Developments in computer technologies have thoroughly reformed nursing education (Saba & McCormick, 2006). Due to such developments, students who are now accustomed to using computers expect this tool to be incorporated into their education (Saba & McCormick, 2006). One exciting new technology is the field of human patient simulators (HPS), computerized life-sized mannequins that have the ability to formulate realistic case scenarios that can be altered rapidly to meet the instructors' educational goals. The purpose of this paper is to discuss historical perspectives of HPS, explore the capabilities and use of HPS, review studies to support the use of HPS in nursing education, discuss the effectiveness of the HPS in clinical simulations, and propose future uses for HPS.
