Metacognitive skills: Practice makes perfect?
The ability to use simulation in nursing education to support student development of non-technical skills in professional nursing practice is rapidly evolving. One example of a non-technical skill is clinical judgment with the specific components of noticing, interpreting, responding, and evaluating. Contextual learning experiences such as traditional and simulated clinical provide opportunities for the students to practice these non-technical skills. Because traditional clinical experiences are considered the standard, research is necessary in order to examine possible differences between the traditional and simulated clinical experiences related to nursing students' development of non-technical skills.
