Interprofessional learning (IPL) during formal training enables interprofessional collaboration (IPC) in the
workforce; however, on-campus IPL opportunities are seldom incorporated into curricula. We describe the
development and implementation of two hospital simulation tutorials between nursing and pharmacy
students. Students were required to provide “usual care” to a simulated patient at admission and discharge.
Apre–post survey design was used to evaluate changes in Interdisciplinary Education Perception Scale (IEPS)
score and student perceived educational value of the tutorials. The tutorials had a positive effect on IEPS
scores (p < 0.001), whereas gender and profession did not appear to influence scores (p = 0.082 and
p = 0.923, respectively). Tutorials were rated either good or very good by 89.9% of students and 79.6% of
students reporting new insights into the other profession This tutorial format could be easily adapted by
other institutions as an engaging and rewarding strategy to better prepare students for IPC the workforce.
