Adamson, a doctoral student, conducted a qualitative survey among deans and directors of associate degree nursing (ADN) programs in a Western state. The goal of the study was to assess the number of ADN programs in a Western state with human patient simulation (HPS) equipment and equipment usage in order to determine whether HPS resources are being used to their fullest potential. The second phase of the study evaluated faculty experiences with HPS and their perceptions of barriers, facilitators, and incentives for HPS use. The investigator found that programs with HPS equipment used it 0-4 hours per week and that 71% of survey participants had used HPS in a course. Barriers to HPS use identified by faculty were lack of time, support, training, and incentive. In general, Adamson reported that study findings were consistent with previous research in this field.
