Simulated Patients for Nurse Training

The School of Health and Social Care at the University of Gloucestershire has recently undergone major investment for the development of BSc Adult Nursing and refurbishment of its buildings with the development of Skills Simulation Suite. This will include the most up to date simulation equipment designed to closely mirror clinical practice in order to provide excellent opportunities for the development and practice for nursing students.

They are currently looking to recruit people who have an interest in shaping the future of nursing care in Gloucestershire, in order to support the education of our students through the use of simulated patient care.

Simulated patients are people who play the role of someone that the students might meet as part of their clinical practice; this enables students to practice and develop their nursing skills around communication and care prior to going into their placements. Your experience would benefit the students and future service users by you being able to ‘play the patient’ by being the actual patient, or relative, while the students have to assess, plan and care for you.

Full training and support is provided.

If you feel you would like to shape the direction of future nursing care and can offer your time around 1-6 days a year, then please get in touch with the contact below.
