Caring for more than one patient at a time is an experience that rarely occurs during most undergraduate nursing programs. Learning this complex patient management task typically occurs during the senior or final year of the undergraduate registered nurse educational program, within the clinical environment of an acute or long term care setting. One option to increase the rate of occurrence of this type of learning experience is to assign simultaneous multiple patient simulation (SMPS). Simultaneous multiple patient simulation is a relatively new educational activity and the literature reveals little about the learning outcomes related to SMPS. More research is needed regarding how to implement SMPS and what students learn during SMPS. The purpose of this presentation is to describe a project that resulted in the design, planning, implementation and evaluation of one SMPS that took place during the senior year of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at a major western health sciences university. A plan is in place to repeat a similar SMPS for senior nursing students in 2017, with the addition of a pre and post survey to elicit data regarding the impact of SMPS on student learning. Although this learning modality can be resource intensive, it may be a very good method used to expand the knowledge and skill base of new graduate nurses, and better prepare them for their first professional registered nurse position.
