Hospital consolidations, decreases in the number of nurses willing to serve as preceptors, and increased student-to-faculty ratios have profoundly restricted availability for student clinical rotations (Hauber, Cormier, & Whyte, 2010; Kameg, Clochesy, Mitchell, & Suresky, 2010; Partin, Payne, & Slemmons, 2011; Weaver, 2011), with critical care experiences the most limited of all clinical rotations (Beddingfield, Davis, Gilmore, & Jenkins, 2011).
Both quantitative and qualitative studies indicate that HFS skill and knowledge acquisition transfer to the clinical setting and enhance the safety of practice through improved conceptual understanding and critical thinking (Kameg et al, 2010; McCaughey & Traynor, 2010).
