Clinical Practice FAQs

American Association of Colleges of Nursing

The use of simulations in nursing, including interactive nursing simulations, has generated a great deal of discussion in the nursing community. Questions range from “how does the CCNE define clinical practice experiences“ to “Can simulation replace ‘traditional’ clinical practice experience? How much simulation is acceptable”?

As an organization committed to helping increase the quality of education and providing nurse educators with tools to help them better teach critical skills such as critical thinking, we encourage the discussion.
