US State Nursing Simulation Regulations for Prelicensure Nursing Programs

The much quoted 2014 NCSBN National Simulation Study suggests that simulation can replace up to 50% of traditional clinical time without any effect on clinical competency, comprehensive nursing knowledge assessments, NCLEX pass rates or overall clinical competency after six months of post licensure practice. However, the report does specify that this equivalency is only valid [...]

Downloadable NCLEX Test Plan Checklists for Nursing Simulation

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) has developed a licensure examination, the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), which is used by member board jurisdictions and most Canadian nursing regulatory bodies, to assist in making licensure decisions. In this article, Dr. Kim Baily, PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, previous Simulation Coordinator [...]

Physiology: The Force Behind Healthcare Simulation – A Guide for Techs, Part 9: Sepsis Labs Explained

Inclusion of laboratory tests in clinical simulation scenarios adds significantly to the realism of simulation since lab results are typically available in clinical practice. As sepsis and septic shock with subsequent multi-organ failure are the leading causes of death in adult intensive care units (ICUs), most healthcare simulation programs should consider medical simulation scenarios that [...]

Downloadable DASH Debriefing Tools From Center for Medical Simulation

Although the glitzy part of healthcare simulation often focuses on high fidelity manikins, most learning occurs during the debriefing. Debriefing clinical simulation experiences is increasingly understood as a crucial step in clarifying and consolidating insights and lessons from simulations. The Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) is designed to assist in evaluating and developing [...]
