The effect of high-fidelity simulation on examination performance
Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 6, Number 2 ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
High-fidelity simulation (HFS) has become an important and widely used component in undergraduate nursing education. Nursing programs are budgeting large amounts of capital resources to incorporate HFS into learning strategies. However, it is important to ask to what degree is HFS facilitating the achievement of learning outcomes in comparison with traditional clinical teaching methods. This article reports findings of a study that examined the differences between traditional clinical laboratory experiences and high-fidelity clinical simulation experiences as teaching methods for the development of critical care nursing skills and concepts in undergraduate nursing students.
