[Clinical session research presentation] Purpose: Demonstrate and describe the cognitive gains, competency, and student satisfaction among  students using a virtual IV simulator in concurrence with the traditional teaching method. This study will explore the effectiveness of a specific simulator, Virtual Intravenous Simulator by describing its overall impact on IV competency and student self - confidence with a cohort of nursing. Background: Nursing students face prioritizing clinical interventions. Simulation training is an opportunity to learn in a safe environment; free from fear of harming the patient in a controlled, predictable clinical event. Utilizing simulation methodology, patient safety and sound clinical decision making are promoted as clinical competency. Coupled with the decrease in accessible clinical sites for exposure to IV starts the simulator becomes a smart alternative. The virtual IV simulator contains information vital to the student's successful performance for the venous cannulation. Educational Intervention: Five survey tools will be completed to measure outcomes: 1) 25 question cognitive pre/ post - tests on basic IV insertion, 2) two page demographic questionnaire, 3) IRB approved student satisfaction questionnaire, 4) Virtual IV Skill Validation (formatted in the VIV program) and (5) student satisfaction questionnaire. Methodology: From 40 nursing students, 22 were randomly chosen for two groups of 14 each and given the pre-test and demographic questionnaire. Group A completed individually a session on the Virtual IV using the same scenario and allowed 4 attempts or one successful completion of IV insertion. All scores from the Virtual IV were recorded by the researcher. This included the tourniquet and procedure time and success rate. Once all in Group A have completed the Virtual IV phase, group of 22 will repeat live stick. This live stick will be monitored by the researchers using the Virtual IV protocols. The cognitive post - test and student satisfaction questionnaire will be completed. Results/Conclusions: All data will be collected by December, 2006. Our goal is that the data analysis validates our purpose by illustrating an increase of cognitive IV knowledge, enhanced IV skill acquisition and a high level of student satisfaction by comparing the pre-test and post-test scores, student satisfaction surveys and simulation data.
