To prepare associate degree nursing students for the increasing demands of professional practice, we designed an integrated simulation to allow the students to assess their perceived readiness to assume the role of the registered nurse in today's ever-changing health care system. The simulation integrated 2 levels of medical–surgical students caring for a complex patient. This collaboration facilitated the upper-level students' evaluation of their confidence in critical situational analysis, prioritization, delegation, and professionalism.
