Nursing students must be able to competently perform nursing skills, critically think through their assessments to deliver appropriate interventions, and evaluate their actions for adequate follow-up care. One means by which the student can practice their knowledge and skills in a safe environment is through the use of a human patient simulator in a psychomotor laboratory. These state-of-the-art fully-computerized mannequins can closely imitate the human body in their response to medications and to physiological insults. In this study, a survey was sent to nursing programs across the country using the human patient simulator to ascertain how this technology is being used in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. Information will be obtained on program demographics, curricular time used with the aid of the human patient simulator, number of faculty involved with this technology, courses implementing this technology, development of scenarios, competency testing, research, and evaluation methods. Results of the national survey will be illustrated and will be analyzed by program type (i.e., associate degree, baccalaureate, graduate) as applicable. Recommendations for further use of the human patient simulator in nursing education will be listed.
