dc.description.abstractHigh fidelity simulation technology is being used as an alternative way to expose students to complex patient care. Research has shown that simulation experiences can improve critical thinking skills and increase students‟ self-confidence (Jeffries & Rizzolo, 2006). The purpose of this study was to examine nurse educator and nursing student perceptions of the best ways to prepare for and implement high fidelity human patient simulation. Data were collected from associate degree nursing faculty and students at five community colleges that use high-fidelity simulation. A mixed methods design was used to answer the seven research questions. Qualitative data were examined for patterns and themes. Descriptive statistics were used to determine participants‟ perceptions of the value and presence of educational best practices in the simulation. Relationships between student and teacher participants‟ perceptions of educational practices and simulation design characteristics were analyzed for congruency in their perceptions.
