Abstract:
A Joint Adventure using Simulation in the Pediatric Nurse Residency Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

21st INRC [Evidence-Based Practice Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to further enhance our nurse residency program utilizing clinical simulation in partnership with a university simulation lab. Background: One goal of our Nurse Residency Program is to develop effective decision-making abilities related to clinical judgment and performance. To achieve this goal, simulation experiences have been incorporated at various times throughout the residency by partnering with a university simulation lab for a modest user fee and the hiring of a nurse faculty member for these specially-tailored experiences. Educational research identifies simulation as an educational technique that allows interactive and immersive activity by recreating all or part of a clinical experience without exposing patients to the associated risks. The purpose was to establish a collaborative relationship to examine the feasibility and effectiveness of using simulation in the program. Methods: Hospital nurse educators developed the simulation scenarios to reflect important experiences in the institution.ÿ Three cohorts of Nurse Residents participated from June 2008 through October 2009. In a cooperative agreement with the University, the residents were transported to the University for the preparatory lecture content and clinical simulation experiences. Data were collected after the program ended using self-administered surveys to the residents. Results: Outcomes: Residents' ratings of the simulation experience were very high.ÿ Comments included:ÿ "rather make the mistake here?" andÿ "helps our critical thinking skills in a 'real life' situation." Conclusion: As a result of this collaboration the next step has been the development of a Collaborative task force whose mandate is to develop scenarios using leveling for academic and practice areas with the support of unit educators, graduate residents and university faculty. Implications: Academic and professional institutions can effectively develop partnerships to promote continued learning experiences to support workforce development and enhance quality of care.
