Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Background: The Institute of Medicine Report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health provides direction for educators to use simulation and Web-based learning. Virtual clinical simulation (VCS) is an innovative approach offering Web-based simulations. The aim of this article is to provide an integrative review of the literature and explore the state of the science of VCS in nursing. Method: The Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature database and Medline were explored, and 86 articles were selected as relevant and reviewed. Results: Only 3 studies were located that formally examined the use of VCS in nursing. Conclusion: VCS is an emerging educational venue that warrants further investigation.
