Simulated practice learning in a preregistration programme

Simulated practice learning in a preregistration programme

British Journal of Nursing 21(7): 435-440

Following the publication of the Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) (2007) Simulation of Practice Learning Project, simulated practice learning opportunities are now to be incorporated into preregistration undergraduate nursing programmes across the UK. Since 2008, the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Oxford Brookes University has incorporated simulated practice learning into their curriculum to contribute towards students' 2300 direct clinical care hours. This paper presents the findings of an evaluation project that was conducted by academic staff within the faculty to ensure that they could continue to meet the principles set out by the NMC for auditing simulated learning environments used by higher education institutes (HEIs), and to meet the Essential Skills Clusters (NMC, 2010a) for registration as part of the quality assurance processes. The evaluation took place over 2 days, with a total of 52 participants, including practice partners, mentors, practice educators, academic staff and students from all four branches of nursing (adult, mental health, learning disability and children). Results indicated that the support of direct care hours through simulated practice learning can permit students to practice essential clinical skills in a designated clinical skills suite. These learning experiences can also offer positive outcomes and the opportunities to maintain partnership for students, placement partners, and mentors.
