Abstract:
A project was developed to provide simulated nursing practice lab scenarios in obstetrical and surgical clinical experiences using human patient simulators for nursing students enrolled in a distance education program. Students in these isolated communities encounter fewer clinical opportunities on Maternal/Infant and Surgical nursing units. In addition, availability of resources varies from site to site. Confederation College students from the Northwestern Ontario campuses of Fort Francis, Dryden, Kenora, and Sioux Lookout campuses met at the Dryden site for this project. The purpose of this study was twofold: first to bring the distance education students together for a learning opportunity that they may not otherwise experience; and secondly to provide that quality learning experience using human patient simulators in clinical scenarios. A pre test/post test experimental design was used to compare knowledge acquisition. Following the simulation lab experience, participants completed an evaluative survey consisting of Likert scale and open-ended questions which allowed for subjective responses. Findings revealed that participation in the workshop resulted in increased knowledge, student satisfaction and a sense of connectedness among students from the various distance education campuses. The project proved to be an effective strategy for teaching in distance nursing programs.
