Abstract

Rural nurses are expected to be competent and confident caregivers for patients of all ages and disease states. Rural nurse educators are challenged with creating appropriate learning environments to assess and maintain nursing competencies in resource-limited areas. This project describes and evaluates the utilization of a simulation manikin from a local community college to provide a hands-on learning environment for rural nurses working with pediatric patients in respiratory distress.
