Abstract

Meeting required objectives in the clinical setting can be difficult because of low exposure to critical events. This has been further compounded by an increase in the number of enrolling students without a reciprocal rise in the number of field-related clinical sites. As simulation gains popularity in nursing, exploration of its use and benefits to teach nursing-related concepts is desirable. The authors discuss a variety of teaching strategies ranging from the use of games to high-fidelity simulators that have been incorporated into an all-day clinical simulation campus laboratory.
