dc.description.abstract High Fidelity Human Patient Simulation (HFHPS) is becoming an increasingly common component of undergraduate nursing education. Research has not captured the long term impact of this learning modality on retention in the profession of nursing. The purpose of this exploratory descriptive study was to determine if experience with HFHPS during undergraduate nursing education effects career retention within the profession of nursing during the first two years following initial Registered Nurse (RN) licensure. Three research questions guided this study: What is the strength of correlation between the amount of time spent participating in HFHPS scenarios while enrolled in nursing school and the Registered Nurse graduates‟ retention in the nursing profession within the first two years of initial licensure? What is the relationship between participation in clinically specialized HFHPS scenarios and retention in corresponding clinical specialty areas within the first two years of initial licensure? Does the association between amount of time spent participating in HFHPS scenarios and retention in the nursing profession within the first two years of initial licensure vary among students graduating from different degree programs (Baccalaureate or Associate)? A postcard invitation to participate in an on-line survey was sent to 1427 RNs in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Respondents (n=89) self-disclosed demographic information, describing their retention in the nursing workforce and experiences with HFHPS during undergraduate nursing education. Results indicated that participation in HFHPS scenarios during undergraduate does not correlate with attrition from either the profession of nursing or the original unit of hire during the first two years of practice after initial RN licensure. en_US
