Conventional Types of Simulation


Low
-
fidelity simulation


specific to a narrow scope of skills,
partial task trainers


R
ole
play and group
activities


“Static manikin” or “task trainers”


one narrow task practice
(e.g., ear or prostate)



Moderate
-
fidelity simulation


two
-
dimensional experience

(
e.g., IV arms, sutures
), focuses on problem solving




High
-
fidelity simulation


life
-
like mannequins, Harvey
simulators





PC
-
Based Simulation

(National Counsel of State Boards of Nursing, 2007)



Limitations



No physical interaction


Low fidelity


Learning curve


Strengths



Guaranteed experience for every student


Easy, flexible, unlimited access


Useful for knowledge acquisition and critical thinking


Accommodating to individual pace of learning


Good for lower/entry level students


Relatively low cost
