This lesson provides a formative assessment of previously mastered concepts and skills. Students in the Health Science Internship Course or completing the Certified Patient Care Technician or Certified Nursing Assistant training programs should be proficient in analyzing a patient encounter as well as applying skills and knowledge to formulate a plan. Students will complete a pre-learning activity and pre-briefing before the simulation experience. A structured debriefing follows the simulation experience and serves as a formative assessment. This lesson will focus on standard and transmission-based precautions as well as communication skills.

Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in an apparently irreversible succession from the past , through the present , into the future. Time has long been an important subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularity has consistently eluded scholars. Time in physics is operationally defined as "what a clock reads". The physical nature of time is addressed by general relativity with respect to events in space-time.
The geologic time scale GTS is a system of chronological dating that classifies geological strata stratigraphy in time. It is used by geologists , paleontologists , and other Earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships of events in geologic history. The time scale was developed through the study of physical rock layers and relationships as well as the times when different organisms appeared, evolved and became extinct through the study of fossilized remains and imprints.
