Integration of simulation into nursing education is paramount.  Today?s nurses and nursing students are faced with rapidly changing technology, high patient acuities, and management of complex diseases and illnesses. In addition, faster patient turnover with decreased length of stay and increasing complexity mean there is little time to review and update skills.  Increasingly, nursing students are not assisted in their transition to practitioner role because staff cannot manage the acuity of patients and meet the demands of providing introductory mentoring. The use of simulation is not new. Simulators have been used in aviation, military flight operations and other industries. Recently the use of simulation in medicine has increased, in part due to greater awareness of the importance of patient safety. Simulation has also been used in nursing education to allow students to assess changeable heart sounds, breath sounds, and chest movement; experience cardiac monitoring; administer simulated medications; and observe the physiologic effects. Currently, the Faculty of Nursing, is involved in a process that will completely integrate simulation into the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs.  While there is benefit to practice skills on the mannequins, participating in critical thinking scenario exercises will have long term benefits for students.  Through this approach we hope to enhance the student experience, develop a high level of self confidence and provide employers with better prepared nurses. This initiative addresses nursing retention; the changing demands of the clinical settings and the changing needs of our students.  Using first and second year student?s focus group interviews and online semi structured interviews on the impact of simulation on nursing education.  Final data collection will be available for presentation. The use of simulations is not in itself innovative in health education.  But, integration of simulation into curriculum rather using simulation exercises to support curriculum is new to nursing education.
