Re: Clinic versus Simulation hours

Coming from INASCL in San Antonio, it seems that a 1:1 ratio for simulation to clinical is beyond what the majority of others across the nation are doing. From the speakers at the INASCL conference, the ratio was anywhere from 0.5-0.75 hrs clinical /1hour sim because the simulation activity is more intense and requiring the nurse to act with more autonomy than in most clinical situations. Our University is struggling to find an acceptable ratio for simulation and has yet to standardize this issue.
