As use of simulations increases in nursing education, nurse educators are challenged to evaluate students' clinical judgment skills. The purpose of this article is to describe faculty development in the use of the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric (LCJR); faculty application of LCJR in evaluating students' clinical judgment skills during a simulation(More)
The purpose of this article is to summarize the methods and findings from three different approaches examining the reliability and validity of data from the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric (LCJR) using human patient simulation. The first study, by Adamson, assessed the interrater reliability of data produced using the LCJR using intraclass correlation(More)
Clinical judgment development is critical to preparing students to safely meet the needs of an aging population. Evidence linking manikin-based simulation and clinical judgment is sparse.The purpose of this quasi-experimental international study was to determine the effect of expert role modeling on nursing students' clinical judgment in the care of a(More)
This study examined the influence of three simulation preparation methods (expert modeling/intervention, voice-over PowerPoint/active control, and reading assignments/passive control) on improving novice nurses' competence and self-efficacy for providing care to multiple simulated patients. Both competence and self-efficacy were measured at baseline and(More)
Due to today's complex needs of hospitalized patients, nurses' competence and strategies to improve competence are of growing importance. Simulation is commonly used to influence competence, but little evidence exists for comparing how presimulation assignments influence competence. A randomized control trial was used to compare the efficacy of three(More)
Preparing undergraduate nursing students to practice nursing in the 21st century requires a focus on the development of evidence-based practice and outcomes management knowledge and skills throughout the nursing curriculum. To this end, seven learning activities were created that spiral and increase in complexity while building on previously acquired(More)
This study aimed to determine a poverty simulation's influence on nursing students' attitudes toward poverty. Five cohorts of baccalaureate nursing students participated in the study; two cohorts (experimental group, n = 103) participated in the simulation and three did not (control group, n = 75). The Attitudes Towards Poverty Short Form was administered(More)
Calls for multisite studies are increasing in nursing education. However, the challenge of implementing consistent protocols and maintaining rigorous standards across sites can be daunting. One purpose of a recent multisite, collaborative, simulation study was to evaluate a digital toolkit's effectiveness for managing a multisite study. We describe the(More)
