Abstract:

The nursing program at a community college in Texas had a steady decrease in National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) and Health Education Systems, Incorporated (HESI) scores for the past five years. After making several changes in the program, HESI scores continued to be low. In 2012, the school built a new state of the art high fidelity simulation lab. The faculty considered high fidelity simulation (HFS) as a possible solution to improve the scores. The purpose of this project was to examine whether the integration of HFS with traditional clinical learning experiences would increase the students’ performance on the HESI, therefore, this project was undertaken to compare the HESI scores of two groups of nursing students: the combination group and the traditional group. The combination group comprised of students who participated in 50% HFS and 50% traditional clinical experience and completed their HESI exam in 2014. The second group, the traditional group, comprised of students who only participated in traditional clinical learning experiences and completed their HESI exam in 2012. Their clinical experience was 100% at the bedside in the hospital setting. HESI scores from the combination group had an increase in score by 57.97 points; the traditional group had a decrease of 18.69 points in their HESI exit exam. The project outcome showed effectiveness of HFS and offers a basis for continuing this intervention for further assessment in the nursing program in the future.
