Students leading in simulation technology: what are the benefits?
 Human simulation in technology as a learning tool is becoming more evident in nursing curricula.  One barrier to its continued growth and integration into the curricula surrounds the level of technical difficulty perceived by faculty who would use the human simulators to teach students. One university in the Midwest explored the concept of incorporating students in the development of a new simulation program.  The concept of the Millenial Learner was the inspiration guiding the initiative to incorporate the use of students in this new simulation program.
  The benefits relative to incorporating students in this program development were realized when the students organized the new Learning Center, refurbished the simulators and rendered the human simulators operable.  The students programmed the human simulators and assisted with the writing of scenario programs used to teach fellow classmates valuable nursing concepts through programmed simulation.
 The students who were the recipients of the learning experience delivered by the students who operated the simulators were surveyed at the end of their experience.  Some of their comments included, “It was an excellent learning experience; I felt it was real and the students teaching us were very helpful”, and “I loved the hands on! The students were very knowledgeable”.  The students who operated the simulators commented, “It felt good to share my knowledge in a teaching experience.”
