Clinical boot camp: An innovative simulation experience to prepare nursing students for obstetric and pediatric clinicals

Academic Article


  • Obstetric and pediatric patients require unique specialized care not included in traditional adult health education. To prepare nursing students for clinical rotations beginning the second week of class, faculty developed an innovative one-day simulation seminar, the OB /PEDS Boot Camp, in which groups of students rotated through six stations of obstetric and pediatric simulation exercises. This article provides insight on the development and implementation of the OB /PEDS Boot Camp.
