Nursing Simulation Scenario Library

The Nursing Simulation Scenario Library is a resource for nursing educators in all settings and made possible by the generosity of the Healthcare Initiative Foundation. The library is being expanded through the support of the Nurse Support Program (NSPII) funded by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC). Please read the Terms & Conditions of use. We welcome your feedback on the library and encourage you to utilize and share this resource with other nurse educators.

Each library listing contains video (used either independently or with accompanying document(s) to enhance education using simulation in any setting) and accompanying documents (used as guides for educators to recreate content in areas relevant to practice).

Simulation Scenario: Code Blue

Description: Students respond to a code blue situation from a lecture. The simulation guide has two options for ending. The patient can be discovered to have a DNR order, or the patient is successfully resuscitated (as in the video). Depending on which one is used, the appropriate order sheet would be included in the scenario set up. The roles and function description is an additional document that can be used for student prep.
