Abstract PURPOSE: To present an example of an innovative educational strategy using a theoretical framework for the design and evaluation of a virtual world simulation for family nurse practitioner (FNP) students. DATA SOURCES: The example arises from a primary care pediatric clinic developed for FNP students in Second Life(®) to supplement experiences in clinical practice sites. The simulation uses a case-based interactive format. The educational strategy is based on constructivist learning theory and experiential learning principles. Report of initial prototype testing of faculty and FNP students is reported. CONCLUSIONS: Virtual-world simulations have the potential to provide a safe environment for students to practice clinical decision making for pediatric patients. However, attention to the context, pedagogy, learner, and the capabilities of the technology is essential to provide a quality educational experience. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Preparation of FNP students can include quality educational experiences in a virtual world when guided by a theoretical framework. ©2012 The Author(s) Journal compilation ©2012 American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
