Main Article Content
Standardized patients (SP) have been utilized in nursing education lab simulations to offer students a realistic and standardized environment for practicing skills. The use of the SP for mental health education has not been widely used. Due to a lack of mental health clinical sites and safety concerns, using a SP in mental health nursing education is an exciting and viable option. Preparing and using the SP could be a way to make sure nursing students get the experience without the anxiety.
