Student Nurse Simulation Training Incorporating Disease Management and Telenursing for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Patients

Telehealth is an ideal situation to combine with simulation in the education of the nursing students. Educating students in the care of chronically ill patients and preparing them to care for these patients in the community is a recurring theme that nurses will continue to face in the future. This chapter delineates the development and study of a student nurse simulation training incorporating disease management and telenursing for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients. The chapter lays the foundation for replicating the activity at other universities. In addition, the chapter depicts the study results of the initiated pilot program. The surveys completed prior to the simulation activity found the students felt the need for such an exercise before graduation. The students also responded that simulation in education is a useful tool. They were also interested in learning more about CHF patients in the simulation lab. Following the study, the students reported feeling that the inclusion of disease management and telehealth was helpful. The students also weighed in on which level of nursing student they believed was most appropriate for learning the content. Overall, the response by the students was positive regarding this activity and simulation education, in general, as based upon their survey comments.
