About the project
Norwegian health care requires competent and reflected nurses, trained to take care of the patient at all stages. Simulation based learning is part of the nurse-education, and allows the students to develop different skills. Students makes assessments, solve problems and make decisions within a safe environment.
The aim of the study is to determine the extent to which repeated simulation based learning during three years of nursing education contribute to increased clinical competence.
A longitudinal study provides an opportunity to map the students' learning and development through simulation. The study has a quasi-experimental design with an intervention group and a control group. The intervention is repeated simulation training trough 3 years of study.
The study has essentially a quantitative approach. Data will be collected using different questionnaires. In addition, it is planned to conduct qualitative focus group interviews with final year students to elucidate students' retrospective experience of simulation.
VID's research group Learning in professional education and practice has broad competence in simulation as a method and is an important collaboration partner.
