Presentation Abstract:

This CE webinar will explore the application of a low-cost virtual simulation for Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) students as an effective way to teach non-technical, leadership skills by combining available technology and resources. Technology of low or no cost solutions were used to create an immersive experience that allowed students access to a timeline of critical events, recorded video interviews, and a live interaction with the family member. In the simulation, the DNP students function as hospital leaders in communicating medical error to a patient's family member. The National League for Nursing Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning's survey was used to measure outcomes. The majority of students reported the teaching method was effective and motivating and covered critical content necessary for the mastery of advanced practice nursing.

Learning Objectives:

  1. List the steps taken to create a low-cost asynchronous virtual simulation suitable for graduate nurse education.
  2. Describe how to use virtual simulation to support the instruction of advanced practice nursing leadership skills.
  3. Identify strategies used to create virtual simulation tools and environments that are low-cost to the nursing program.
