 The effect of simulation learning on critical thinking and self-confidence when incorporated into an electrocardiogram nursing course.


 Clinical Simulation in Nursing, 5, e45-e52



Brown and Chronister, of the University of Akron, seek to determine whether nursing students who received high-fidelity human simulator (HFHS) experience along with a didactic ECG course would have improved critical thinking and self-confidence compared to students who only received didactic content. Benner’s novice to expert theory provides the theoretical framework for this study. The researchers measured their hypothesis with a “customized, computerized, multiformat exam†and a researcher developed tool (p. 46). Operational definitions of critical thinking and self-confidence are provided. Ultimately, critical thinking was not significantly increased from the control group, but self-confidence increased after HFHS experiences. Yet, numerous limitations require that these results be considered carefully.
