Description

Nursing students’ clinical experiences are augmented with high fidelity simulation using standardized patients and SimMan mannequins. Simulation experiences provide an opportunity to explore clinical cases in a controlled setting combined with structured debriefing facilitated by course faculty. Included in the simulated experiences is a focus on an aspect of diversity and culture, as well as students’ cultural competence and confidence in interacting with diverse patient groups.
