Abstract:
Simulation Proves Stimulating! An internship program with multi-generational nurses having different learning styles can be challenging. Make that three internship programs (critical care, emergency nurse and progressive care) running simultaneously, and sharing parts of the same program. How effective is it for each group? For each individual? How stimulating? Do learning and critical thinking occur? How can we know? We incorporated testing pre and post internship using three versions of BKAT (Basic Knowledge Assessment Test): critical care, emergency and telemetry. We added the use of a human simulator into lab scenarios intergrated into the American Association of Critical Care Nurses on-line critical care orientation program (ECCO). At the end of the internship all BKAT scores had improved from 5-27 points! Interns credited the addition of simulation as responsible for their increased knowledge and confidence. The educators noted a progressive increase in critical thinking. Conclusion: Simulation had a very positive impact on the participants and will continue to be an integral part of these internship programs. Data collection will be on-going. and the study will be on-going.
