‌(CE) Virtual Simulation by-Proxy (VSbP): Alternatives to In-Person Simulation-based Hospital Training for Graduate Nurses : This CE webinar will show how a hospital-based clinical simulation program supported the transition to a virtual delivery methodology for a Nurse Residency Program during COVID-19. Background: Amidst the 2020-2021 COVID-19 pandemic, the Memorial Hermann Nurse Residency Program (Transitions to Practice Program) shifted to an entirely virtual content delivery platform (Zoom). In-person simulation-based training (SbT) in the System Clinical Education simulation center (MH SHINE: Simulation for Healthcare Innovation & Excellence) halted, and the need arose to continue facilitation of immersive SbT to augment didactic learning while in a virtual environment. Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of Virtual Simulation by-proxy (VSbp) as a viable SbT delivery methodology for hospital-based nurse residency programs. Methods: A QI project was conducted to implement a VSbp as an alternative to in-person simulation-based training (SbT) utilizing a high-fidelity simulator. Results: Results utilized to facilitate continued development and implementation of immersive SbT for the Memorial Hermann nurse residency program and other hospital-based simulation activities. Practice Implications: Implementing an immersive SbT methodology utilizing a virtual platform such as VSbp may foster continued development of the graduate nurse’s critical thinking while providing an engaging learning experience. Expanding the scope beyond the nurse residency program into the clinical hospital setting may support increased participation in SbT.

(CE) How to Create Low-Cost Asynchronous Virtual Simulation for Graduate Level-Nursing Students : This CE webinar will explore the application of a low-cost virtual simulation for Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) students as an effective way to teach non-technical, leadership skills by combining available technology and resources. Technology of low or no cost solutions were used to create an immersive experience that allowed students access to a timeline of critical events, recorded video interviews, and a live interaction with the family member. In the simulation, the DNP students function as hospital leaders in communicating medical error to a patient’s family member. The National League for Nursing Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning’s survey was used to measure outcomes. The majority of students reported the teaching method was effective and motivating and covered critical content necessary for the mastery of advanced practice nursing.

Leveraging Virtual Simulations for Enhanced APRN Education : In the evolving landscape of healthcare education, the integration of innovative simulation technologies has become essential for training Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs). This webinar, presented by Dr. Gonzalez, explores the significant advantages of utilizing Sentinel U’s screen-based simulations, specifically designed for the Acute Care Adult and Gero specialty focused on inpatient care. The webinar aims to illustrate how these simulations provide a comprehensive educational tool that aligns with the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) Core Competencies, thereby enhancing the training and skills of APRNs. During the session, we will introduce the key features of Sentinel U’s simulations, including robust comprehensive health records, consults, referrals, diagnostics, and imaging. Each aspect is crafted to foster critical thinking and decision-making skills through interactive components such as inquiry, review of systems (ROS), physical assessments, and differential diagnosing. The presentation will highlight how these simulations enable students to develop effective, evidence-based care plans. Attendees will gain insights through case studies and testimonials demonstrating the simulations’ impact on APRN education outcomes. This practical demonstration will showcase the depth and breadth of the learning experience facilitated by Sentinel U’s products.

(CE) The Rapid Acceleration of Virtual Simulation in Nursing Education : The events of the past year have not only drastically affected the nursing profession, but also the ways in which we provide instruction to student nurses. This informative and educational webinar will explore the pandemic’s continued impact on instruction, how nursing simulation will continue to play an integral role into 2022, and the future of virtual instruction as a permanent fixture in learning pedagogy. Joining this important conversation will be Director of Simulation-Based Education at UCONN School of Nursing Valorie MacKenna, Ph.D., RN; Assistant Director of Clinical Nurse Educator Simulation at the University of Washington School of Nursing Simulation Center Keondra Rustan, Ph.D., RN, CHSE, CNE; and Director of Curriculum and Instruction at Arizona College of Nursing Amber Kool, DNP, RN.
