Background Integration of telehealth preparation for nurse practitioner (NP) students varies across programs. Problem Nurse practitioner students had gaps in the preparation for using telehealth technology to deliver care and manage specific disorders. Approach The purpose of this article is to describe the development and implementation of a telehealth simulation training experience for NP students to prepare them for practice in rural settings. Outcomes Nurse practitioner students from various specialties completed the telehealth simulation training experience. The change in presimulation/postsimulation confidence and readiness scores were statistically significant. Conclusion This telehealth simulation training experience provided an opportunity for NP students to engage in activities to enhance their knowledge and preparation in providing care via telehealth in a rural setting.
