    While confronting many challenges related to changes in health care, higher education, and clinical practice, nurse educators are exploring new opportunities for innovative teaching/learning methods, new clinical models, and educational practices to provide high-quality education to promote optimal, quality patient care. Clinical simulations can provide health care educators one approach to create student-centered, experiential environments that engage and prepare the learner for real-world practice. 

    Clinical Simulations in Nursing Education: Advanced Concepts, Trends, and Opportunities provides chapters authored by expert simulation researchers, educators, and users to shed light on important advancements and emerging topics in clinical simulation including:

     • Enhanced interprofessional education and practice through simulation
     • Meaningful debriefing
     • Expansion of clinical simulation globally
     • Development of a good business plan and consideration of the economic model of a simulation center
     • Research and evaluation of clinical simulation
     • High-stakes simulation
     • Certification of educators and accreditation of simulation centers
