Simulation block is your opportunity for you to put all the great things you have learnt into practice. During simulation block you have opportunity to think like a nurse, talk like a nurse and acting like a nurse. During simulation you get to work with your peers, learn new skills and build your confidence to be a great nurse!
The simulation block is designed for me to develop their clinical skills and start putting theory into practice. Over the course of the week I had a great chance to practice a variety of clinical skills including communication, documentation, patient assessment and fundamentals of care.
The Simulation block helps students prepare for placement and the aim is to develop the necessary clinical skills to have a safe and productive first placement. During the week, you will be introduced to the concept of clinical assessments and peer feedback. Throughout your nursing career you will have regular clinical assessments from annual basic life support to annual maths tests, and the simulation block is a great place to become more confident in clinical assessment.
