Developing Simulated Learning Experiences

 
 
 
Hi Kristie. Our nursing program took out phlebotomy on one another 4 years ago due to liability. Our students only used to practice IV insertion on each other, never injections. We did allow our students to administer TB tests but they were 2nd year students already signed off as competent. I really doubt you are going to be successful in finding literature to support NOT doing injections on each other because of liability. What I would recommend is producing evidence on simulation in general. We no longer have students do "tasks", we now use simulation and create experiences that include such tasks. Students practice skills on manikins in the lab, but are expected to demonstrate competently during a simulation experience.
Good luck in your search. Let me know if I can help in any other way.
