White Paper: The EHR Imperative: Situated Learning is Successful Learning

Tim Bristol, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF

Situated learning can be described as learning in context. While this serves as a basis for simulation, the challenge we have in nursing education is that many high-level concepts are explored in artificial environments that look nothing like reality.

Now with the EHR, we can better help students in the classroom setting visualize the concepts being learned. Using the EHR in class enables students to bring their critical thinking into focus. While we would like every student to be standing next to a high-fidelity mannequin during each class or lecture, we know that is not possible. However, having each student in front of an EHR is very possible and allows simulations to be a part of class.
