Clinical Simulation in Nursing
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.
This multisite, multimeasure study used a purposive, quasiexperimental pretest-posttest design.
Simulation positively impacted performance change scores. Pretest scores were positively associated with simulation scores and posttest scores.
The findings from this study support the use of high-fidelity simulation to improve care of the diabetic patient.
