Advanced practice nursing students: Pilot test of a simulation scenario

Benita Walton-Moss, Sharon O'Neill, Wendy Holland, Robin Hull, Lea Marineau

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the current educational environment, increasing numbers of advanced practice nursing (APN) students compete for decreasing numbers of clinical sites where patient safety is paramount. Clinical simulations with high-fidelity human patient simulators provide APN students opportunities to demonstrate clinical skills and judgment in a safe supportive environment. Development, implementation, and preliminary evaluation of a scenario for APN students are discussed. Faculty and student evaluations are reviewed as well as recommendations for future simulations.
