Nursing Simulation: A Review of the Past 40 Years
Nehring, Wendy M.; Lashley, Felissa R.
Simulation & Gaming, v40 n4 p528-552 2009
Simulation, in its many forms, has been a part of nursing education and practice for many years. The use of games, computer-assisted instruction, standardized patients, virtual reality, and low-fidelity to high-fidelity mannequins have appeared in the past 40 years, whereas anatomical models, partial task trainers, and role playing were used earlier. A historical examination of these many forms of simulation in nursing is presented, followed by a discussion of the roles of simulation in both nursing education and practice. A viewpoint concerning the future of simulation in nursing concludes this article. (Contains 1 figure.)
