What Are Simulations?

Simulations are "an educational strategy in which a particular set of conditions are created or replicated to resemble authentic situations that are possible in real life (INACSL 2015)." Actors are used to create scenarios learners may be confronted with in the working environment.

 

Simulations Can Assist In:

  • Comprehension and refinement of lessons taught in class
  • Interaction skills with clientele
  • Interpersonal communications
  • Decision making & critical thinking
  • Practical application of learning
  • Hands on experience
  • Having a safe environment to practice skills


Due to the nature of the preparation needed for simulations and the need to recruit actors, it is required that all of this information is prepared and submitted to the Simulation Coordinator at least 1 month before the first day of the simulation.

What Faculty Say:

“This simulation allowed the students to have a near real life experience with a patient and parents and be able to practice their skills. It allows the students to have to think on their feet in a “safe” environment. It allowed them the time to use their critical thinking skills based on a scenario.”

What Actors Say:

“I have a lot of experience in productions and such, but the simulations was a different method to hone my skills. Here at Stockton we have many opportunities to perform on the entertainment side of theatre, but this was a chance to apply our skills to something else.”
