Abstract

While other industries have effectively used simulation as an educational strategy to improve safety and performance, nurse educators have not yet embraced this as an educational tool for safety initiatives. This article examines the benefit of using simulation exercises as an adjunct to didactic teaching and describes how one hospital's nurse educators adapted simulation methodology to educate the nurses on the complexity of safe medication administration and the importance of critical thinking in daily practice.
