What's New


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 Faculty Development in Simulation Toolkit to assist simulation educators with resources and links focused on steps to faculty developing skills in the use of simulation pedagogy.

A new simulation pedagogy course Simulation Pedagogy: What Every Faculty Member Needs to Know has been released, joining 10 updated courses designed to help nurse educators expand their skills in teaching simulation and meeting National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Simulation Guidelines. Online courses include interactive exercises and video clips of simulation scenarios, curriculum integration, debriefing, unfolding cases, and simulation-based interprofessional education. Click on:
