Abstract

Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) faculty are challenged by the monumental responsibility of preparing students to function as safe, professional nurses in a two year course of study. Advances in computer technology and emphasis on integrating technology and active learning strategies into existing course structures have prompted many nurse educators to explore the use of Human Patient Simulation (HPS) utilizing high-fidelity human patient simulators. This pilot study was designed to assist ADN faculty to determine students' perceptions regarding the use of HPS scenarios as a teaching strategy to meet course objectives across multiple core ADN nursing courses in a single quarter. (Contains 2 tables.)
