Simulation BS in Nursing Degree

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree integrates simulation to train future nurses in the acquisition of the skills and competencies necessary to develop a professional practice centered on the patient and their environment, guided by current standards and scientific evidence. This was established around the innovative "SimZones" model of the Boston Children's Hospital (Roussin and Weinstock), by developing simulation activities throughout the four courses of the degree, adapting them to the level of knowledge and skills of each stage.

For our students, simulation is a reality from day one. It begins in the first year with the training of technical skills in zones 0 and 1 (venipuncture, catheterization, physical examination, sutures...), by healthcare professionals. Through these sessions, students are able to practice with those professionals, who guide them and offer feedback from their experienced perspective, based on the latest clinical practice guidelines. This training is complemented by carrying out integrated clinical cases where skills such as teamwork, communication, leadership, etc. are put into practice.

In the following years, and through simulation in zones 0, 1 and 2, students are trained in the role of the nurse in the different contexts of clinical practice (hospitalization, primary care, critical care units).
