Abstract

Background: Although the use of simulation in schools of nursing is becoming common, its use in clinical practice is still emerging. This project explored how students could contribute to the clinical unit by supporting learning among experienced registered nurses who are new to simulation. Methods: This quasi-experimental pilot study used a convenience sample of all perinatal nurses who participated in a neonatal resuscitation program renewal course in the fall quarter at a Midwestern U.S. hospital (N = 88). Satisfaction and confidence in learning were compared between groups of nurses who watched a simulation DVD with either instructors or students as team members before participating in a neonatal resuscitation scenario. Results: The participants viewed the simulation as a positive experience. There was no significant difference in satisfaction or confidence with the simulation between the two groups. Conclusion: There may be opportunities for student nurses to make positive contributions to staff education on clinical units through simulation.
