Enhancing Patient Safety in Nursing Education Through Patient Simulation
Continuous assessment of nursing competence is vital to promoting patient safety. Simulation training is a recommended strategy that can be utilized to help prevent errors in clinical settings. In simulation, learners are able to participate in interactive learning experiences. The learners are able to apply, develop, and refine knowledge and skills in realistic patient care scenarios that are designed to meet their educational needs. Through the use of simulation education, the learners gain experience, learn and refine skills, and gain competency. As a result, patient safety and care outcomes improve.
