Welcome to Simulation Simplified! This text has been designed for nurse educators/faculty in both academic or practice settings. The aim of this instructor manual is to "simplify" the process of teaching with simulation by providing many helpful tips, scenarios and templates that you will be able to use right away.
The lessons learned from this text and accompanying electronic resources will help take the mystery, the guess work and the difficulty out of the components of implementing simulation. You will learn how to create realism in your scenario, how to effectively design and unfold a simulation scenario. In addition, you will learn how to facilitate high quality debriefing/reflective thinking sessions after the simulation has been implemented.
In the final chapter you will gain insight into international perspectives on simulation and future directions. Simulation Simplified is comprised of three components: an instructor manual, a student workbook and electronic resources for both the nursing faculty and the students.
