Why NICU Nurses Love Sim Central Training?
AbstractObjective: The main objective of this survey was to assess the efficiency of Comprehensive simulation program in Mock Code training among neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurses.Method: A survey consisting of five questions on the topic Mock Code training was conducted in Sim central at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, Amarillo, TX. To gather feedback from Sim Central trainees we requested 47 NICU nurses from North West Texas Healthcare system to participate in the study and asked them to grade the satisfaction from 1 (being strongly disagree) to 5 (being strongly agree). No low ratings of 1 or 2 were submitted.Result: The summary of the response was: A. Compared with previous training, training received at Sim Central for Mock Codes provided a better learning experience? Evaluation grade/ responses: 3 (10.6%); 4(21.27%); 5 (63.8%). B. Does having a “patient” with “vital signs” such as “breath sound” and, “heart beat” enhanced the learning experience? Evaluation grade/ responses: 3(6.3%), 4 (25.5%); 5 (63.8%). C. Was there enough time to practice skills? Evaluation grade/ responses: 3 (2.1%), 4 (40.42%); 5 (57.44%). D. Was all the equipment needed for Mock Code training available? Evaluation grade/ responses: 3 (8.5%); 4 (40.42%); 5 (51%). E. Was orientation/training at Sim Central adequate for you to function in the NICU? Evaluation grade/ responses: 3(2.1%), 4 (40.42%); 5 (57.44%).Conclusion: From this survey, Comprehensive simulation program found to be effective and well received by NICU nurses for Mock Code training.
