Clinical simulation to teach nursing care for wounded patients

ABSTRACT Objective: to report the experience of constructing and applicating clinical simulation scenarios for the evaluation and treatment of wounds. Method: experience report on two simulation scenarios for nursing care of wounded patients applied to nursing undergraduates. We structured simulations based on the model from the National League for Nursing/Jeffries Simulation Framework. The scenarios were evaluated by the instrument Simulation Design Scale and the students by the experience with the simulation. Results: the scenarios reproduced nursing care situations with the application of role play and moulage, which allowed us to evaluate and discuss the wound treatment. Reflections on the debriefing were important for the teaching-learning process and association between theory and practice, these factors determined the satisfaction of students with the activity. Conclusion: using clinical simulation scenarios to teach students favored the clinical reasoning and decision-making in the evaluation and treatment of wounds.
