Abstract (Summary)

The incorporation of high fidelity simulation (HFS) as an active learning exercise assists nursing faculty in appealing to various learning styles. High fidelity simulation helps bridge theory into practice (Billings & Halstead, 2009). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of HFS on students’ self-confidence, satisfaction, and collaboration skills among traditional and non-traditional associate degree nursing (ADN) students. The National League for Nursing Jeffries Simulation Framework (NLNJSF) served as the theoretical framework for this study. A pretest-posttest design was employed with 81 ADN students. Each nursing student completed the Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning and Readiness for Interprofessional Learning Scale. Data were collected prior to the start of HFS and after participating in three HFS scenarios at the end of a semester. A two week time frame existed between each of the HFS scenarios. Demographic data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. MANOVA and independent samples t-tests were used to determine within group differences and between group differences and changes in variables over time, alpha = .05. Statistically significant differences existed among student satisfaction and self-confidence levels from pre-simulation to post-simulation. Collaboration levels increased slightly from pre-simulation to post-simulation; however, they were not statistically significant. The interactive nature of HFS motivated students to learn and actively participate in scenarios thereby increasing student self-confidence, satisfaction, and collaboration.
