Abstract

Clinical competency is essential for nursing student preparation although acute clinical experiences are limited. An innovative pedagogical strategy was utilized to meet curricular requirements in a Family Health Nursing course. National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN), Health Education Systems Incorporated (HESI) exit and HESI maternity examination scores increased, and student feedback and faculty satisfaction improved. Program outcomes were not negatively affected by elimination of the acute care clinicals. Community clinical experiences with obstetrical simulation may be utilized as a feasible strategy to meet program outcomes.
