Recruiting and Hiring SPs

 By Cedar Wang and Beth Hallmark In the famous words of Marvin Gaye, “Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby.” When it comes to increasing the realism of simulation scenarios, there is nothing like replacing a manikin with a live person. But how do you find the right person to play the “real thing” in a manner that suspends disbelief

It Has to Be Right … Teaching Debriefing to Nurse Educators

By: Sabrina Beroz What we know: Debriefing is where learning happens in simulation-based education. It is a reflective process that takes place after the simulation experience. Reflection allows the learner to integrate new information into preexisting knowledge enhancing learner outcomes; debriefing reframes prior frames. For students, the consequences of poor debriefing processes include the failure to attain learner objectives and

The Value of Prebriefing and Debriefing for Interprofessional Learning

IPE Simulation Series is a three-part series that focuses on using Simulation in the classroom and in practice.  Part 2 focuses on “IPE Learning”. By: Judy Murphy General Information: Prebriefing Prebriefing is critical to a successful simulation. “The purpose of prebriefing is to establish a psychologically safe environment for participants” (INACSL Standards Committee, 2016). Simulations can be quite intense. Participants

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

Academia to Bedside Series: Does Simulation Accelerate Progression from Novice to Expert? Part 3

Academia to Bedside is a four-part series that focuses on the transition of nursing students from education to their professional role. Part 3 focuses on the role of the Nurse Educator using technology (simulation) to help transition from the classroom to the bedside. By: Jean Zavertnik and Judy Murphy While nursing schools across the country use simulation to provide clinical

Moving from Disease-Based to Concept-Based Simulations

By: Alaina Herrington and Tonya Schneidereith How does one define curricular integration of simulation? The number of answers to this question will most likely equal the number of people asked…especially since there are countless ways for nursing programs to integrate simulation throughout the nursing curriculum. In 2015, a small group of our NLN Simulation Leader cohort found there was no
