Interprofessional Education: Insights From a Cohort of Nursing Students
Journal for Nurses in Professional Development
The central research questions of this study sought to understand the experiences of nursing students participating in an interprofessional simulation experience. This study used a nonrandom, purposive sample of 75 nursing students from one Midwestern university. Conventional content analysis was used to analyze the data. Five primary themes emerged from the data: (a) benefits of interprofessional collaboration, (b) communication, (c) real-life learning, (d) increased self-confidence, and (e) intraprofessional collaboration. The results of this study reveal the value of participation in interprofessional simulation activities and emphasize the need for continued development and implementation of such activity into nursing education.
