 Incorporating standardized patients into a psychosocial nurse practitioner program.


 Archives of Psychiatric Nursing, 8(5), 240-247.



The authors, nurse practitioner faculty from a large university in Washington state, reported on their use of trained lay persons as standardized patients (SP) in clinical simulation scenarios to help educate psychosocial nurse practitioners. The authors provided very detailed description and guidelines for the development of clinical scenarios, selection/ hiring/training of SPs, as well as the preparation, evaluation and documentation of student performance. They concluded that SPs are a versatile and valuable strategy for teaching nurse practitioner students. Anecdotal results were reported indicating that students were highly positive about the experiences and wanted to have more use of SPs. A structured study with some statistical data would have been a good addition. Provided very detailed directions/guides for using SPs in the education of nurse practitioners.
