The Role of Simulation in Nursing Education, a white paper published by American Sentinel University, delves into the rise of the use of simulation in pre-licensure nursing education as opposed to traditional clinical experiences. This white paper also discusses:
- The perspectives of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education on patient care experiences with actual patients and simulated experiences.
- How simulations compare with practice experiences and direct/indirect care activities.
- The appropriate amount of simulation in a nursing program.
- Research results for the effectiveness of Sentinel City®, a population health simulation created by American Sentinel University.
