This 2-week compressed simulated clinical practice course is designed to assess the holistic health assessment and nursing skills of the registered practical nurse student. Through simulated clinical practice, students demonstrate their clinical skills, nursing competencies, and integration of previous knowledge, including nursing best practices. Students have opportunities to develop their therapeutic relationship abilities, interprofessional collaborative client-centred practice, decision making and clinical judgment, time management, and organizational skills. Successful completion of this course can assist students to develop a pathway to success in their transition to practicing nursing in Canadian healthcare settings.
