BACKGROUND: Simulation has demonstrated superiority over purely didactic instruction in multiple contexts, and educationalists have embraced this modality for enhancing access to clinical skills. However, there remains uncertainty if increasing the realism (fidelity) of simulation equipment heightens performance. To address this within nursing and allied health, this review examines if increasing equipment fidelity improves learning outcomes. METHODS: A systematic search of; CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, AMED; British Education Index, ERIC, MEDLINE, PsycARTICLES, PsycINFO, Maternity and Infant Care, INTERMID, Google Scholar, American Doctoral Dissertations, EThOS, ClinicalTrials...

BACKGROUND: Given the aging nursing education workforce and the persistent high demand for doctorally-prepared nursing faculty, there is a critical need to increase the number of nurses entering and completing PhD programs. To fill this need, accelerated PhD education pathways, such as the direct entry BSN/BS-PhD education pathway, have become popular. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to explore the unique characteristics of the direct entry BSN/BS-PhD student experience...

The potential impact of social media use in nursing education, continuing professional development, and nurses' advocacy is unfolding at a rapid pace. Nurse educators are uniquely placed to incorporate the use of social media to enhance students' learning experiences and support students to develop competency in the use of social media for patient benefit. This paper outlines a novel way in which professional education on social media use was integrated into an undergraduate nursing programme. Digital professionalism was cultivated together with collaborative active learning...

Simulation-based education using standardized patients is recognized as an effective education method from which students can learn in a safe and controlled environment, and instructors can provide consistent education. It has been reported that the level of standardized patients' satisfaction in the simulation experience positively affects to their case mastery and providing feedback to learners. This study aimed to explore standardized patients' lived experiences on nursing simulation using qualitative research to provide empirical resources to facilitate collaboration with standardized patients for efficacious nursing simulation...
