Fundamentals of Nursing students get to experience their first simulation lab where they have to completely assess a patient and interact with concerned family members.  Here students are given the opportunity to make mistakes in a safe controlled environment and learn from other classmates.  Simulations involve not only a pre scenario briefing, but also a post debriefing to talk about how they felt with the experience, what they learned, and what they would change if they were to do it again.
