[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Background: Since the 1980's with advancements in computer, video and digital technologies, many individuals have come to be identified as ôdigital nativesö because of their ability to be comfortable with advances in technology. In contrast, ôdigital immigrantsö have a different perspective and comfort level and do not foster computer/digital fluency and information as readily. Currently across the country, simulation technology in nursing is growing in popularity and demand. This cutting edge technology which uses Human Patient Simulator (HPS) challenges the adaptability of students to respond to change when acting out scenarios using HPS. Purpose and Methodology: The purposes of this study are a) to better understand students' perceptions and responses to experiences in clinical simulation, b) to identify the facilitators and barriers of students' learning in simulation. A cross sectional qualitative study will be conducted using 30 nursing students in a California state university who are at multiple levels in the nursing program. These students, both digital natives and immigrants will be exposed to scenarios using simulation for the first time. Data will be collected through a semi-structured interview guide. Results of the pilot study Intimidation and avoidance are major responses from the subjects. Getting information and seeking help from both the instructors and peers are major coping strategies. Implications The results of this study could be used as a guideline in facilitating student's adaptability and self confidence in clinical settings after using HPS. Benefits may include increase in critical reasoning and problem solving skills.
