Mock hospital ethics committee: An innovative simulation to teach prelicensure nursing students the complexities of ethics in practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Limited opportunities exist for prelicensure nursing students to observe the interprofessional process required to resolve complex ethical cases in practice. Therefore, a mock hospital ethics committee (MHEC) was assembled to teach the application of ethics in practice through simulation. The MHEC meeting is an example of how nursing education and practice can partner to create meaningful learning experiences.
