Presenter: Jane Pearsall, RN, BNSc., M.Ed.
John Abbott College, Montréal, Québec
Providing high quality clinical experiences to prepare nursing students for the complexities of the current health-care system has become increasingly difficult. This webinar explored the presenter’s experiences in the development of an Obstetrical Simulated Clinical Experience for nursing students as partial replacement of traditional in-hospital learning. Participants will gain insight into the challenges and rewards of utilizing this form of simulation pedagogy, as well as the importance of simulation design including both prebriefing and debriefing aspects.
Objectives: By the end of the session, the participant will be able to:
- Identify the common challenges and fears faced by health care educators when developing a simulated clinical experience
- Develop an understanding of the need to incorporate an empirically supported simulation framework, by reviewing examples that have fostered high quality learning environments for students including the prebriefing and debriefing process.
- Describe the rewards of simulation pedagogy to the teaching and learning experience

Jane Pearsall is currently a tenured teacher in the Nursing Department at John Abbott College, an Anglophone CEGEP located in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue on the West Island of Montréal, Québec. There, she pioneered the first “Simulated Clinical Experience” in obstetrics for second year nursing students with the goal of optimizing student success and achievement in nursing education which, over the past six years, has grown to include both a multi-patient and multi-disciplinary approach. Her Master’s thesis titled, “The Impact of a Simulated Clinical Experience on CEGEP Nursing Students’ Perceptions of Self-Efficacy and Achievement” received the “Prix d’excellence en education,” the PERFORMA award by the Faculty of Education at the University of Sherbrooke for the quality of production and pedagogical intervention in college teaching. She was recognized for her contribution to the development of knowledge related to evolving teaching practices and pedagogical intervention in college education. Her research was presented at the annual SIM-one Expo in 2016. She has recently been awarded a grant from l’Entente Canada-Québec to conduct research related to clinical to simulation ratios and the impact on student success, cognitive load and mental wellness.
