Driven by continuing changes in the healthcare field, nurse educators must find alternative ways to teach future nurses. Increasing numbers of nursing programs are acquiring high-fidelity patient simulators that will serve as an adjunct to didactic learning. These simulators provide the closest possible technology to real patients and allow repetitive ldquo;hands-onrdquo; learning in a safe environment. The simulators allow nursing students gain both experience and confidence to make critical clinical decisions in acute care situations.High Fidelity Patient Simulation in Nursing Education provides a necessary primer for nursing programs starting out in this technology. It includes examples for setting up a simulator program for nurses, developing and implementing this technology into particular clinical and laboratory courses, and setting up refresher courses in hospital settings. Topics include the history of simulation, evidence-based research on high fidelity simulation, setting up a simulation program, the future of high-fidelity patient simulation in nursing, and more.
