Members of our Leadership Development Program for Simulation Educators work on year-long projects with sim leader colleagues across the country to promote simulation initiatives in nursing education. A new resource based on these projects was recently posted to the SIRC - Resources page. Read more about the survey to identify common components of simulation centers to assist simulation educators with guidelines for establishing or repurposing their simulation space and implementing a successful program.

Featured CourseBeyond Basic Debriefing
This course was designed to challenge educators to expand debriefing skills beyond the basics. Educators are being continuously tasked with modifying what and how they teach to facilitate students in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential to be safe, competent practitioners in the ever-fluctuating health care environment. The course will include: content on briefing as a component of the debriefing process; simulation activities where debriefing may expand participant outcomes; and different debriefing techniques, which may be combined, to increase participant competencies. Educators will develop a debriefing quality improvement plan.
