dc.description.abstractBackground: The nation's demographics and health care needs are changing, concurrent with the demand to double the number of doctorally prepared nurses by 2020. This combination has intensified challenges associated with finding quality clinical placements and appropriate preceptors for nurse practitioner (NP) students. Purposefully integrated simulations offer alternate experiences and expose students to deliberately crafted and consistent learning opportunities. Methods: Scaffolded simulations were integrated within an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program over the course of six semesters. Results: Analysis is currently underway, but preliminary data show that simulation experiences helped to develop assessment, critical thinking, and decision-making skills. The students also felt better prepared to communicate with other health care providers in this new role. Conclusion: Although resource intensive, simulation provides an unparalleled opportunity for NP students to independently perform, without direct supervision, as an NP. Presenting an example of simulation integration can aid other educators seeking to develop a similar program.en_US
