This webinar will share simulation teaching strategies that guide students to apply family nursing knowledge while providing family-focused nursing actions. Caring for families has been recognized as a core of nursing practice. Research findings suggest that nursing practice in many health care settings does not fully attend to the family as a focus for care and nurses report concerns with their ability to provide family nursing practice. Simulation provides an innovative and  safe learning environment where students and nurses have the opportunity to practice family-nurse relationships, implement family-focused nursing actions, and learn family communication skills. This webinar is presented by Dr. Colleen Royle, Assistant Professor at The School of Nursing, Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA.  The School of Nursing at Minnesota State University, Mankato, prepares nurses who understand the significance of family and society in health care. The family-focused curriculum and simulation experiences in the bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs aim help students provide quality care to individuals, families and communities in all settings. 

The Two Learning Outcomes are:  

  1. Describe how the complexities of nurse-family communication and nursing care of families in health care delivery systems can be taught using simulation strategies.
  2. Describe specific elements of simulation learning experiences that can guide nursing students to gain confidence and competence in caring for families.

Target Audience
This program is particularly relevant for all nursing educators and administrators of nursing education programs.
