Use of Screen-Based Simulation in Nursing Schools in France: A National, Descriptive Study
Background: Clinical simulation is a major component of undergraduate healthcare training. However, data are lacking regarding simulation modalities used in Europe. The purpose of this national study is to describe how screen-based simulation (SBS) is being used as well as identify the barriers to its use in nursing schools in France. Methods: This study employed a descriptive design with 207 nursing schools in France. Nursing school leaders (Deans, Heads of School, Simulation Coordinators or Leaders) were asked to complete an online survey. Results: Traditional simulation was used in 92% of the nursing schools, but only 41% used SBS. Most nursing schools used SBS in a face-to-face format with students paired at a computer followed by a debriefing or alone at home. SBS is used mostly to teach decision making and clinical reasoning.
