Simulation is an essential tool in academic and clinical settings, but technology changes quickly, and faculty, students, and clinicians need to know how to respond. Understanding simulation scenarios and environments is critical when designing and implementing effective programs for interdisciplinary learners. In this fully revised second edition of Mastering Simulation, nationally known experts Janice Palaganas, Beth Ulrich, and Beth Mancini guide students and practitioners in developing clinical competencies and provide a solid foundation for improving patient outcomes.

This fully revised new edition covers:

  • Creating simulation scenarios and improving learner performance
  • Designing program evaluations and managing risk and quality improvement
  • Developing interprofessional programs and designing research using simulation

Praise for: Mastering Simulation 2nd Edition

“The first edition of Mastering Simulation contained all the essentials, but since its publication in 2014, there have been phenomenal advancements in both the art and science of simulation. The second edition’s editors and authors capture those changes, describe current best practices, and again provide an essential reference for ‘mastering simulation.’ Perfect timing and a ‘masterful’ job!”

—Mary Anne Rizzolo, EdD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, FSSH Consultant, National League for Nursing

“These renowned editors have thought of everything! From novice to expert simulationists, there is something for everyone. This book takes the reader through the various stages of simulation design and application, with considerations for both academic and clinical environments. The chapters on research, operations, and career building round out an already exceptional book. If you are involved in simulation, you must have this book on your shelf.”

–Nicole Harder, PhD, RN, CHSE, CCSNE Assistant Professor, College of Nursing Mindermar Professor in Human Simulation, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada Editor-in-Chief, Clinical Simulation in Nursing
