This study investigated the effect of using infant simulators with a structured, skill-based curriculum on child care attitudes and knowledge with a sample of 309 high school students from seven</p>
<p>different states. The intervention group included 152 students and the comparison group included 157. The results demonstrated the effectiveness of the curriculum and</p>
<p>infant simulator. This study has been published in national health journal.</p>
