Reinforcing Medication Administration Through Student-Directed Simulation
Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 12, Number 4, ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Medication errors are a threat to patient safety, and the distress experienced by nurses affects their confidence and practice. Nursing students have reported a decrease in medication administration in the clinical setting. This article documents the creation of a pilot study to explore the potential for a teaching approach that utilizes senior students as mentors in a simulation laboratory to practice medication administration. Results revealed that all students reported an increased competence and confidence to administer medication autonomously in the future.
