University to Celebrate October 29 Grand Opening of Innovative Phoenix Nursing Center

Chesney notes that the most important learning comes after students have participated in one of the scenarios. They join faculty and fellow students in the observation/debriefing room to review their actions—and reactions—to a particular situation and assess the outcome.

"Usually, our faculty don't need to say a word; our nursing students already have determined how they could improve their response to each scenario," Chesney said. "That's very important to this process. It allows the students to formulate their own conclusions and solutions. The immersive learning augments what students are doing in their real-life clinical rotations and helps them become better thinkers, and ultimately, better nurses."
