Simulation in Interprofessional Education: A Case Study with Baccalaureate Nursing Faculty

2016, Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Ohio University, Instructional Technology (Education).
Nursing programs across the country are facing the challenge of providing students with optimal clinical skill learning experiences. Faculty members are rising to this challenge in a variety of ways, and current research in nursing education advocates the addition of interprofessional education to the nursing curriculum. History and governing bodies explain how nursing education can achieve this goal but faculty have to implement required and suggested changes. Further research is needed to gain insight into perceptions of the baccalaureate nursing faculty of interprofessional education and how the simulation in interprofessional experience contributes to overall patient safety. Patient safety is a priority in nursing and by using simulation as a safe place for a nursing student to learn, and then patient safety is enhanced.

A qualitative case study was used to explore how the use of interprofessional education by baccalaureate nursing faculty can prepare nursing students to provide quality care to real patients. Baccalaureate nursing faculty from a large midwestern university in the United States of America participated in a case study that involved an interprofessional education simulation experience. Faculty were asked to participate in a set of interviews both before and after the completion of a simulated interprofessional education experience. Additionally, the case study participants were asked to provide narrative reflective journal writings of their experiences with any simulation interprofessional education experience or any other interprofessional experience. Additional methods of observation, field notes, and focus group, were used by the researcher to gain an understanding of the faculty lived experiences. Findings from this study will aid in curricular changes within healthcare education regarding simulation in interprofessional education.
