Abstract

The shortage of clinical sites affects the nursing profession as nursing education programs need to limit their enrollment due to clinical availability (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2017). The make-up session was developed as a 1-day session in the nursing laboratory that was a robust alternative to replace a full day of clinical, aligned with student learning objectives for the specific specialty, and was fiscally responsible. Implementation A simulation experience focusing on safe medication administration and focused health assessment, a delegation and prioritization exercise, and a virtual clinical scenario related to the clinical specialty course was implemented as the clinical make-up session.
