c) Physiologic logs, maintained by the HFPS in PDF form, were used.
The HFPS used in the study recorded, at five-second intervals, all interventions as well as physiologic parameters useful in characterizing patient care outcomes associated with a participant's actions.
Nehring and Lashley (2004) confirmed the increased use of HFPS through a survey of nursing programs in 18 universities and 16 community colleges.
Recent attempts to determine the impact of the use of HFPS on nursing student performance have been inconclusive.
But does the evidence support HFPS as an alternative to clinical experience with real patients?
The theory is that HFPS can encourage students to push the limits of their abilities so that they can better learn what to do in a real clinical situation.
APRN students participated in HFPS exercises requiring complex case management at four intervals over a period of six months.
Each exposure to the HFPS provided the APRN student with 30 minutes of complex case management and a 20-minute debriefing with faculty upon completion.
Property LFPS HFPS Key features High heat/ High flow stiffness, structural V-O, inj.
6, if the part toughness requirement is >50 in-lbf, then LFPS does not have any true molding window, and HFPS has a molding window covering the upper third of the total area where melt temperature is 425 [degrees] F.
Both groups showed an increase in critical thinking skills; however, there was no statistically significant difference between the HFPS and case study groups.
The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of HFPS and instructor-written case studies on the development of critical thinking skills of associate degree nursing students enrolled in a health assessment course.
