Abstract:
PURPOSE: Innovative continuing education programs are a means to enhance the self-confidence of the novice nurse entering the realm of critical care. The "Preparing the Critical Care Nurse" program was developed for novice critical care nurses. This course was designed to foster collaboration between area hospitals and a large baccalaureate nursing program by facilitating the transition of undergraduate nurses as well as seasoned nurses to the critical care setting using high-fidelity simulation. Description: After discovering a community-wide need for critical care continuing education, the "Preparing the Critical Care Nurse" provided the opportunity to incorporate high-fidelity simulation as a key component in developing the skills needed to enter the realm of critical care nursing. The course was designed to accommodate the learning needs of the novice nurse or the seasoned nurse new to critical care, foster the development of critical thinking skills in a stimulating learning environment, and prepare the participant to assume the role of the nurse in an adult critical care setting. The week-long course consisted of interactive lectures using the body-system approach. A state-of-the-art critical care simulation lab provided the venue in which the nurse participants transferred the knowledge obtained in the didactic portion of the course to application in a simulated intensive care unit. Participants participated in realistic, interactive critical care scenarios that exposed the participants to authentic situations and/or critical events that occur in the critical care setting. Short discussions following each scenario allowed for a period of debriefing to discuss critical aspects imperative to successful outcomes. EVALUATION: Goals of the simulation component of the course were evaluated by adapting the National League for Nursing's Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning instrument. The evaluation tool entitled Nurse Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning addressed the participant's satisfaction with learning through simulation and how self-confidence was enhanced. Applying critical care concepts using high-fidelity simulation proved to be successful through participant reports that self-confidence and satisfaction in learning were enhanced. A participant survey administered six months post the program offered a means for participants to provide their impressions of simulation as a learning tool.
