an exciting and innovative pedagogical method that allows nurse educators to prepare student nurses for the challenges of clinical practice. This book serves as a step-by-step guide to designing and developing simulated scenarios, and integrating them into nursing curriculums. The authors provide concrete information about the use of simulation in a variety of programs, courses, and schools with flexible simulator uses, including live actors and static mannequins.
This book also provides options for building a learning resource center, and offers guidance on faculty development. Additionally, the contributors present 17 exemplars of actual scenarios in multiple clinical areas, as well as testimonies of practicing faculty.Key Features:
