Abstract

This article discusses a simulated attempted suicide scenario used in an inpatient psychiatric setting for an undergraduate psychiatric mental health nursing course. This simulation may be adapted for medical and nonmedical settings for continuing education. The experience was planned, implemented, and evaluated within a caring framework. Faculty, along with a clinical expert, designed the activity to minimize intrapersonal anxiety and to maximize individual learning, peer awareness, and cooperative responses to emergent leadership within the group.
