Clinical Simulations In Nursing: Debriefing and Development Of Students’ Clinical Judgement Abilities

Yvon Brunet M. Éd. Teacher, Cégep de Sainte-Foy

The project of clinical immersion simulation at Cégep de Sainte-Foy came into being following the withdrawal of the ECOS (Examen clinique objectif structuré) that the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec used for the licensing exam. This exam served to assess the clinical judgement of graduating students in practical situations. Our department also used scenarios of the ECOS from previous years to assess the students at the end of each session while at the same time allowing them to prepare for the licensing exam at the end of their college courses.
