Performing in the fishbowl: strategies to empower students in the simulated clinical setting
human patient simulation (HPS), nursing education, post secondary education
On a global level, many undergraduate nursing education programs have adopted high-fidelity human patient simulation (HPS) to enhance knowledge integration and clinical skills acquisition. Although the literature indicates that HPS has the potential to meet the modern students’ preference for immersive social construction of knowledge, many students face stress and anxiety when performing for others in the “fishbowl” of the traditional HPS-based clinical laboratory. The purpose of this presentation is to build upon the mid-range theory that evolved from the social-psychological processes occurring within HPS-based clinical scenarios and provide the audience with strategies to maximize the modern nursing student's knowledge acquisition when engaging with this technology-based teaching/learning modality.
Presented on March 30, 2015 at the 5th International Nursing and Midwifery Conference held in Galway, Ireland.
