Telehealth and telenursing using simulation for pre-licensure USA students.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

An innovative simulation was used to teach pre-licensure USA nursing students about telenursing for screening, assessment, and patient education during a home visit. The students used telepresence technology to deliver nursing care to a homebound geriatric patient. After the simulation, students (N = 73) felt increased confidence with the skills needed to deliver telenursing care and in using telepresence technology. Students reported that they modified and improved their communication in order to adapt to perceived barriers posed by the new technology. As telenursing becomes more prevalent for managing patient care at a distance, nursing programs will need to incorporate educational strategies to reflect this change.
