A Statewide Simulation Survey

By: Alaina Herrington, Sabrina Beroz, Melanie Cason The use of simulation has rapidly advanced as a teaching-learning strategy in nursing education. The NCSBN National Simulation study provides evidence that up to 50 percent of clinical experience can be substituted with simulation under conditions used in the study (Hayden, Smiley, Alexander, Kardong-Edgren, & Jeffries, 2014). Concerns emerged as prelicensure nursing programs

Are You Using High-Stakes Assessment? Do You Have Intra/Interrater Reliability?

By: Jean Ellen Zavertnik and Ann Holland Is high-stakes assessment in simulation used in your program? By this we mean “an evaluation process associated with a simulation activity that has a major academic or educational consequence” (Meakim et al., 2013, p. S7). As greater emphasis is placed on high-stakes assessment of simulation performance in nursing education, programs must ensure that
