CAE Juno Uses Simulation to Develop Critical Thinking Skills in Nurses

CAE recently suggested the new Juno QuickStart is the perfect nursing manikin bundle to satisfy clinical training and critical thinking skills requirements, especially in Nursing. There’s no need to wait to piece together everything needed as CAE Juno QuickStart is available right now.

For more than fifty years, critical thinking has been deemed an essential discipline within the nursing profession. Critical thinkers tend to possess certain attributes that engender effective communication and problem-solving abilities. In nursing, simulation training aids in the development of critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills. At the same time, simulation training promotes effective communication, encourages teamwork, and enables clinicians to better analyze healthcare situations by integrating knowledge, experiences and logical reasoning with crucial behaviors that benefit patient care.

Juno, a modern nursing skills development manikin, gives learners the opportunity to practice nursing care protocols in a risk-free environment while gaining critical thinking attributes that enhance clinical competency. Using a clinical skills manikin within patient simulation scenarios creates a bridge that joins theory with practice. Learners develop understanding, critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills. Knowledge and skills attained from the classroom, or sim lab, are readily applied in actual patient care scenarios.
