    Project goal: Use technology to solve a problem shared by most nursing schools with online degree programs where faculty are typically asked to perform site visits in order to assess how well nursing students are doing in their clinical placements. Since there are MSN students who take courses online and do clinical practicums near their places of residence, Duke faculty members spend a great deal of time, effort and resources travelling all over the country for site visits. To help make this process easier, Dr. Edie is developing a web-based simulation of a patient/student clinical encounter. This “virtual SIM lab” requires the student to perform an interactive history and examination of a “patient,” selecting diagnostic tests and procedures, developing diagnoses and differentials and therapeutic strategies. The student performance will be recorded. Faculty will be able to assess student progress by reviewing the recorded performance and the SOAP note that students use as written documentation of the patient/student encounter. Faculty will then use a standardized script that follows the approved Faculty Evaluation of Student Clinical Performance tool. It is expected that this intervention will be expanded to the Managing Common Acute and Chronic Health Problems II in the current curriculum, and the Primary Care Management courses in Adult, Geriatric, Pediatric and Reproductive Health courses in the forthcoming new curriculum.
