This review will explore the use of simulation to develop leadership skills in nursing students in undergraduate nursing education programs.
Leadership skills are traditionally incorporated into nursing curriculum as a stand-alone course. A demonstrated need for leadership skills in nursing graduates and recent evidence on the effectiveness of simulation in nursing education programs has led to increased use of simulation to develop leadership skills in undergraduate nursing students. Identification, explication, and mapping of the various strategies are required to help advance the use of simulation to develop leadership skills in nursing education.
Papers that focus on the use of simulation strategies specifically related to the development of nursing leadership skills in undergraduate nursing students will be included. Papers focused on post-registration/licensure nurses, graduate nurses, nurse practitioners, midwives, allied health care professionals, or psychomotor nursing skills will be excluded.
This review will be conducted in accordance with JBI methodology for scoping reviews and will consider English-language literature from 2000 to the present. Data will be extracted from the following databases: CINAHL Plus with Full Text (EBSCO); MEDLINE (R) and Epub Ahead of Print (Ovid), In-Process, In-Data-Review and Other Non-Indexed Citations, and Daily and Versions (R); PsycINFO (Ovid); Embase (Ovid); ERIC (EBSCO); and ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source. The search will also include unpublished non-peer-reviewed literature. The objective of this review is explore the use of simulation to develop leadership skills in nursing students in undergraduate nursing education programs
