Nursing students in Gwinnett Hospital System’s summer Nurse Extern Program participated in an innovative initiative that promoted critical thinking, prioritization, and teamwork. A collegial partnership between the Gwinnett Hospital System Learning Resources Department and the Georgia Perimeter College Department of Nursing used simulation as a patient care teaching methodology. Simulation may be one methodology that hospital–college partnerships can pursue in developing and achieving nursing excellence in future nurses.
