Abstract

Background

It is essential that nurses be prepared to provide quality care for patients with diabetes, a common condition today. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a high-fidelity simulation on traditional prelicensure nursing students' knowledge and performance related to care of the diabetic patient.

Methods

This multisite, multimeasure study used a purposive, quasiexperimental pretest-posttest design.

Results

Simulation positively impacted performance change scores. Pretest scores were positively associated with simulation scores and posttest scores.

Conclusions

The findings from this study support the use of high-fidelity simulation to improve care of the diabetic patient.
