Working Towards Introducing Simulations
1. As you are working towards introducing simulations into your desired change environment, what aspects of bringing simulation to participants who may have not had these experiences before? Additionally, what steps or actions will you take to support the education and training the nursing students will need to meet expectations of performance in the simulation lab? Are you using an established simulation lab and is there a sim lab coordinator that will be supporting your needs?
2. I may have asked you a similar question in the other course discussion, but what learning curve is there for nursing students for how to manage, participate, and cope with utilizing the simulation lab. This is a very different type of environment and I have seen some students very uncomfortable with this type of process. It takes some getting used to, and can be an added stress to interactive learning. Thoughts?
