Validating the Use of High-Fidelity Simulation as a Clinical Adjunct in Undergraduate Nursing Education

According to theAmericanAssociation of Colleges ofNursing (AACN)the entry level enrollment for Baccalaureate nursing programs has risen 82.7% since 2002. The increased enrollment has translated into a need for clinical sites and experiences required to develop skilled, knowledgeable nurses. Nursing schools are looking at advancesin technology to help maintain a high standard of education and provide needed clinical opportunities. Current research suggests that the use of high-fidelity simulation is an effective method of preparing nursing students to care for patients. Students can develop teaching, technical, and critical thinking skills during the high-fidelity simulations that can be readily transferred to living patients in a standard care situation. This project investigated the premise that simulation experiences are comparable in effectiveness to hospital clinicals by comparing pretest/posttest scores and semester examsscores after a four week clinicalrotation. Statisticalresultsshowed no difference in scores between the test and control groups, thus supporting the literature review and the null hypothesis.
