The Simulation in Nursing Education volume II patient cases are designed to encourage students to assess and manage patients by identifying key indicators and performing critical interventions.
The Simulation in Nursing Education Volume II package contains twenty (20) patient cases, both medical and surgical, that address major learning objectives applicable to all types of undergraduate nursing programs.
The patient cases, mapped to the 2013 NCLEX-RN® Test Plan Categories, are designed to provide fidelity within the simulation, determine the appropriate level of complexity, embed cues and provide adequate debriefing opportunities using the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies.
Ten (10) core patient cases deal with patient assessment, skin care, pain management and safe patient handling.
Ten (10) complex patient cases expand upon the core cases, using the same patient history, but require early identification of potential complications, prioritization, delegation and communication to provide safe and effective patient care.
