Description 

Praise for the First Edition:

“The authors of this review manual have captured all of the elements of simulation from establishing the objectives of simulated learning experiences, to constructing scenarios, to debriefing students and the simulation team, to assessing and evaluating the learning that has accrued. They have also described the range of simulation options and the contexts for their most effective use.”

--Gloria F. Donnelly, PhD, RN, FAAN, FCPP, Dean and Professor

College of Nursing and Health Professions, Drexel University
