Abstract

The use of simulation is growing in popularity in nursing education (Comer, 2005). More specifically, the use of computerized, interactive mannequins is beneficial for students to develop clinical nursing skills in a safe learning environment). We have completed a focus group driven study that captures the perspectives of nurse educators directly in the midst of developing the space and place of simulation in our nursing curriculum. These focus groups were given specific questions outlined in this paper. The results from the focus groups can then guide the further implementation of simulation in our curriculum and provide the basis of our presentation. From this exploratory paper, valuable information will be presented to promote further discourse and result in future research opportunities related to the application of simulation in nursing education.
