The article, available at ScienceDirect.com, explores the evidence related to how undergraduate nursing education utilizes an established framework when integrating standardized patient simulation. The identified gaps included: The lack of safety application, standardized patient hiring, using higher-level outcomes, establishing policies and procedures specific to SPs, and discussing the experiences of students, facilitators, and standardized patients.
While looking at the gaps provided above, the article concludes that standardized patient methodology in pre-licensure nursing is on the rise , it is still necessary that the experience of the undergraduate nursing student is theoretically grounded. That is where Avkin’s CEO, Amy Cowperthwait RN, MSN, CNS, CHSE-A, and her National League for Nursing (NLN)/Jeffries Simulation Framework for Simulated Participant Methodology can provide value to programs that are seeking to maximize outcomes with standardized patients.
“This is SUCH exciting news!” Amy Cowperthwait commented with excitement.
“I am so very honored that you selected the NLN/Jeffries Simulation Framework for Simulated Participant Methodology and I can not wait to read it! Congratulations Semiha Asli Bozkurt, Rosemary Samia, Priscilla Gazarian PhD RN! It is fantastic to see that my work at the University of Delaware continues to inform the simulation community even though I have fully transitioned to the CEO of Avkin!”
