In 2014, an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program in Texas displayed an interest in implementing a teaching method conducive to improve students’ critical thinking ability and increase their confidence level in providing quality patient care. The project question was, “In Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students with a low level of confidence and inadequate critical thinking skills, how effective is simulation compared to case study scenario activities in assisting students to develop the confidence and critical thinking skills necessary to make effective clinical decisions?” The purpose sought to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of simulation versus the traditional classroom lecture. The project’s aims were to develop a teaching method that will increase the students’ confidence and critical thinking skills necessary to provide care to patients.
