Abstract:
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: 1) Integrate high fidelity simulation into educating nurses who care for acute or chronically ill patients experiencing psychological/psychiatric issues. 2) Evaluate the implementation of high fidelity simulation in educating nurses who care for acute or chronically ill patients experiencing psychological/psychiatric issues. SIGNIFICANCE: Using high-fidelity simulation models nursing students and practicing nurses can learn to deliver psychiatric/mental health nursing care to a variety of patients in a controlled environment. In this non-threatening environment, there is no risk to patients or students. BACKGROUND/RATIONALE: Teaching scenarios include: an elderly fall victim who must be assessed for alcohol use and abuse; a veteran with war injuries including a below the knee amputation, chronic pain, PTSD, and suicidal ideation; and many manifestations of anxiety disorders. The simulator is used to manipulate vital signs and other physiologic responses as students experience the consequences of their actions, or inactions, in a controlled setting. DESCRIPTION: Baccalaureate nursing students were divided into 2 groups of 4, each member taking a roll: primary nurse, recording nurse, medication nurse, or family member while the remaining 4 students did a peer review and later changed rolls for a different scenario. Self-evaluation tools aided students in evaluating their learning. Student de-briefing became the post-conference as students viewed the completed scenarios electronically with the guidance of their clinical faculty member and the Simulation Coordinator. OUTCOME: Quantitative and qualitative data was used to evaluate the specific learning outcomes from the simulation experience. Results are strongly positive and are being replicated. INTERPRETATION/CONCLUSION: This paper presentation describes the creation and evaluation of an educationally sound high fidelity simulation experiences for psychiatric nursing students and practicing nurses. IMPLICATIONS FOR CNS BASIC AND CONTINUING EDUCATION: High fidelity simulation can be used in a variety of setting to teach nurses to care for acute or chronically ill patients experiencing psychological/psychiatric issues.
