Evaluating Outcomes of High Fidelity Simulation Curriculum in a Community College Nursing Program
by Denlea, Gregory Richard, Ed.D., Wingate University, 2017, 141; 10267212
Abstract (Summary)

This study took place at a Wake Technical Community College, a multi-campus institution in Raleigh, North Carolina. An evaluation of the return on investment in high fidelity simulation used by an associate degree of nursing program was conducted with valid and reliable instruments. The study demonstrated that comparable student outcomes are attainable when traditional clinical study is replaced with high fidelity simulation curriculum. Limited clinical practice space justifies the spread of simulation in college health science programs. North Carolina Administrative Code permits community colleges to replace 25% of traditional clinical with simulation. The lack of research on the cost effectiveness of high fidelity simulation has been cited as a barrier to its diffusion. Sound research demonstrating performance-based and patient-centric outcomes can provide governing bodies with evidence supporting the diffusion of high fidelity education.
