This one-week immersive faculty enrichment program will provide nurse educators a rich experience to learn more about best practices in using clinical simulations in the nursing program. The full week will focus on the use of simulation pedagogy and the integration of simulations into the nursing curriculum.  Major concepts and activities used with simulations will be provided; a few examples include the simulation theory, best practices, and how to conduct a debriefing to name a few topics covered in the week.  Educators will be immersed in group work creating simulation scenarios, implementing the scenarios, and then evaluating the outcomes of the creative work.  Overall the week-long program will provide a rich faculty development opportunity to enhance teaching-learning skills around the use of simulation pedagogy with immersion on how to create, conduct, and evaluate clinical simulations.


Examine the INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation Discuss the essential elements of getting started to create a simulation-based curriculum Explain the NLN/Jeffries Simulation Theory Demonstrate how to write, implement and evaluate a simulation scenario Create a faculty development plan for implementing simulations into your nursing curriculum Describe the present and future direction for clinical simulations and nursing education implications


Individuals from either health or academic institutions who are interested in using simulation as a nursing teaching strategy are encouraged to attend. This course is set up from basic to complex moving the participant from novice to intermediate. It is not for the expert.
