High volume nursing assessments with high-fidelity team simulation: A topic review

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    This presentation is a process evaluation during the delivery of a third year nursing topic to maximize its effectiveness. It was decided to incorporate simulation as a learning tool as extend its use to encompass assessments of students' learning objectives using simulation. Simulation has potential to increase competence and protect our nursing students by offering a safe and reflective learning space (Carson 2013).
    In 2016 the School of Nursing and Midwifery had in their undergraduate nursing programme 1074 1st year students, 996 2nd and 809 3rd year students. With this, the School performs as a high volume simulation centre requiring alternatives to individual assessments. Our topic runs during one semester for 3 availabilities of 6 week blocks, consisting of 7 classes up to 30 students, hence 6 groups of up to 5 students in each.
