 A comparison of clinical simulation and case study presentation on nurse practitioner students’ knowledge and confidence in managing a cardiac event.


 International Journal of Nursing Education Scholarship, 4(1), 1-14.



The authors, nursing faculty at the University of Buffalo, reported on a quasi experimental pilot study designed to compare the efficacy of using a simulation mannequin (SM) (n = 13) versus a case study presentation (control n = 10) on the knowledge and confidence of acute-care nurse practitioner (NP) students (N = 23) regarding the management of a cardiac event. The study utilized pre-test/post-test for knowledge and confidence with both groups. Results showed no significant difference in knowledge test scores between the experimental (SM) and control (case-study) groups. However, the control group scored significantly higher in posttest confidence. Details of the study, along with statistics are presented and discussed as well as the limitations and needs for further research. Provided a good pilot study for the comparison of the use of high fidelity human patient simulators to the use of the same scenario as a case study presentation/discussion utilizing similar objectives for each group. The authors stated that testing of instruments needed to be addressed and this would have been a valuable addition to the article.
