Learn best practices for successfully integrating virtual simulation into nursing curriculum Written for students in nurse educator programs, nursing faculty, and other health care educators, Virtual Simulation in Nursing Education unpacks the necessary tools for successful integration of technology into nursing programs. The benefits of virtual simulation in nursing education are innumerable: less expensive, easier to access, and location independent compared with nondigital simulations. Yet the evolving nature of both curricula and technology complicates the implementation of a coherent integration plan. Success requires a coordinated impetus from faculty, administrators, and students to enrich a technologically enhanced learning landscape. With a practical, how-to focus, this book describes the unique dynamics and demands of using virtual simulation as a core teaching method and focuses on the best practices for integrating this technology into the nursing curriculum. The first text to detail systematic strategies for faculty, students, and administrators, Virtual Simulation in Nursing Education examines the most effective teaching methods and activities, discusses challenges and pitfalls to integrating virtual simulation into a curriculum, and examines how learning outcomes are met. With an eye toward motivating students to embrace technology throughout their careers, content illustrates how students can leverage technologies to maximize learning and support practice. Replete with savvy tips from virtual simulation experts, chapters include exemplars that present the models in real-life scenarios, and clinical reasoning questions to reinforce learning. Key Features: Accompanied by an Instructor’s Manual and PowerPoint slides Teaches students of nurse educator programs, nurse educators, and administrators how to successfully use virtual simulation Provides useful tools, best practices, and savvy strategies for integrating technology into the curriculum Includes examples and clinical reasoning questions to reinforce content Demonstrates how students can maximize learning and support practice with virtual simulation technology Provides a firm foundation for students to embrace technology throughout their careers

"This is a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in integrating gaming and simulation into a course or the entire curricula. It presents the theory and the associated practical application. The extensive reference list and resource/product list encourage and support readers with implementation." Score: 98, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews "Game-Based Teaching and Simulation in Nursing and Healthcare is a timely, exhaustive look at how emerging technologies are transforming clinical education. Anyone looking for firsthand, direct account of how game-based learning technologies are reshaping clinical practice needs this book." Kurt Squire, PhD Associate Professor Games+Learning+Society [GLS] School of Education University Of Wisconsin - Madison This innovative text provides practical strategies for developing, integrating, and evaluating new and emerging technology, specifically game-based learning methods, useful in nursing and clinical health sciences education. The text draws upon existing models of experiential learning such as Benner's "thinking-in-action" and "novice-to-expert" frameworks, and introduces current theories supporting the phenomenon of the created learning environment. Chapters explain how simulation and game-based learning strategies can be designed, implemented, and evaluated to improve clinical educational thinking and outcomes and increase exposure to critical experiences to inform clinicians during the journey from novice to expert. The text also describes how game-based learning methods can support the development of complex decision-making and critical thinking skills. Case studies throughout demonstrate the practical application of harnessing technology as a teaching/learning device. Key Features: Provides strategies for developing, integrating, and evaluating game-based learning methods for nursing and healthcare educators Prepares teachers for the paradigm shift from static "e-learning" to dynamic distance experiential learning in virtual and game-based environments Illustrates how to integrate game-based learning into existing curricula Offers theoretical and practical examples of how game-based learning technologies can be used in nursing and clinical education
