Good morning, everyone. I am the skills lab coordinator at a fairly small private college, but almost 1/3 of the students are nursing students (undergrad and grad). I am currently in a master's program and am starting to work on my project (as opposed to a thesis). My assistant and I have recently opened our sim lab with a SimMan3G and SimBaby. We will be starting sim time in the fall.
My question to you is this- I am looking at developing either a video or a manual for either student or faculty orientation to the sim lab. What do you think is needed the most? I am thinking to focus on the students right now, so that I can use it for our lab. It will just be myself and my asssistant running the simulations in the fall and we hope to train faculty for the spring semester.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I have noticed in my clinical placements (for my degree) that the students don't get a lot of time with the manikin or room orientation and have also noted that as a comment in several studies. Thanks and have a great day!
