Abstract:
Including simulation technology in the orientation of nurses is a new strategy for hospital educators. Simulation experiences occur on a continuum of low-fidelity (task trainers) to high fidelity (computer based manikins) that offer the learner a near to real life experience in a safe environment. Educators nursing have developed sophisticated scenarios for high fidelity simulators to teach students how to skillfully perform multiple tasks, prioritize care, critically think, and make sound decisions. The use of this technology engages the student in interactive learning that promotes internalization of skills and the building of confidence. Transferring this strategy to the orientation of new employees was the goal of a large teaching hospital. Nursing orientation was redesigned to include two days in the hospitals new simulation center. New employees are given a case scenario and are expected to provide or coordinate patient care across the spectrum of a hospital stay, such as: assessment; transfer to the OR; wound care; IV start; central line dressing care; declining condition; and a code. Placing the new employee in a simulated real life situation allows them to identify their own learning needs and to connect with others to share learning moments. Educators are able to validate competency by observing care, personal interactions, and direct demonstration of skills. This innovative simulation technology offers the hospital educator a rich environment for interactive orientation and skills validation. Examples of learning opportunities, outcomes of case scenarios, and satisfaction with orientation by new employees and preceptors will be shared and discussed.
