Marilyn Hughes, Core CaseE d u c a t i o n a l R a t i o n a l eThis scenario is developed as one out of 20 Simulation in Nursing Education scenarios thataddress major learning objectives focused on core as well as complex nursing care concepts. Thesimulation scenarios are designed to encourage participants to assess and manage the patients,identify and prioritize patient problems, and perform key interventions for safe and effective patientcare. The learning objectives and case studies have been developed to provide a high degree offidelity within the simulations, address different levels of complexity, and facilitate the postsimulation debriefing. The scenarios are specifically developed for use with the SimMan simulatorand the SimMan Essential and SimMan 3G simulators utilizing Instructor Mode, Classic View.L e a r n i n g O b j e c t i v e sGeneral:Identifies the primary nursing diagnosisImplements patient safety measuresEvaluates patient assessment information including vitalsignsImplements therapeutic communicationImplements direct communication with multidisciplinary teammembersDemonstrates effective teamworkPrioritizes and implements Physician Orders appropriatelyScenario Specific:Recalls indications, contraindications, and potential adverse effects of prescribed medicationsImplements the “5 rights” of medication administration
