With many students per faculty, it may be a challenge to allow students enough time in simulation to improve both their competence and their confidence. Simulation based on the principles of peer learning is a novel approach rooted in sound pedagogical thinking. In a sense, it may be seen as “flipped classroom” applied to simulation.
By using standardized scenarios focusing on core nursing skills, students can practice together until they feel ready to have a member of faculty assess or review their performance. This methodology provides added flexibility and increase utilization of the simulation facilities.
