Simulation is gaining momentum in nurse education across the United Kingdom. This article gives a brief history of simulation, discusses competence and why simulation is best placed to teach nurses in today’s health service.
An innovative approach to implementing simulation into the nursing curriculum is introduced: the Programme for Nursing Curriculum Integration (PNCI) has been designed to assist in the integration of human patient simulation throughout the pre-registration nursing curriculum.
The original PNCI that was developed in North America in 2005 was reviewed and updated in 2008 with ten additional SCEs. In 2009, the PNCI for Canada was launched and in 2010 the PNCI for the United Kingdom will be reviewed and amended in line with changes in nursing practice.
The PNCI along with the METI family of simulators allows faculties of health and social care to easily and effectively develop an evidence-based simulation curriculum to prepare nurses for caring in the twenty-first century and beyond.
