Abstract

Nursing education is a lifelong process. It is dynamic. Nurse educators strive to develop student-centered collaborative teaching strategies. Simulation serves as strategy to teach clinical reasoning skills and prepare students to provide safe, effective patient care. Increasing patient acuity and lack of clinical sites make simulation an essential and integral part of nursing education. This paper demonstrates the value of using Carper’s (1978) fundamental patterns of knowing in nursing as a theoretical foundation for the integration of simulation-based learning experiences in nursing education.
