Presented by: Molly Schleicher MSN, RN, CHSE

Presentation Abstract

“How can virtual simulation be used to supplement or replace lost clinical hours?”

This is a question on so many minds at the moment. While the research and data to fully support this answer is still coming, there are several existing resources and theories around simulation-based education that can be used to help answer it.

Join us as we walk you through the current evidence and present virtual simulation practice examples to help meet your learners’ needs. We’ll be drawing from documents such as the INACSL and SSH Joint Position Statement on Use of Virtual Simulation during the Pandemic, the INACSL Best Standards of Simulation, a variety of academic papers, and more.

Duration (Hours): 1
Type of Offering: Webinar
Teaching Method: Lecture with Slide Presentation

Learning Objectives

  1. Review the current evidence and resources related to virtual clinical simulation
  2. Discuss virtual simulation practice and implementation
  3. Consider multiple pre-briefing, in-scenario, debriefing, and post-activity approaches to virtual simulation

Suggested Learner Level: Intermediate

Presenter Biography

Molly Schleicher MSN, RN, CHSE
Education Specialist
Oxford Medical Simulation

Molly Schleicher is an Educational Specialist with Oxford Medical Simulation. As a nurse with inpatient and outpatient experience and a love for learning, she fell into simulation education about 4.5 years ago while working as a Simulation Educator at Robert Morris University outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After beginning her career as a simulationist, she obtained her Masters in Nursing Education (MSN) and completed her certification with the Society for Simulation in Healthcare as a Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE). In addition to running simulations, Molly loves to debrief and is Harvard-trained in debriefing. She also loves to work with faculty on curriculum development, implementation planning and outcomes analysis. Outside of her life as an Educational Specialist, Molly is a mommy to two beautiful young children – Jackson (5, who loves to take care of patients in VR) and Alva Mae (3). She also has two wild dachshunds, Murphy and Ralphie with her husband of 8 years, Luke. They love to be outside in the yard, traveling as a family, and going to concerts and musicals (pre-pandemic, now socially-distanced).

Additional Presenters: Nathan Costiuc, NP


Molly works for Oxford Medical Simulation, a healthcare virtual reality simulation platform.
