Presentation Transcript

Case scenario simulation in nursing education

Presented by: Katy Gordon RN, MSN(c)

Scholarly Project

Ferris State University


  • Describe goals and objectives of scholarly project

  • Describe how scholarly project supported by evidence-based practice and literature

  • Describe graduate student personal and professional accountability


  • Describe analysis of outcomes supported by literature

  • Describe adherence to legal , ethical, nursing, and organizational standards

  • Describe recommendations for future use of case scenario simulation

Simulation in nursing education and Evidence-Based Practice

  • Application and integration of skills, knowledge and critical thinking

  • Facilitates development of student competence and confidence

  • Involves experiential learning, adult learning, constructive learning, and reflective learning theories

    Fanning & Gaba, 2007; Grossman, Krom, & O’Connor, 2010; Jeffries, 2007; and Shinnick, Woo, & Mentes, 2011

Planning phase of Scholarly project

Goals and Objectives of scholarly project

  • Design of case scenario simulation

  • Implementation of case scenario simulation

  • Evaluation of case scenario simulation

Design Phase of case scenario simulation

Jeffries, 2007

Outcomes and objectives

  • Simulation outcomes and objectives were correlated with course and curriculum outcomes and objectives for cardiac patient

  • Outcome: Student(s) will care for a complex cardiac patient within the scope of nursing practice

  • Objectives: outlined in simulation design

Design Characteristics

  • Objectives

  • Fidelity

  • Problem Solving

  • Student Support

  • Debriefing

Implementation Phase of case scenario simulation

  • Pretest and Post-test

  • Debriefing

  • Student feedback and evaluation

Evaluation phase of case scenario simulation

Accountability = success of scholarly project

Personal accountability

Professional accountability

  • Journaling

  • Time log

  • Adhered to proposed plans for scholarly project

  • Communication

  • Mentoring

  • Change agent

National League for Nursing, 2012

Analysis of Outcomes

  • Design of Simulation Phase

  • Implementation Phase

  • Evaluation phase

Jeffries, 2007

Adherence to legal, Ethical, Nursing, and Organizational standards

  • Legal standards

  • Ethical standards

  • Nursing standards

  • Organizational standards

Legal and Ethical Standards

Jeffries, 2007; IOM 2010; and The Joint Commission, 2013

Nursing and organizational standards

American Nurses Association, 2010; Faragher, Boese, Decker, & Sando, 2011; and National League for Nursing, 2013

Evaluation of Project with recommendations

  • Repeat of scenario

  • Video recording of scenario for self-evaluation

  • Use four-step process of simulation before implementing scenario in simulation lab
